Tottenham initiate major squad overhaul as eight players leave the club

By Mehdi Gokal -

Ange Postecoglou is gearing up for a significant squad overhaul in the upcoming transfer window, with eyes set on next season.

The Australian manager has ambitions of contending for the Premier League title, necessitating an elite squad capable of challenging the top teams.

Tottenham Hotspur have already initiated this process by releasing eight players from their squad this Wednesday.

The club announced on their official social media platform X the departures of Japhet Tanganga, Ryan Sessegnon, Eric Dier, and Ivan Perisic, following the conclusion of their contracts.

Spurs expressed gratitude to these players for their contributions and wished them success in their future endeavours.

In addition to these four first-team players, the Lilywhites also released four youth players: Charlie Sayers, Billy Heaps, Kieran Morgan, and Han Willhoft-King.

One of Tottenham’s longest-serving players, Dier, who had been on loan at Bayern Munich, is set to make his move to the German club permanent after his Spurs contract expires this month.

Perisic’s exit was also expected, as he had announced his intention to return to his boyhood club, Hajduk Split, earlier in January.

However, the Lilywhites had options to extend the contracts of Tanganga and Sessegnon by an additional year but opted to part ways.

The 24-year-old Sessegnon has heavily struggled with injuries since joining the North London outfit from Fulham in 2019, making his departure likely.

Tanganga, who has been with Tottenham since the age of 10, will leave after 15 years with the club. The 25-year-old defender is expected to join Championship side Millwall, where he has made a positive impression.

These departures signal the start of major changes at Spurs as they seek to reshape their squad and build a competitive team for the upcoming season.
