Sherwood praises Everton transfer policy

Tottenham Head Coach Tim Sherwood has praised Premier League rivals Everton for their transfer policy and use of the loan system to have a successful season, the Daily Express has reported.

Last summer, Everton spent a reported £15m for Wigan Athletic midfielder James McCarthy, as well as signing the Irishman’s teammates, Antolin Alcaraz and Arouna Kone. Manager Roberto Martinez also bolstered his squad by bringing Gareth Barry and Romelu Lukaku in on loan from Manchester City and Chelsea respectively.

Going into this season, all of those players had Premier League experience, and they have helped Everton become many people’s favourites to finish in the top four at the expense of Arsenal.

Meanwhile, Tottenham, before Sherwood was appointed, splashed the cash on several players who had no Premier League experience. After a summer which saw over £100m spent and the club’s transfer record being broken twice, Spurs have had something of a difficult campaign, which has included several heavy defeats.

And Sherwood believes that Everton’s transfer policy is an example that Tottenham should follow. He said: "You can buy someone who's never played in the Premier League and he comes over and is a revelation but it's more of a risk doing that.

"Premier League experience for me would be key. If you want to look at any team it would have to be Everton and what they did in the transfer market was second to none. On deadline day they looked like an average side but all of a sudden they make three signings and it has turned them into what they are now.’
