Tottenham Hotspur manager Tim Sherwood has admitted that he is prepared to let several of the club’s fringe players leave this month, according to Sky
Following the sacking of Andre Villas Boas, Sherwood inherited a large squad which has proved difficult to accommodate first team football for everyone.
When asked if he was willing to let players go, he said: “Yes, absolutely. As long as they’re the players I don’t want to take us forwards, then I’m happy (to sell them).
“But it’s sometimes a case of supply and demand. We’ve got fantastic players here at the club and if we were to lose no one I wouldn’t be shedding any tears, but you can only go with a certain amount of players and the pressure’s on because it’s a World Cup year for a lot of these players. It’s important that they’re playing.”
After the record transfer of Gareth Bale to Real Madrid in the summer, the London club brought in seven new players but there are already some who are looking for an exit.
Spurs spent heavily on players but Nacer Chadli, Etienne Capoue and Lewis Holtby look set on moves elsewhere as they hope to boost their World Cup ambitions.
Despite being willing to let players leave, the manager has said that the club are unlikely to bring in any new faces in the transfer window but they will not be leaving the team short of options.
