Harry’s been a busy man!
Already shown what he is capable of in his short cameo spells on the pitch, most effectively last weekend against Birmingham. Sure to be a good partner for Jermain Defoe but can’t quite annexe Robbie Keane from the winning side just yet.
19 year old defender loaned straight back to Sheffield United and is one for the future. Clearly his form hasn’t been effected by the strange nature of being sold and placed back whence he came, the Blades remain unbeaten and Walker has started every game.
Potentially the more promising of the two youngsters from Bramall Lane, Naughton will take a while to settle and will probably only be a bit part player this term. Thus far only a very short stint at Upton Park to show for his move to White Hart Lane. An exciting prospect for sure.
Timely purchase joined just in time to take part in his debut for the club ten days later at home to Liverpool where he of course scored the winner. Solid defender who may well cause Harry a selection headache when his usual choices are fully fit. Calm on the ball and pretty useful at attacking set plays.
Deadline day deal that was a very useful bargain buy. He can help the club by acting as a stop gap until Luka Modric gets back from injury but will surely play a constant role at the club even when his international teammate returns from his lay off. Kranjcar is a silky skilled player who should add more creativity to a midfield which is already hitting the high notes this season.
Frustrating player who was at times a very capable part of the team but far too often underperformed during his three year spell at the club. Harry will be very pleased to have received around £8.5m for the Ivorian.
Only at the club for just over a year and a half and never really got a chance to show what he could do. Managed just three Premier League starts and was subbed each and every time. A move to Nottingham Forest suited all parties.
Much maligned player who arrived with a big fan fare and even bigger transfer fee that he could never wish to fulfill. Had two decent seasons and was of course last seasons top scorer but was never really a player Redknapp valued. Has already made an impact at Sunderland but it certainly not being missed by Spurs.
Quite why he was brought back to the club last season was beyond most. The at times competent Frenchman was offloaded to Blackburn Rovers where he will no doubt flatter to deceive before Sam Allardyce in turn tries to sell him, perhaps back to France.
A player who was supposedly one of the up and coming hot prospects of German football was pretty shoddy when he did get a chance to play and a player who never really looked good enough to play Premier League football. Redknapp will be pleased he got £4m back for the midfielder who I am confident will not set the world alight at Fratton Park.
So all in all the club appeared to have sold players that in the main needed to be gotten rid of and brought in players who more than make up for those who left. What do Spurs fans make of their summer business deals?
