In an official statement on their club website, Spurs announced the deal along with a brief overview of Mitchell’s career, which most recently included a successful spell with the Saints, whom he joined in January 2012 to manage their Scouting and Recruitment department.
Prior to his spell on the South Coast, Mitchell enjoyed a playing career with Wigan Athletic and MK Dons. He initially took up the role of Community Ambassador with the Dons when he retired from playing in 2009 at the age of 27.
The source adds that, following the appointment of Karl Robinson as Dons manager in 2010, Paul was assigned to his back room staff as Head of Recruitment, recognising his aptitude for identifying player talent.
Mitchell, now 33, played 64 league games for Wigan between 2000 and 2005, and a further 59 with the Dons. He also had loan spells at Halifax, Swindon, Wrexham and Barnet.
