Tottenham transfer news: Pochettino could let midfielder go and return for one of his favourites

Posted by

The Telegraph reports that Tom Carroll could be let go by Tottenham Hotspur at the end of the season.

The 23-year-old is out of contract in the summer and Mauricio Pochettino might attempt to bolster his midfield ranks with the signing of Victor Wanyama from Southampton, according to The Telegraph.

Pochettino managed Waynama very successfully for the Saints before moving to White Hart Lane, where he has overseen Tottenham’s transformation into arguably the most exciting team in the country.

Spurs saw their Premier League title dreams come crashing down with Monday’s 2-2 draw to London rivals Chelsea at Stamford Bridge, but they have still enjoyed a wonderful season under Pochettino.

The Telegraph claims that Pochettino tried to sign Wanyama, 24, last summer. When he failed, Carroll came into the fold and played his part, making 29 appearances in all competitions this term.

The England Under-21 international came through the Tottenham academy. He made his first-team debut in 2011 and has featured 52 times in total, scoring three goals – all of them this campaign.

Carroll has had loan spells, of varying degrees of success, at Leyton Orient, Derby County, Queens Park Rangers and Swansea City, for whom he made 13 Premier League appearances in the 2014-15 season.

He has not let Pochettino down when called upon, but the potential arrival of Wanyama may leave him surplus to requirements. He would be a shrewd signing for many top-flight teams on a free transfer.
