Jose Mourinho finally agrees to allow Spurs midfielder to depart before deadline day

Jose Mourinho has reportedly agreed to allow midfielder Dele Alli to depart in-favour of a loan switch to team-up with former manager Mauricio Pochettino at Paris-Saint Germain.

Dele, 24, joined Spurs from League One side MK Dons in 2015 in a deal worth £5.97m, as per Transfermarkt.

Since arriving in the country’s capital, Dele quickly rose to the forefront of England’s top-flight and was widely-regarded as one of the most technically gifted young talents in Europe.

Having featured in 234 matches in all competitions for Spurs, Dele has racked up a very decent 121 direct goal contributions, in all competitions.

However, despite being one of Pochettino’s most reliable players during his five-year reign as Spurs’ head coach, Dele has since found himself fall way down the pecking order in Mourinho’s first-team plans.

After only featuring in 12 matches in all competitions so far this season, Dele’s long-term future has become the subject to much speculation.

Despite being heavily linked with a winter move to Paris-Saint Germain, so far, a proposed move has failed to materialise.

That could all be set to change though.

According to a recent report from the Daily Mail, Mourinho has finally agreed to allow Dele to reignite his career under the guidance of Pochettino at Paris-Saint Germain.

However, despite Mourinho’s willingness to see the Englishman depart before Monday’s transfer deadline, it is understood that chairman Daniel Levy is still yet to sign the move off.

Currently suffering a spate of injuries to first-team players, Levy is believed to be reluctant to trim his squad even further.

Levy has a little over 24-hours to sanction Dele’s switch to PSG with the 24-year-old now forced to sweat on his chairman’s final decision.

    Don’t believe it. If Levy sanctions an Alli move then all hopes have gone for everything. Jose’s awful tactics, boring and ‘fear filled’ performances, Kane’s inevitable injuries, no creativity (Kane apart) in the side since Alli being sidelined and Eriksen’s departure. Oh yes. I’m sure Levy will put the tin lid on all of that by sanctioning the loan or sale of a young world class player who would simply like to stay and play!!!

    Never wanted Mourinho, and I am sensing levy is wondering if his appointment was wrong.
    Over the period of management of Pochetino, Spurs played a dynamic style of pressing high line attacking football.
    Now this stale dross.
    with Kane injured, Dele on his way to PSG and Bale not trusted, what do we have to look forward to.
    League cup final or not, mid table mediocrity is looming, and do I believe is the end of the Boring one.

    SURE Jose is not right person to manage spurs Levy DEFENITLY makes mistake
    Spurs did not play attack over ,50 percentage so far since new season Spurs play defending and the ball is mostly in Spurs Defender area all the time
