Pundit: This is what has changed about Tottenham in transfer market
Former Chelsea striker Chris Sutton rubbishes talk of Tottenham selling their best players
Chris Sutton has insisted that Tottenham Hotspur are no longer a selling club.
The north London side were 4-0 winners against West Bromwich Albion at White Hart Lane on Saturday afternoon thanks to Harry Kane’s hat-trick and Gareth McAuley’s own goal.
Tottenham have managed to tie down Harry Kane, Christian Eriksen, Jan Vertonghen, Hugo Lloris and Dele Alli to new long-term deals over the past 12 months at White Hart Lane.
Spurs ended Chelsea’s 13-game winning run earlier this month to underline their status as genuine Premier League title contenders after a 2-0 victory over Antonio Conte’s side.
Speaking to BBC Radio’s 606 podcast after Spurs’s 4-0 win against the Baggies, former Chelsea striker Sutton poured cold water on talk of Tottenham selling any of their key players under Mauricio Pochettino.
“Spurs aren’t a selling club any more. That’s a big thing. Spurs shouldn’t sell and don’t need to sell. They don’t have to be,” Sutton said.
Tottenham finished in third place in the Premier League table last season but 11 points behind champions Leicester City.
Spurs signed five players in the summer transfer window as Pochettino looked to transform Tottenham into title winners.
