Tottenham Hotspur may have to shift some deadwood this summer.
The club are, as yet, unaware of whether they will be playing European football next season.
The impact of the COVID-19 pandemic has, of course, hit many football clubs hard and it remains to be seen how much money will be available for Jose Mourinho to spend.
Shifting players who are not likely to play a key role under the Portuguese has to be a priority, then, and Kazaiah Sterling is set to be one of those on the way out.
Per Football Insider, Spurs will listen to offers for the striker, who has struggled to make any real impact in north London.
He has played just twice for the club’s senior side, with his most recent appearance being a nine-minute cameo in the 2017/18 season, coming on as a substitute in a 2-0 FA Cup loss to Crystal Palace. He also featured in a 2017 Champions League clash with APOEL Nicosia.
He has gone on loan to Sunderland, Doncaster Rovers, and Leyton Orient but has scored just two goals in senior football.
He has a year left on his Spurs contract but the report, perhaps unsurprisingly, makes it clear that he is not likely to ever play for the north London side again.
It looks as though he will be packing his bags this summer, then.
GIVEMESPORT’S Harry Sherlock says…
It’s going to be hard to find a buyer for Sterling.
His loan spells have not worked out and he has never been given a proper chance in north London.
Those short-term deals were surely designed to bring him up a level and to expose him to first-team football.
That simply hasn’t happened and his lack of goals is a concern.
He is valued at £1.6 million by Transfermarkt but one has to feel that Spurs would be mighty lucky to receive anything close to that sort of fee.News Now - Sport News
