Tottenham have confirmed their second permanent departure of this January transfer window with defender Adam Smith following Simon Dawkins out of the exit door. Dawkins was due a move after several fruitless years at the club but at the start of last season, some of us were suggesting that Smith could be a serious rival for Kyle Walker in the right back position.
So were the club right to let him go? The player himself Tweeted his feelings on the matter and clearly wanted a permanent deal after so many loan moves away from White Hart Lane.
‘Thankful to Spurs for what they have done for me in my career! Felt it was right time for me to move on and settle somewhere and get more games under my belt to further my career so am looking forward to my new chapter at Bournemouth’.
Key to this move is the emergence of Ryan Fredericks who looked more than comfortable in his Europa League appearance before moving on to Millwall until the end of the season.
We wish Adam well but could he have aimed higher than a move to a club whose main ambition is to stay in the Championship?
