With just hours of the transfer window remaining before it closes tomorrow, it’s been a pretty uneventful day for Spurs.
Yet one deal does seem close to being announced. Reports claim that Erik Lamela will join Marseille on a season long loan. Here’s how Twitter reacted to the news.

Looks like Lamela is going to Marseille on loan. Shoulda given him another season imo. Hopefully he dos outstanding there and comes back.

What worries me about the Lamela situation is how long Poch persevered with him before deciding he was surplus to requirements. #COYS

So we leave Son & NJie late which means Lamela goes on loan at last min instead of getting in a decent fee

Lamela loan will free up wages. N'Jie/Son/Townsend/Chadli/Pritchard the wide options, possibly Mousa too. Ligue 1 may suit his style more.

Loaning out Lamela and then loaning in James Wilson would be worth it just for the meltdown.

Don't understand why we would loan Erik Lamela out, there is no advantage for us to do so. #COYS

I will not believe Erik Lamela is gone until I see Brian Lamela tweeting Marseille team news
