So the dust has settled on the summer transfer of August 2011 and while it was a busy day at Spurs Lodge, was it a satisfactory one?
Five of our fringe players have left the club, albeit two are on loan with seemingly no future at the Lane and while Harry Redknapp said at the weekend that fresh faces were needed, we only ended up with one – Scott Parker who arrived from West Ham.
Those transfers in full are:
Wilson Palacios – Stoke, £8m
Peter Crouch – Stoke, £10m
Alan Hutton – Aston Villa, undisclosed – probably £3m to £3.5m
David Bentley – West Ham, loan
Jermaine Jenas, Aston Villa, loan
Don’t forget that earlier in the transfer window the club brought in Emmanuel Adebayor, Brad Friedel, Souleymayne Coulibaly, Cristian Ceballos and Yago Falque. So overall, was it a good summer or another let down?
