A number of Tottenham midfielders appear to be surplus to requirements this season, with the likes of Ryan Mason, Tom Carroll and Nacer Chadli all failing to make the squad for Spurs’ 1-1 draw with Liverpool.

If Sky Sports are to be believed, Chadli could be the first of the lot to exit the club. It appears the Belgian will join West Bromwich Albion on a season long loan.

Chadli has been a useful squad member since joining Spurs three years ago. But with a number of players now above him in the pecking order, it seems a move away from the club is the only way for the midfielder to secure first-team football this season.

The exit of Chadli could be followed by Ryan Mason’s departure. He has been linked with a permanent move to Hull City or Sunderland. Heung-Min Son is another attacking midfielder who could be on the move. Reports suggested he is a wanted man in Germany.

Do you think Tottenham are right to let Chadli leave?



  1. Yes…Chadli should leave. Somewhere I read that he is “pacy” and if a team is under that impression, sell him before those scouts wake up! There are several teams besides West Brom where he would help, including Hull or Sunderland.

    To get a chunk of change for a fringe player now seems to be a must. After all, I must not be the only Spurs fan who feels this team is lacking quality on the bench. Am I the only one who is worried that Spurs are going to land back into the ol’ standard of 5th or 6th and not get out of the group stages in UCL?

  2. No, I don’t think this is a good idea at all. Outside of Kane (and possibly Jannsen if he starts scoring), Chadli is the most prolific scorer we have, not only that but Chadli does it from a wide forward position.
    If we are to finally fix the central creative position with Isco (and I also think it would be a massive mistake not to bring in Coric aswell), then being able to play Chadli and Kane (a combination we know works) with say Isco and Eriksen (or Lamela) then we have creativity and major goal threat combined.
    Whilst I think dropping Chadli at times was essential to the progress of Lamela, there are times when we really need Chadlis goalscoring ability, which people have all too quickly forgotten.

  3. I find it hard to believe how quickly people forget the rate at which chadli was scoring and assisting in 2014/15 prior to his father dying when he was getting regular gametime.
    24 August 14 Prem QPR 4-0 -Chadli 2 goals
    13 September 14 Prem Sunderland 2-2 – Chadli goal and assist
    27 September 14 Prem Arsenal 1-1 Chadli goal
    5th October 14 Prem Southampton 1-0 Chadli assist
    2nd November 14 Prem Aston Villa 2-1 Chadli goal and MOTM
    9th November 14 Prem Stoke – Chadli goal
    17th December 14 Prem Newcastle 4-0 Chadli goal
    20th December 14 Prem Burnley 2-1 Chadli assist
    26th December 14 Prem Leicester 2-1 Chadli Assist
    1st January 15 Prem Chelsea 5-3 Chadli 1 goal and 2 assists
    5th January 15 FA Cup Burnley 1-1 Chadli goal
    That’s 9goals and 6 assists by early January, remembering of course that Eric Dier was still a central defender then, dembele wasn’t getting games, we were playing mason and bentaleb in midfield and Lamela was still finding his feet and wasn’t creating. So Chadli, getting regular game time had a hand in 15 goals in little over half a season and remember that he done that as a wide forward. That’s incredible form. I find it somewhat laughable to hear people say to get rid of Chadli and bring in the likes of Yarmolenko, Zaha and others. Chadli has proven he can do it at this level and I just think hes a great player to have in the squad, what we’d get for him wouldn’t cover what we’d lose getting rid of him.
