Tom Carroll has signed for Swansea today for a reported £4.5m.
Now 24-years old, it seems like the right time for the diminutive midfielder to leave the club. Carroll has only played three times this season and has little chance of ever becoming a regular at Spurs.
Tottenham fans seem to be in agreement that the move is the right decision, though there has been some difference in opinion as to why Carroll was unable to make it at White Hart Lane.
Here’s how Spurs Twitter reacted to the news.

#thfc Spurs confirm Tom Carroll's exit. Just seemed a bit timid to me, on and off the pitch. Harry Winks appears to be much more confident.

Tom Carroll is a very, very talented playmaker who should thrive at just about any club but the one he grew up supporting and playing for.

I always wish the best for players from our youth & Carroll is no different. Just not Spurs quality at all, but hope he does well @ Swansea.
