The Daily Express are reporting that Tottenham have been boosted by the news that Ian Broomfield will return to the club’s scouting set-up.
Broomfield left his role as chief scout at QPR last week, with reports suggesting that Arsenal had immediately snapped up his services.
Quotes from Broomfield emerged last week suggesting that a move to the Emirates was done:
“The opportunity to work for Arsene Wenger at one of Europe’s top clubs, like Arsenal, was too good to turn down.”
“I appreciated my time at QPR with Harry, but this is an exciting challenge which I’m looking forward to,” he said.
Broomfield left Spurs as chief scout when Andre Villas-Boas took over at the club in 2012, and subsequently joined up with Harry Redknapp once more at QPR.
His return to Spurs suggests that Levy is looking to re-shape the squad in the summer, with Broomfield’s eye for talent likely to be key in doing so.
He was responsible for several key signings at Spurs before departing, with the likes of Dimitar Berbatov, Luka Modric, Gareth Bale, Jan Vertonghen, Moussa Dembele, Sandro and Hugo Lloris all signed while Broomfield was part of the set-up at White Hart Lane.
