Tottenham Hotspur will make some money on this transfer deadline day regardless of what happens with their own players.
According to a report from the Express & Star, Tottenham Hotspur will ultimately receive a £500,000 financial boost without even doing anything.
The news comes after Swindon Town full-back-cum-winger Nathan Byrne completed a move to Wolverhampton Wanderers on transfer deadline day for a reported £1million.
Byrne was once on the books at Tottenham, where he played 12 times for their under-21 side, and when he moved on the North London club inserted a clause in his contract allowing them 50 per cent of any future transfer fee.
That sell-on fee means Tottenham will get half a million pounds for a transfer deadline day move even if they do not wave goodbye to any more of their current squad in the remaining hours.
It may be scant consolation for fans of the club if Spurs do not pull a rabbit or two out of the hat before 6:00pm this evening, with Mauricio Pochettino’s side in desperate need of a new central midfielder and an additional quality striker, but only time will tell what happens in that regard…
