Tottenham Hotspur have sold one of their youth products to a Championship club.
Tottenham Hotspur had a very busy transfer deadline day, but only in regards to outgoings.
Spurs supporters across the world prayed that Daniel Levy and Jose Mourinho would bring in a star striker to replace Harry Kane, who is injured until April.
But despite speculation about Olivier Giroud and Odion Ighalo, Tottenham failed to sign a number nine.
They did, however, lose a couple of centre-forwards.
The North Londoners sanctioned loans for academy prospects Shilow Tracey and Kazaiah Sterling, who moved to Macclesfield Town and Leyton Orient respectively.
But the decision to sell another youth product hasn't gone down very well.
Tottenham sold 19-year-old midfielder Tashan Oakley-Boothe to Championship side Stoke City on a permanent basis late last night.
The teenager had managed to make one senior appearance - against Barnsley back in 2017 - and suffice to say that fans of Lilywhites weren't all that pleased to see their club offload him on a permanent deal.

Is this a loan or permanent sale? If it’s permanent Spurs just made a huge mistake.— Sim (@Sim_The_Analyst) January 31, 2020
