‘The start of new era’ – Tottenham announce that nine players are leaving the club

Tottenham has announced that nine players will depart the club as their contracts expire at the end of June, writes the Daily Mail.

These changes come as new manager Ange Postecoglou begins his preparations for the 2023-24 season. According to the club’s official website, Clement Lenglet will be returning to Barcelona after completing his loan spell, during which he made 35 appearances for Tottenham.

Another loanee, Arnaut Danjuma, will be heading back to Bournemouth. Danjuma had 12 appearances for Tottenham and scored two goals, but the club has decided against a permanent signing.

Lucas Moura, who scored 39 goals in 221 games for Tottenham, has already been confirmed to be leaving the club. Moura’s memorable hat-trick against Ajax in 2019 propelled Tottenham into the Champions League final.

Additionally, six members of the development squad, namely Jamie Bowden, Kallum Cesay, Malachi Fagan-Walcott, Roshaun Mathurin, Marqes Muir, and Romaine Mundle, will be released. Among them, Fagan-Walcott made a competitive appearance as a late substitute against RB Leipzig in the Champions League back in 2020. Bowden had a loan spell at Oldham Athletic in 2021, while Cesay has earned four caps for Sierra Leone. Furthermore, Tottenham will also part ways with under-18 players Thomas Bloxham, Brandon Bryan-Waugh, and Riley Owen.
