Spurs to snap up Saints head of recruitment

The transfer window may not be open again until January, but have Spurs pulled off one of the best signings today? Southampton’s head of recruitment, Paul Mitchell has been snapped up for Tottenham after they saw the fine work he’s done at St Mary’s.

After Gareth Bale was sold to Real Madrid, Spurs went trigger happy and began snapping up players from across the world, however, fans would suggest there was a lack of care in who was signed by the club. It appears, Daniel Levy has identified Mitchell as a man who can aid Spurs revival this January.

The former Wigan and MK Dons player, Mitchell has already worked closely with Mauricio Pochettino when he was at Southampton and now is ready to jump ship and re-join the Argentine manager at Tottenham.

When Southampton’s mass exodus over the summer spiralled out of control, Saints fans were condemning their club to relegation. Alas, the work of Paul Mitchell helped Ronald Koeman acquire some of the best talents across Europe and has helped fire his side into second place in the Premier League.

According to Sky Sports, Mitchell is set to complete a move to Spurs imminently as he looks to re-create the same set-up he adopted at Southampton. Can Spurs benefit from recruiting Paul Mitchell to White Hart Lane?
