Which 7 would you listen to offers for?
Tottenham have a list of players they will listen to offers for and a list they won't. Because someone is on the list that they'll listen to offers for doesn't man they will be sold, not everyone would be sold.
But for purchases to be made sales have to be made. There are only 12 days left until the window shuts for Premier League clubs at 11pm BST on 1 September 2014.
Last summer we had the 'Summer Seven' join the club so who should be the 'Summer Seven' this time around, who should be the seven you'd like to see someone generously take off our hands.
Before you list your seven there are a few points to remember.
Vorm debut 18th September or League Cup tie the following week
Vertonghen I'm ready for AEL Limassol on Thursday
Nerves affect players at all levels
For King enjoyment is one of the keys to success
Bernard on a season long loan?
What do Spurs fans want! We won
Dier shows why Freund role is important
Townsend to Southampton, no chance
We are only allowed 17 non-home grown players in a squad and Bentaleb is too young to count so to bring in any overseas players we have to sell some of them first.
Secondly we need cover for every position and at the moment have an extra centre-back having already bought Eric Dier, who I assume you all now approve of.
Tottenham Hotspur First XI Squad
My seven I'd let go:
1. Benoît Assou-Ekotto
2. Vlad Chiricheș
3. Younès Kaboul
4. Nacer Chadli
5. Tom Carroll
7. Roberto Soldado
1. Michael Dawson
2. Kyle Naughton
Younès Kaboul has 1 year left on his contract so we have to get a fee for him now while Michael Dawson has 2 years left so can be sold next summer.
DeAndre Yedlin doesn't arrive until next season any Ryan Fredericks isn't considered ready or he would have figured more by now so Naughton who you'd expect to sell can't be sold until he arrives really in my view. That gives him a stay of execution for a season.
