25-Man Squad – August 2019
With under 24 hours to go until the close of the transfer window I thought I would revisit the 25-man squad situation which I outlined previously here.
As it stands we have 24 players who would need to be named in our 25-man squad. And this is all fine because we have nine homegrown players.
|Danny Rose (HG)||02/07/1990||29|
|Ben Davies (HG)||24/04/1993||26|
|Harry Kane (HG)||28/07/1993||26|
|Harry Winks (HG)||02/02/1996||23|
|Dele Alli (HG)||11/04/1996||23|
|Anthony Georgiou (HG)||24/02/1997||22|
|Kyle Walker-Peters (HG)||13/04/1997||22|
|Joshua Onomah (HG)||27/04/1997||22|
|Cameron Carter-Vickers (HG)||31/12/1997||21|
Basically all of this means that we can sign one more non-homegrown player without worrying a jot about the squad. If we were to sign more than one more player, someone would have to be left out of the squad. This should not be a problem with Onomah likely to move on permanently, and Georgiou and Carter-Vickers likely to move on loan.
We have 15 non-homegrown players currently, but that includes Nkoudou who is likely to leave. We can name 17 in our Premier League squad. So the only thing that may get us into a bit of bother is if we were to go on a major spree and not manage to offload anyone. Otherwise, we have squad space and need not worry.
