Van de Ven and Maddison update as Postecoglou asks Daniel Levy for transfer help

Tottenham’s squad is getting smaller by the week, so Ange Postecoglou will need all the support he can get.

With 10 wins from their first 17 games and only 4 losses, the Spurs are four points off the top of the table thanks to the wonders of their head coach. This is despite the fact that their injury or suspension list has frequently fluctuated around and occasionally into double figures.

Tottenham’s 2-0 victory over Nottingham Forest on Friday night not only made it two wins in a row, but it also resulted in more players being sidelined. Yves Bissouma was sent off, meaning he will miss four games before the Africa Cup of Nations, and Destiny Udogie received his fifth yellow card of the season, meaning he will miss one game.

Postecoglou is anticipating a lengthy list of injured players returning to the football team in the upcoming season.It is understood in London that Micky van de Ven, the young Dutch center-back who started running outside after suffering a hamstring injury, is ahead of James Maddison in the race to return to action. Following knee surgery, Manor Solomon is also making progress in his recuperation, and the Spurs manager is hoping that as January goes on, he will be able to get some players back.

But he will lose captain Son Heung-min to the Asian Cup, as well as Bissouma and Pape Matar Sarr to the Africa Cup of Nations.

In an attempt to prevent Spurs from being unduly impacted by the squad issues, Postecoglou has joked that he has written to Santa requesting early transfer deals in January. On Saturday afternoon, he spent with his chairman, Daniel Levy, sitting next to each other behind the dugouts at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium during the Spurs women’s historic and magnificent North London Derby victory.
