What club chair would ever come out and talk publicly about what wages they are or are not prepared to pay? The priority for several years past has been to put any spare money into our new training centre and then our new stadium complex. The training centre is all finished apart from the ongoing construction of a player lodge/overnight accommodation. The stadium will be finished in 9 months time and then the only remaining construction project will be the adjacent hotel, apartments and houses. Debt servicing has been ongoing during this period. All of this means that the focus of Spurs expenditure will soon be much less on construction costs and so can switch more into two areas: debt principal repayment and player wages/player recruitment. Much higher income and much less construction costs: it stands to reason that more money will be available for player wages.
