So, with the deadline now done we can get in and focus on the match at hand as we face Burnley later today.
Tottenham currently faces a dilemma as they have exceeded the limit for registering non-locally trained players in their Premier League squad after the transfer window closed, with 19 such players when they are only allowed 17.
While Spurs have until after the international break to register their squad in case of injuries during international duty, today’s match should give us a glimpse of the gaffer’s strategy.
Hugo Lloris and Tanguy Ndombele are two players who can still leave the club, and Postecoglou has already indicated that he won’t be registering Lloris for the upcoming season.

Brennan Johnson, whom we signed for a whopping £47.5 million, arrived too late to participate in the Burnley match, missing the 12 pm deadline yesterday. As a result, he will have to wait until after the break to make his debut.
Postecoglou is expected to stick with the team that has secured consecutive Premier League wins – the only new absence being midfielder Giovani Lo Celso, who has a quad injury sidelining him until after the international break. Lo Celso’s absence will likely shed light on which players are still part of Postecoglou’s plans, with attention turning to who makes the bench – Eric Dier, Ndombele, or even a third goalkeeper in Brandon Austin.
