TOTTENHAM’s recruiting restructuring continued with the departure of talent scout Brian Carey.
The ex-Leicester player, 53, has given up his role as head of recruitment after six years at the club.
Carey’s departure follows February’s resignation technical performance director Steve Hitchen.
That came after Hitchen’s influence was marginalized following the arrival of Managing Director of Football Fabio Paratici last June.
SunSport exclusively announced on Tuesday that Spurs are currently looking for a No. 2 for Paratici.
A statement from the club read: “We can confirm that Head of Recruitment Brian Carey has decided to step down from his role after six years at the club.
“We would like to thank Brian for his work and wish him all the best in the future.”
Transfer boss Paratici, 49, joined Spurs in June last year after 11 years at Juventus.
All three are players Paratici previously signed for Juve.
Spurs want to give the workaholic a little more support by looking for someone to work under the Italian.
This summer will be busy for Tottenham’s recruitment department with boss Antonio Conte – assuming he stays. looking forward to up to six new signings.
A left centre-back alongside Eric Dier and Romero is a priority.
Spurs are leading the race for West Brom unsigned goalkeeper Sam Johnstone as a competitor to captain Hugo Lloris, a right winger is also on the shopping list.
A new central midfielder could also be an option with club tracking Leicester’s Youri Tielemans and former hero Cristian Eriksenwhose short-term contract with Brentford expires in the summer.
The perennial dilemma of getting a striker to play second fiddle to Harry Kane could also be on the agenda.
Romero’s loan comes with a £42.5million purchase commitment, while Kulusevski’s loan is also expected to be made permanent.
