This battling Premier League midfielder would have been a superb summer addition for Spurs

Spurs shocked everyone over the summer when they decided not to splash out in the transfer market and added no new players to their squad.

Mauricio Pochettino decided to put the full trust in his current players, and so far, barring a narrow defeat at Watford, he has been rewarded as Spurs began the season in fine form.

A move to Wembley might still be on hold, and the lack of signings might be a worry for some Spurs fans, and we here at the Tavern agree to an extent that one or two new players wouldn’t have done any harm over the summer months.

One man we think would have been an excellent addition is Burnley midfielder Johann Gudmundsson, who has been excellent for the Clarets over a number of seasons now, becoming one of Sean Dyche’s key men in the middle of the park.

Gudmundsson has really developed his craft over the last few years, and his experience at international level with Iceland has also done his career the world of good.

The 27-year-old is likely to be entering the prime years of his career, and while not the most glamorous or standout name on the map, he would do an excellent job for a team like Spurs, where he would no doubt be keen to prove himself in the Champions League.

A battling player but with enough about him on the ball to succeed, we think Gudmundsson would have been a superb summer addition for Spurs and Pochettino.

Spurs fans, what do you think? Would this have been a good signing? Let us know in the comments!
