Tottenham Hotspur manager Andres Villas Boas is preparing for a mass exodus at White Hart Lane by placing ten of his first team players up for sale, the Metro understands.
The 35 year old is keen to restructure his squad for a Champions League push next season, having narrowly missed out to North London rivals Arsenal last time around.
David Bentley and William Gallas have already left the club after not having their contracts renewed.
Strikers Jermaine Defoe and Emmanuel Adebayor are set to be the highest profile casualties, with the pair having scored just sixteen goals between them last season, while England’s 2011 Player of the Year Scott Parker is also surplus to requirements.
Goalkeeping duo Heurelho Gomes and Brad Friedel are likely to move on having fallen out of favour to France number one Hugo Lloris, along with Tom Huddlestone and Benoit Assou-Ekotto who have over 300 league appearances for Spurs between them.
This list is completed by Andros Townsend, Iago Falque and Bongani Khumalo.
