In recent years Tottenham Hotspur have become one of the biggest names in English football, challenging for honours domestically and pushing "the big four" for a place in the Champions League, narrowly missing out at the end of this season. To achieve this, the club has spent big on the likes of Emmanuel Adebayor, Moussa Dembele and Hugo Lloris, supplementing these signings by letting high earners leave for high sums of money - Luka Modric moving to Real Madrid is just one example in recent times.
Tottenham are in fact one of the few clubs to have reduced their overall debt in recent years. Their performances on the pitch have ensured that they have earned vital revenue through competitions on a domestic and European level, while they have only spent what they've earned through a "sell to buy" style policy.
Below you'll see how debt levels have changed at the club over the years compared to league position & goals scored in addition to other key stats. There's also a social media data analysis of who is the most valued player to the fans, compared to the clubs player of the year.
