Spurs boss AVB driving out his English players

Doubts over Tottenham's English core are surfacing.

The foreign transfer policy of new manager Andre Villas-Boas is raising questions.

The Daily Star says Villas-Boas regards himself as a young, dynamic and successful manager and he wants to remake Spurs in that image.

His transfer policy threatens to turn the club into a United Nations enclave, with English players like Michael Dawson, Tom Huddlestone, David Bentley and Jermaine Jenas all transfer-listed.

There are even question marks over the future of Jermain Defoe in the Villas-Boas system.
