Speaking on his YouTube channel, Alasdair Gold has shared the details of one transfer policy that is now being employed at Tottenham.

The reporter was discussing the fact that Yves Bissouma and Fraser Forster picked up coronavirus during their pre-season tour of South Korea, and that led to the journalist sharing what he knows about the club’s current covid policy.

Interestingly, Gold is led to believe that the north London club have a policy wherein they will not sign any players who haven’t been vaccinated against the virus.

What’s been said?

Gold discussed Spurs’ new transfer policy.

“It’s interesting the whole covid thing. From what we understand Spurs have a policy that if you’re going to sign for them you have to have your vaccine. Where it is now with potential side effects and long-term effects of covid, clubs are just protecting themselves now, there’s the insurance side of things, the financial element, these are multi-million pound assets,” Gold said.

“From what we understand they would make it clear that you would have to go and get yourself vaccinated before signing for them, which, in essence means that if there’s no vaccination there’s no transfer. That leads into another minefield of ethical stuff and all of this. Yeah, it’s fascinating, that’s a whole other subject as well.”

Protecting themselves

This is bound to be a controversial stance in certain circles, but it’s an understandable viewpoint for Spurs to be taking.

As Gold says, footballers are multi-million-pound assets, and you don’t want to risk them having a long-term illness, especially if it’s avoidable via vaccination.

Plenty of footballers have been affected by covid over the past 18 months or so. In fact, even Lionel Messi wasn’t immune to the effects of the virus, and if arguably the best player of all-time was struggling, nobody can confidently say that this illness won’t affect their career.

Spurs have made their stance clear on this, and it’s hard to blame them for having this policy in place.
