spurs v swansea city notes



they are linked with both

Ronnie Burgess Moved from Tottenham to Swansea and after a spell as a player, he took over the manager's job at the Vetch Field.
Tom Carroll Left Spurs for Swansea in January 2017 after making the first team at Tottenham working his way up through the ranks.  A skilful, but slightly built midfielder, his technical ability was unquestioned, but with strong competition of the role in the Spurs first team, he was not getting regular football and chose to move to the Liberty Stadium.
Willie Davies Left Spurs for Swansea in 1933.
Ben Davies Welsh international left back who joined Spurs in a swap deal that took Gylfi Sigurdsson to Swansea in 2014, for a fee of 10,000,000.
Percy Hooper Spurs keeper signed professional in October 1935, playing 230 games either side of the World War II and moved to Swansea later in his career making 12 league appearances in two seasons there.
Charlie Handley Discharged from the Army, forward "Tich" spent a year before making his debut and went on to play a total of 132 first team games scoring 36 goals between March 1922 and May 1929.  Joined Swansea Town for 500.  Played all along the forward line and was noted for his deft footwork when on the ball.
Cliff Jones Joined Spurs from Swansea Town.
Ernie Jones Came to White Hart Lane from Swansea Town, signing just before the end of the 1946-47 season and stayed until he was used in the deal to bring Alf Ramsey to Spurs from Southampton.
Terry Medwin Joined Spurs from Swansea Town.
Kyle Naughton Came to Tottenham form Sheffield United, with a double deal that also saw Spurs sign Kyle Walker.  Initially, Naughton played regularly, but injury and competition saw him drop out of favour, leading to him choosing to leave for the Liberty Stadium, where he put in regularly consistent performances for the Swans. 
Wayne Routledge .
Gylfi Sigurdsson Icelandic midfielder who didn't really get the opportunity to shine for Tottenham after joining from German club Hoffenheim, moved on to Swansea, where had previously been on loan, in a swap deal that took Ben Davies to White Hart Lane in 2014, for a fee of 10,000,000.
Michel Vorm Spurs signed Vorm in a slightly controversial manner when he came as part of the deal to bring Ben Davies to White Hart Lane, but Vorm was classed as a free transfer.  This meant that his former club NAC Breda did not get any sell-on money and this prompted them to pursue the case against Swansea, with Spurs being the innocent party in the pricing of the player.  Vorm went on to be a useful back-up keeper to Hugo Lloris.
Arthur Willis Went from Spurs to Swansea.
Alan Woods .
