'Get Him Off The Wage Bill' - Exclusive: Pundit verdict on Tottenham big name
Noel Whelan has tipped multiple Tottenham players to follow Mauricio Pochettino to Paris Saint-Germain in January.
Speaking exclusively to Football Insider, the former Premier League forward claimed Dele Alli would be the first to reunite with his former boss in the French capital.
The Argentine and three members of his coaching staff are still on the wage bill at the club despite their dismissal last November with Pochettino picking up an £8.5million annual salary.
And Whelan has suggested the quartet will not be the only ones who move from north London to PSG.
He told Football Insider: “There may be players, with Pochettino going to PSG, that they can move on in January.

“Dele Alli is one. I think we can see now that there’s a difference of opinion with Mourinho and Dele Alli.
“He’s not produced the goods for a year and a half now.
“He had a blistering start in the Premier League with Tottenham – he was one of the first names on the team sheet. Now it just seems there’s something between the manager and player that doesn’t work.
“The best thing to do is get him out of the club whether that’s a loan or a permanent, so he can start again.
“I think he needs a change actually. I don’t think it’s going to work with him and Mourinho, I really don’t.
“To get him off the wage bill, because he’ll be on huge wages and get a player in who’s going to be a Jose Mourinho type of player because Dele Alli isn’t.”
