Graham Roberts has criticized Tottenham’s recruitment of Ryan Sessegnon, Joe Rodon and Jack Clarke.
The trio, who were bought by Spurs in 2019 and 2020, have so far struggled to make the desired impact during their time in north London.
Sessegnon, 21, the most expensive of the three, has only made 22 appearances (transfer market) for the club since securing a £25m transfer from Fulham (BBC Sports) with most of his passage being disrupted by injury.
Clarke was acquired in the same transfer window as Sessegnon after a breakthrough campaign with Leeds, but spent most of his time with Tottenham’s reserve side.
After returning straight on loan to the Yorkshire side, the winger also had spells with QPR and Stoke with his services now taken to Sunderland for the rest of the campaign.
Meanwhile, Rodon has also faced limited playing time and has only made one Premier League appearance this season (transfer market), Antonio Conte often neglecting the Welsh international.
Former Spurs defender Roberts can’t believe his former side signed the aforementioned players, who cost the club an estimated £45million (TransferMarkt).
roberts said GiveMeSport“You didn’t have to go buy Sessegnon, Rodon and Clarke. You don’t need it.

All three haven’t progressed as the club expected. Sessegnon probably has the highest chance of succeeding out of the three having been used quite frequently, while Rodon is a big question mark considering he’s now 24. Clarke is still young, but no one knows if he has what it takes to make it happen.
