All the clubs in the Premier League have submitted their squads for this season, here's what Tottenham's looks like.

Now that the transfer window is closed, Barclay's Premier League teams had to submit their squad lists by this afternoon for registration. The squad list is limited to 25 players, of which there can be no more than 17 players who are not considered homegrown.

A Home Grown player is defined as one who, irrespective of his nationality or age, has been registered with any club affiliated to the Football Association or the Football Association of Wales for a period, continuous or not, of three entire seasons prior to his 21st birthday (or the end of the season during which he turns 21). Additionally, U21 players are do not count against the 25-man squad limit.

Here are the players that Tottenham Hotspur registered and their status as home grown.

Adebayor, Emmanuel (No)
Capoue, Etienne (No)
Chadli, Nacer (No)
Chiriches, Vlad Iulian (No)
Dembele, Moussa (No)
Friedel, Bradley Howard (No)
Holtby, Lewis Harry (No)
Kaboul, Younes (No)
Lloris, Hugo (No)
Bezerra Maciel Junior, Jose Paulo (No)
Cordiero, Sandro Raniere Guimaraes (No)
Soldado Rillo, Roberto (No)
Vertonghen, Jan (No)
Gomes, Heurelho Da Silva (No)
Dawson, Michael Richard (Yes)
Defoe, Jermain Colin (Yes)
Lennon, Aaron (Yes)
Naughton, Kyle (Yes)
Obika, Jonathan (Yes)
Rose, Daniel Lee (Yes)
Sigurdsson, Gylfi Thor (Yes)
Townsend, Andros (Yes)
Walker, Kyle Andrew (Yes)
Dawkins, Simon (Yes)

As you can see the list includes only 24 players, 10 of which are listed as home grown. Suprisingly, Simon Dawkins and Jon Obika were included in the team, despite Spurs not needing them to reach the homegrown requirement. Below is the list of U-21 players that Spurs have registered for the competition.

Akindayini, Daniel Oluwaseun
Amos, Luke Ayodele
Archer, Jordan Gideon
Ball, Dominic
Bentaleb, Nabil
Brown, Zodel Yeboah
Campbell Young, Channing Shelby
Carroll, Thomas James
Ceballos, Cristian
Coulibaly, Souleymane
Coulthirst, Shaquile Tyshan
Dombaxe, Laste
Eriksen, Christian
Fredericks, Ryan
Fryers, Ezekiel David
Gallifuoco, Giancarlo
Georgiou, Anthony Michael
Goddard, Cy
Gomelt, Tomislav
Harrison, Shayon
Kane, Harry
Lameiras, Ruben
Lamela, Erik
Lancaster, Cameron Paul
Lesniak, Filip
McEneff, Aaron
McEvoy, Kenneth
McGee, Luke Paul
McQueen, Darren
McQueen, Alexander Luke
Michael Percil, Roman
Miles, Jonathan David
Miller, William
Oduwa, Nathan
Ogilvie, Connor Stuart
Onomah, Joshua
Priestley, Liam Joseph
Pritchard, Alex David
Pritchard, Joe Cameron
Ross, Lloyd
Sonupe, Emmanuel Olukolade
Stewart, Kevin Linford
Veljkovic, Milos
Vigouroux, Lawrence
Vincent Young, Kane
Voss, Harry William
Walker Peters, Kyle
Walkes, Anton
Ward, Grant Antony
Winks, Harry

That quite a long list and, oddly, it includes many players who are out on loan. Also, it looks as though Harry Kane has a younger brother in the Spurs youth system (Editor's Note: It has been explained to me that I don't know how commas work and that the player I was referring to has the first name Kane. I liked my version of events better.). Maybe we'll have to start writing fun fan fiction about him. Anyways, the biggest names in the U-21 list are obviously Erik Lamela and Cristian Eriksen, both of who are going to play more matches than all the rest of these kids combined.

This is the Spurs squad for now. We can make changes again come January and since we only have 24 players registered and ten of them are homegrown we certainly have some wiggle room.
