Tottenham have sold another player, and this time it's a pretty sad development. The club announced today that they have reached an agreement to sell talented 17-year old Ismail Azzaoui to Wolfsburg.

We've known this was coming for a while. Spurs youth player expert Windy tweeted this story a few days ago, and even Azzaoui had noted on his twitter that he had a "big decision" to make. Now Tottenham has made it official.

I'm super super sad about this transfer, as we've been following Azzaoui for a while now and he's a fantastic talent. We rated him #8 on our summer list of Tottenham Hotspur youth prospects for good reason: he's a dynamic, tricky attacker with bags of talent. We're not sure whey he decided to make the switch to Wolfsburg, but it's likely he saw more opportunities for him to break into the first team earlier in the Bundesliga than he did at White Hart Lane.

Good luck to Ismail! I'll be following his career with great interest.
