Tottenham Hotspur, along with the other 19 Premier League teams, have now finalized and submitted their squads for the first half of the 2016-17 Premier League season.

Moussa Sissoko, Geoges-Kevin N’Koudou, and Pau Lopez were the three deadline day acquisitions, and they will wear the #17, #14, and the #30 shirts, respectively.

You’ll notice that Tottenham only have a roster of 20 registered players, and of those 20 only six of them are considered “homegrown.” The Homegrown Players rule requires eight players who were trained by an English club for three years between the ages of 16-21, but ONLY if you want to register the full complement of 25 overage players.

Spurs have six overage players that are considered “homegrown” but have a whole bunch of underage players from club’s youth academy that could feature for them but don’t need to be registered (because they’re currently under 21). This is a young team, so the 25-player cap doesn’t really apply to them, and neither does the homegrown player restriction. And as players like Dele Alli and Josh Onomah age up, it will solve the homegrown player problem automatically. Make sense?
