Josh Onomah in action for Tottenham.

7 former Tottenham players we can’t believe are currently free agents

Tottenham have had some great players throughout the years, but you might be surprised to find out that these seven former stars currently find themselves without a club.

It only takes one bad injury or a loss of form to end up on the free agents market and plenty of high-profile names currently find themselves without a contract heading into January.

We’ve taken a closer look at Tottenham and have found seven former players who are currently free agents.

Josh Onomah

Onomah was highly rated in his early days with Tottenham and the midfielder went on to make 32 appearances for the club under Mauricio Pochettino.

He then made the switch to Fulham in 2019 and he played a key role in their promotion from the Championship. Technically, Onomah has always been a superb footballer, but his fitness record of late has been his undoing.

The 26-year-old barely featured during his final season with Fulham and he didn’t exactly set the world alight while on a short-term contract with Preston North End. He was most recently training with Stoke City but was not offered a professional deal.

Danny Rose

While the former Tottenham full-back has taken up some punditry roles of late, he’s not yet announced his retirement and is still on the lookout for his next club.

Rose has struggled with injuries in his later years and has been without a club since leaving Watford last year. In March, the defender was spotted training with National League side York City, but a contract didn’t follow.

It only seems like yesterday that Rose made his Tottenham debut against Arsenal and smashed one into the top corner.

Steven Caulker

Caulker’s football career has been absolutely wild. The 31-year-old started his career at Tottenham and has played for 14 different clubs in several different countries throughout his playing days.

The Sierra Leone international most recently played for Wigan Athletic in the Championship, but left the club upon their relegation to League One. As things stand, Caulker is without a club and is seeking his next opportunity.

Luke Amos

The holding midfielder only made one senior appearance for Spurs which came in the 2018–19 season. Having sensed his first-team opportunities would be limited in north London, he made the move to QPR in 2020.

While the 28-year-old did showcase some real glimpses of talent with QPR, injuries have massively hampered his career progression. He missed the majority of his debut season with an ACL injury and only started eight league games in his final season with the club.

The midfielder spent the summer on trial with League One outfit Reading, although a contract wasn’t finalised and he still finds himself on the free agent market.

Fraizer Campbell

Campbell spent one year on loan with Spurs in 2008–09 and scored three goals in 22 matches. The striker is perhaps most known for his spells with Sunderland, Crystal Palace and Hull City where he spent his peak years.

At 36 years old, Campbell has been without a club since his release from Huddersfield Town last year and he has admitted that he has enjoyed the time he has spent away from the game.

“I’ve not got a club. I was hoping to maybe continue this season but nothing’s come about, so I’m just enjoying [doing media work] and spending more time with my kids. I’ll see what comes up,” the striker told Hull Live in January.

“I’m enjoying it. I thought I’d miss it more than I have. I’m doing my ironing every Tuesday, stuff like that, getting a bit of routine into my schedule. It’s nice!”

Iago Falque

Harry Redknapp brought Falque to the club in 2011, but he didn’t exactly pull up many trees. During his two years with the club, the Spanish forward only five appearances and failed to score in any of them.

The 33-year-old spent the majority of his career in Italy, with his most prolific spell coming for Torino. He most recently played for Colombian outfit America de Cali, but had his contract terminated by mutual agreement in the summer.

J’Neil Bennett

Bennett rose through the ranks at Tottenham as a youngster and went on to make one senior appearance for the club in 2021-22 under Nuno Espirito Santo.

The following year, Brentford signed the winger for their B team, although he only lasted one season before he was let go. In November, Bennett was spotted training with League Two outfit Crewe Alexandra, although he is yet to be offered a contract.
