Tottenham have continued the overhaul of their recruitment operation with the departure of senior scout Brian Carey.

Head of recruitment Carey, who worked remotely and whose role was understood to be less grandiose than his title suggested, had been with Spurs for six years and follows technical performance director Steve Hitchen, who resigned in February, out of the club.

“We can confirm that Head of Recruitment Brian Carey has decided to leave his role following six years at the Club. We would like to thank Brian for his work and wish him well for the future,” Tottenham said in a brief statement on Wednesday.

Managing director Fabio Paratici is undertaking a thorough revamp of Tottenham’s scouting and recruitment teams and is close to appointing a new No2 to support him in running the football side of the club following Hitchen's exit.

Paratici, who had only worked in Italy before joining Spurs, including alongside Antonio Conte at Juventus, wants more specialist knowledge of the English market, although his proposed new deputy is understood to be from overseas.

Paratici and Conte have made two new additions at Tottenham so far, recruiting Dejan Kulusevski and Rodrigo Bentancur from Turin in January.

Paratici’s first summer window in charge saw the arrivals of the likes of Bryan Gil, Emerson Royal, Cristian Romero, Pierluigi Gollini and Pape Sarr.
