Spurs announce another centre-back has left the club on a permanent deal

Tottenham Hotspur’s activity in the transfer market is not over yet, as the club has today confirmed the departure of Maksim Paskotsi. The youngster has now joined Grasshopper Club Zurich on a permanent transfer.

Paskotsi joined the Tottenham youth setup back in 2020 after turning out for FC Flora Tallinn back in his native Estonia. He has previously trained with both the youth sides for Kalev and SK Everest.

The defender has made one appearance for the Tottenham senior team, though only for three minutes (Transfermarkt). Paskotsi was a regular for the Spurs development squad and U18 side, but never quite managed to break into the first-team squad.

While he may not have had his breakthrough at club level, Paskotsi does have 18 caps to his name for Estonia, having made his debut at the age of 18 (Transfermarkt).

Paskotsi leaves Spurs on a permanent deal

Now that it has been revealed that the 20-year-old is leaving Spurs to join Grasshopper Club Zurich in Switzerland, Paskotsi will have the opportunity to play regular football.

The statement describes Paskotsi’s prior association with the team and offers best wishes for the future. Regarding if a fee was associated with the switch, nothing is known.

When it came to the path to the Spurs first team under Ange Postecoglou, Paskotsi was probably behind both recent additions Ashley Phillips and Alfie Dorrington.

It is believed that the young player has chosen to find more consistent first-team playing with his new club because his international hopes are on the line.

This decision makes sense for everyone since, despite his limited engagement with the first team, Maksim Paskotsi was unlikely to ever become a regular starter for Spurs. The goal is for him to succeed in Switzerland and advance in his club and national careers.
