Tottenham are preparing to sell Federico Fazio – just 12 months after his arrival.

The central defender was one of Mauricio Pochettino’s first captures as Spurs manager when he arrived from Sevilla last year.

But he failed to convince in his first season and Pochettino has decided the Argentine is no longer required.

And Spurs are listening to offers for the 28-year-old ahead of the transfer deadline and expect the defender to depart.

West Bromwich and Lyon have both shown an interest in Fazio and will be encouraged by news.

Fazio played 31 times for Spurs last season, but didn’t make the bench for the defeat at Manchester United on Saturday.
