Coady is one of several who’s been linked with a move to Spurs since Espirito Santo replaced in north London.

Romero’s arrival means that Santo now has five centre-backs at his disposal, including versatile young defender Japhet Tanganga, who can play anywhere across the back four.

And whilst Romero is facing a race against time to be fit for the start of the Premier League season this weekend, Hatfield doesn’t expect Conor to follow him through the door in N17.

He told This is Futbol:

“Spurs have strengthened in that area already. Do they want another centre-back? He’s a player that knows well and was heavily trusted by Nuno.

“I think with Spurs strengthening, and maybe looking slightly above Coady’s level, not saying he’s a bad player by any means. It might just be one that’s a non-starter.

“It wouldn’t have shocked me earlier in this window, but at this point it would surprise me.”
