Paul Viner, FD and company secretary, left the company by ‘mutual agreement’ the club’s board announced yesterday.

A source within the club said Viner, an ICAEW-qualified accountant, had left after not seeing ‘eye-to-eye’ with chairman Daniel Levy.

But according to a spokesman for the club, Viner had departed the club ‘amicably’ and a statement on the club’s website read: ‘We would like to take this opportunity to thank Paul and wish him all the best in his future career.’

Andrew Fearn, senior group financial controller has taken over from Viner and will report directly to the board.

AIM-listed Spurs are due to publish their annual results later this month.
