7. David Jenkins

David Jenkins was part of the swap-deal with Jimmy Robertson, but being one of the players who played for Arsenal and Tottenham is the only list he'll likely be involved in, since his career didn't take off nearly half as much as he would've anticipated, coming through the Arsenal youth system at the time.

8. Steve Walford

Moving into the late 70s now, where Steve Walford became the eigth in the list of players who played for Arsenal and Tottenham. He signed FOR Arsenal FROM Spurs in 1977 and never looked back, as he made 77 appearances for the Gunners. In fact, Walford represented three different London rivals, as he moved to West Ham later in his career.

9. Willie Young

Willie Young is one of the more recognisable names on this list, as he made the switch from Tottenham to Arsenal at the same time as Walford. The physically advanced centre back soon became a regular at Arsenal and during his four-year spell at Highbury, made 170 league appearances, scoring 11 goals. Not bad for a defender, eh?
