‘Consider his options’: £37k-a-week Tottenham man could leave the club in January, meeting planned
He’ll be eyeing a few incomings, but will know that there are some players who need to move on.
Conte has struggled to give opportunities to a number of youngsters in the squad.
Japhet Tanganga is another player who has barely featured since his future was up in the summer during the summer.
Italian outlet CalcioMercato reported last month that Spurs have already set an asking price for Tanganga if he does leave in January.
He’s not the only young defender who might be considering his future at Tottenham.
Since arriving in the summer from Middlesbrough, Djed Spence has barely had a look in under Conte.
He’s made three last-minute appearances in the Premier League, and one brief cameo in the Carabao Cup.
Jones now believes Spence could leave Spurs on loan in January, and has a meeting planned with his manager.

Speaking to Give Me Sport about the young full-back’s future, Jones said: “They’re going to have a chat about that soon. He will consider his options and what might be best for him.
“Beyond that, I think it is a bit too soon to be contemplating who else might come in.”
Conte was always going to struggle to give all three players the game time they wanted.
It’s hard to see the benefit of Spence spending another six months on the bench at Spurs.
Unless Conte promotes Spence up the pecking order, this season will be a wasted one for the England under-21 international.
Spence was given the opportunity to impress in a new position during the mid-season break on the left.
Spence will want reassurances that he’s made the right choice heading to north London in the summer.
