Tottenham Hotspur have 10 players out on loan and most of them are youngsters hoping to gain experience.
But three players are a bit older and now need to be pushing for places in Mauricio Pochettino’s squad. Here are the three Tottenham loanees who face uncertainty when they return to the club this summer.
Carter-Vickers is currently on loan at Swansea City, where he has been in and out of the starting line-up.
The 7-cap USA international has played 28 games in all competitions, including 18 starts in the Championship.
Having spent the last two seasons in the second-tier, the 21-year-old needs to convince Pochettino he can step up – especially if Toby Alderweireld leaves – to save his Spurs future.
N’Koudou was sent on loan to Monaco in January and many felt that this was his last chance to prove he is Tottenham-quality.
But the former France under-21 winger has only played three matches with a combined total of 21 minutes to his name.
The 24-year-old’s time at Tottenham is surely up unless he can somehow turn things around in France.
Two years ago, Onomah was regarded as a top talent for the future by both Tottenham and England.
But the England under-21 attacking midfielder’s progress has stalled with two stop-start spells in the Championship.
After an indifferent campaign with Aston Villa, the 21-year-old has struggled with form and injuries at Sheffield Wednesday and does not look ready for Spurs at the moment.
