Report: Host of Premier League clubs want Spurs starlet Spence on loan

A host of Premier League and Championship clubs are interested in signing Djed Spence in January, with ESPN reporting that the wing-back could leave Tottenham Hotspur next month.

Spence would have likely always been aware that he was going to have to bide his time following his Spurs move in the summer. He went into the campaign having not yet played in the Premier League.

However, he would have surely expected to play a lot more than he has done thus far. The 22-year-old has only made a handful of appearances in the top-flight. And on each occasion, he has only been on the pitch for a handful of minutes.

His situation has been particularly intriguing. Antonio Conte does also have Emerson Royal and Matt Doherty available to him. And yet, Doherty has been working his way back to full fitness for much of this campaign.

Meanwhile, Royal has had a really tough time. He has struggled to silence his doubters in the Premier League. Nevertheless, the chance for Spence is yet to present itself.

Spurs fans will hope that Spence remains in the long-term plans in North London. But perhaps it would not be a shock to see him leave in January.

In fact, ESPN suggests that he could be one player who moves on loan in January. And it is claimed that a host of clubs in the top two tiers are interested in signing Spence.

Loaning Spence out could make a lot of sense. He needs game-time as he continues his development. And there is a chance that Tottenham may yet strengthen further at wing-back amid links with Pedro Porro.

Spence is an ‘unbelievable‘ talent. But it will not do anyone any favours for him to stick at Spurs if he is going to play so little.

So perhaps a loan move could be best for all parties.
