Report: Portsmouth eye fresh loan for Spurs youngster Harvey White
Harvey White could be offered the chance to return to familiar surroundings this summer, with Football London reporting that Portsmouth would like to take the Spurs youngster on loan once again.
White spent the second-half of last season at Fratton Park. Unfortunately, it proved to be a mixed spell for the 19-year-old.
He only actually only completed 90 minutes on three occasions. And Pompey threw away a League One play-off spot on the final day of the campaign.
Nevertheless, it appears that White managed to make an impression.
According to Football London, Danny Cowley is keen to bring White back to Fratton Park this summer.
It is noted that he is likely to head out on loan once again. So perhaps, Spurs may decide that a return to the south coast would be a good move.
Harvey White should use Oliver Skipp as inspiration as Spurs loan potentially nears
White was praised at times during his loan spell. He demonstrated his versatility also, playing in several midfield roles.
But it does appear that he has some work to do to really catch the eye of his parent club.
However, it is not impossible – as Oliver Skipp has proved.
Skipp’s stock has surely risen thanks to his year with Norwich. He was outstanding as the Canaries won the Championship title.
Of course, it was easier for Skipp. Daniel Farke’s men are a superb side. And he was playing at a higher level.
But it does show White what a superb loan can do.
The starlet made his senior debut for Spurs last season. Cowley meanwhile, labelled him a coach’s dream.
So he obviously boasts serious potential.
And Portsmouth are seemingly hoping to provide him with the stage to take his game to that next level.
