West London Sport have claimed that Queens Park Rangers have taken Tottenham Hotspur defender Jonathan Dinzeyi on trial with a view to a permanent contract, and he has hit the ground running.
Dinzeyi, 20, played for QPR’s Under-23 side on Monday night as the London side travelled to Coventry to take on the London-based club. Not only did he start and finish the match for QPR, but he scored the first in a 2-0 win.
The England Under-18 international has been a regular in Spurs’ Under-18 and second-string sides. At 20 years of age, though, he is likely to be on the lookout for a new side with the route into Jose Mourinho’s senior side completely blocked.

QPR have a very strong connection with Tottenham, with two players on loan from Spurs at Loftus Road in central midfielder Luke Amos. Jack Clarke has almost moved to QPR, having returned to Spurs from Leeds in January.
TBR’s view – Dinzeyi of the age where he needs senior football
Having played youth football and being in the reserves for all of his professional career, Dinzeyi needs to move on to a club where he is going to get regular game time in the senior side. Unfortunately at Spurs, that is not going to happen.
With Japhet Tanganga breaking into the senior side alongside Toby Alderweireld, Davinson Sanchez and Jan Vertonghen, Dinzeyi has no chances of getting a chance at Spurs. QPR would be an excellent move for the defender.
