Football London have claimed that Tottenham Hotspur are ready to sanction the permanent exit of 23-year-old winger Anthony Georgiou this month – with a move to his home country of Cyprus on the cards.
Georgiou has spent eight years at Tottenham since joining the North London side from Watford in 2013 – aged just 15. However, he has failed to add to the single senior Spurs appearance he made in September 2017.
Mauricio Pochettino handed him a late substitute appearance against APOEL Nicosia in the Champions League, a match which Spurs won 3-0. But he has failed to build on that, instead playing 46 times for the Under-23 side.
He has also gone on loan three times, to Bolton, Ipswich Town and Spanish side Atletico Levante. But Football London claim his contract is ending in the summer – and a permanent exit to Limassol is expected this week.
TBR’s view – Move is best for Georgiou
At 23, Georgiou has probably remained on Tottenham’s books for a year or two more than he needed. The winger, who can also play as a left-back, needs game time and a permanent exit will surely guarantee that.
A seven-time Cyprus international, returning to his home country with Limassol will give him the chance to enhance his career – and even impress in Europe. Perhaps some time in the future he could return to the big leagues.
