Report: Tottenham Hotspur no longer planning to loan out 19-year-old youngster, he's expected to stay with first-team

Tottenham Hotspur are no longer planning to loan out Pape Matar Sarr this summer and he’s expected to stay with the first-team, according to the Athletic

Reports suggested that Italian outfit Cremonese were confident they could get a deal over the line to bring Sarr in on a loan deal this summer

But Tottenham were hesitant to let the 19-year-old go out on loan and now it seems he’s set to stay with the first-team. 

Sarr was brought to Spurs last summer from FC Metz and then loaned back to the Ligue 1 outfit for the season.

The midfielder has a big future ahead of him and enjoyed a successful spell in France during the last campaign. 

The Senegalese international seemed set to head back out on loan but now Spurs have seemingly decided to keep hold of him. 

Tottenham no longer planning to loan out Sarr

Sarr is now expected to stay at Tottenham beyond tomorrow’s deadline, as stated in the Athletic’s Live blog (10:33am)

The youngster has been linked with a loan move away from the club throughout the window but now looks set to stay with Antonio Conte’s men.

Spurs are also expected to keep hold of Japhet Tanganga, despite apparent interest from Nottingham Forest. 

But now Tottenham want to keep hold of both players, although the Athletic notes that the situation could change before the deadline.

Sarr was handed his debut for Spurs during pre-season and Conte has said the player has ‘great potential’

It seems bizarre that Spurs want to keep hold of Sarr when they have a wealth of options in central midfield. 

Conte has the likes of Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg, Rodrigo Bentancur, Oliver Skipp and Yves Bissouma to choose from. 

But clearly the Spurs boss must feel he needs extra depth ahead of a season packed with fixtures.
