Tottenham Hotspur half-term loan report: Onomah and Edwards must improve or face the scrapheap
As the New Year approaches fast we take a look at how the loan players have been getting on away from Tottenham Hotspur.
Josh Onomah – Sheffield Wednesday
It has not been ideal for the England under-21 international at Hillsborough. His performances, much like they were at Aston Villa last term, have been inconsistent.
He was publicly lambasted by Owls boss Jos Luhukay recently for a poor display and will be hoping for better in 2019.
Half-term grade: D
Cameron Carter-Vickers – Swansea City
The American has had to fight for first-team football at the Liberty Stadium. With the likes of Joe Rodon and Mike van der Hoorn for competition that makes sense.
But he has established himself as an important member of the Swansea squad and that of the US national team.
Half-term grade: B-
Marcus Edwards – Excelsior
The Lionel Messi comparisons have never gone away from this young man. However, a woeful loan spell at Norwich City last term lowered his stock.
This summer he went abroad. So how is he doing in Holland?
He has recently been dropped to the bench in Rotterdam. It has certainly not been the best loan move so far and the talented winger will need to improve fast.
Half-term grade: C-
Connor Ogilvie – Gillingham
The left-back is back at Gillingham, where he had a good loan spell last term.
He remains an important member of the first-team squad but has been in-and-out of the starting line-up. A decent spell but not enough to suggest a Tottenham future.
Half-term grade: C+
Samuel Shashoua – Atletico Baleares
It’s been a good spell in the Spanish third-tier for the 19-year-old. A regular starter he has chipped in with goals and assists this term. Tottenham fans should keep an eye on him.
Half-term grade: B+
