Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino will reportedly allow defender Serge Aurier to leave the club in January.
According to the Daily Mail, the right-back is available for a loan or permanent move away from Spurs.
The North London club coughed up £23million (BBC) to sign him in 2017 and he’s not quite hit the dizzy heights consistently that he showed at Paris Saint-Germain.
But offloading the 26-year-old now would be a strange decision and one that Pochettino should perform a U-turn on.
Spurs are still competing in four competitions this season and can’t afford to be reducing the quality of their squad, as they are only six points off the top of the Premier League and have the knockout rounds of the Champions League around the corner.
Aurier is great competition for Kieran Trippier at right-back, with not much to settle them when it comes down to it.
Emerging youngster Kyle Walker-Peters is another full-back option behind them that is capable, but he is being eased in by Pochettino.
Aurier returned to the Spurs team on Friday night in the 7-0 FA Cup third round win over Tranmere Rovers and he showed his qualities going forward.
The Ivory Coast international scored twice in the cup fixture and is now back after a groin injury, which is why fans should see the best of him moving forward if he stays.
