Tottenham Hotspur youngster Anthony Georgiou has officially joined Bolton Wanderers on loan until the end of the season.
The 22-year-old is heading back to League One after spending the first half of 2019/20 at Ipswich Town.
Georgiou – a full Cyprus international – played 13 times for the Tractor Boys, only three of which were starts that all came in cup competitions.
Georgiou has only ever made one appearance for the Spurs first-team – which came as a substitute in the Champions League against APOEL Nicosia in 2017.
The left-winger will be hoping to give a good account of himself at Bolton, who are rock bottom of England’s third tier and 20 points adrift of safety.
The club are in a world of trouble and were given a suspended five-point deduction in November for failing to fulfill their fixtures.
It’s looking as though the club will drop into League Two come May unless there is a drastic turnaround.
TBR’s view – Last chance saloon for Georgiou
Surely Georgiou surely has one last opportunity to prove himself he can have some involvement with the Spurs first-team going forwards – that’s if this isn’t just a move designed to put him in the shop window.
Georgiou hasn’t really looked close to making an impact for the first-team and at the age of 22 that is somewhat worrying.
The club have just signed Steven Bergwijn and could look to integrate youngster Jack Clarke for the 2020/21 season, so Georgiou needs a barnstorming six months if he is to be given any chance next year.
