Argentine journalist Uriel Iugt has revealed that Tottenham’s new signing Alejo Veliz could be loaned out before the transfer window slams shut.
Veliz is seen as one of the most exciting young attacking prospects in Argentine football, with the teenager finding the back of the net 11 times in 23 league appearances for Rosario Central this season prior to his move to the Lilywhites.
According to various sources, Spurs saw off competition from several European sides to land the centre-forward this summer (Fabrizio Romano – Here We Go Podcast).
However, Tottenham see the 19-year-old as one for the future rather than as a finished product, with Ange Postecoglou revealing earlier this month that the youngster might not get too many minutes during the first part of the campaign (Football.London).
Loan move on the cards for Alejo Veliz at Spurs
Iugt has now taken to social media to state that although Veliz has not made the matchday squad for Tottenham so far, the striker wants to stay and fight for his place at the North London club this season.
However, the journalist added that the Argentina Under-20 international’s situation remains ‘uncertain’ and that a late loan move to another European club cannot be ruled out.

👉🏻 La idea del jugador es quedarse a pelear un puesto, más allá de que todavía no formó parte de una convocatoria.

I suspect Postecoglou might want Veliz to stay at Tottenham and train with the first-team stars at the club during the first half of the campaign so that he gets used to the team’s current style of play.
Perhaps Spurs will look to loan the youngster out to a Championship side for the second part of the season.
