Some Spurs fans on social media are puzzled as to why Tottenham have decided to loan out striker Kazaiah Sterling rather than selling him permanently.
Spurs confirmed on Friday that the 21-year-old striker had joined Southend United on loan until January.
Sterling, who came through the Spurs academy, has only made two first-team appearances for the Lilywhites so far.
He failed to make the expected impact during previous loan spells at Sunderland and Doncaster Rovers, with his spell with the latter being hampered by injury (transfermarkt.com).
The youngster was then loaned to Leyton Orient in the second half of last season but returned to North London without having made a single appearance for the O’s after the suspension of League Two football due to the Coronavirus pandemic.
Sterling will be hoping to make a much bigger impact at Southend this time around but some Spurs fans do not understand why the club did not sell the striker permanently.
In fact, a few admitted that they did not even realise Sterling was still on Tottenham’s books.
Sterling made his Southend debut in yesterday’s 2-2 draw against Exeter and helped his earn a penalty when he was brought down inside the box.
Unfortunate with injuries recently, but good luck Kazaiah with your loan move to Southend United. 👏

Spurs Web Opinion
Sterling has been extremely unlucky with injuries over the past few years. While it is clear that he is not going to make it at Spurs, the club are clearly trying to put in the shop window by sending him out on loan. They are likely hoping that he scores a few goals at Southend, which could in turn increase his value in the transfer market.
