Fabrizio Romano has revealed that Spurs have agreed a loan deal with Valencia for Bryan Gil, but the season-long loan will not include any buy option.
The journalist reports that the 21-year-old will move back to La Liga for the 2022/23 season on a simple loan, without any obligation or option for a permanent deal.
Antonio Conte said in his press conference this week that a new player would be signed if Tottenham decided to shift any of their existing first-team squad members (Football.London).
The Athletic then reinforced that Spurs were expected to invest in a new midfielder to replace Gil, who was set to join Valencia on loan. The report suggested Spurs would decide between a winger or a number ten to fill the void in their squad.
Gil enjoyed a promising short stint at Valencia on loan during the second half of last season, and without the inclusion of an option to buy, it appears Spurs want to see what he can do across a full campaign with regular minutes.
Valencia are set to complete the agreement with Tottenham for Bryan Gil on loan until June 2023. No buy option clause discussed, as of now – simple loan. 🚨⚪️ #THFC
It will be completed soon – one more loan deal after Gio Lo Celso [no buy option] and Ndombele [€30m buy option]. pic.twitter.com/AKvZC4RG2s

Spurs Web Opinion:
This feels like the best option for Spurs. I was worried that we would have another Juan Foyth situation where Gil would end up thriving on loan and leaving for a low fee. At least this way Tottenham and Conte can judge Gil on a season full of football.
