A fourth player has returned to Tottenham Hotspur following the end of their loan spell.

Anthony Georgiou has become the latest loanee to head back to North London.

Georgiou joined Ipswich Town in August after signing a new contract with the Champions League finalists until 2021 with the initial loan agreement running until January (Spurs official).

Ipswich have revealed that an agreement was in place for the loan deal to be extended beyond January if agreed between all parties, however Spurs have made the decision to terminate the agreement due to a lack of regular first team football.

Georgiou made thirteen appearances in all competitions for the Tractor Boys, providing one assist but had struggled to break into the starting eleven with all of his Championship appearances coming from the bench (transfermarkt).

Jack Clarke (Leeds), Kaziah Sterling (Doncaster), Cameron Carter-Vickers (Stoke) have all had their respective loan spells terminated in the past week.

A statement on the official Ipswich site read: “Anthony Georgiou’s loan at Town has ended and he has gone back to Tottenham.

“The 22-year-old wideman arrived at Portman Road in August, with a deal in place to see him stay at the Club until January and with an option to see out the season with Blues if all parties agreed.

“Georgiou made his debut in the 2-1 win over AFC Wimbledon and went on to make 13 appearances for the Club but his games in the league all came as a substitute.

“Over the past two months he has only featured three times in League One and with Tottenham looking for their loan players to get regular first-team football, the Cyprus international has returned to White Hart Lane.”
