Tottenham Hotspur recently decided to recall the likes of Jack Clarke, Cameron Carter-Vickers, and Anthony Georgiou from their respective loan moves.

However, Spurs still have a number of promising youngsters out on loan at lower clubs, including 20-year-old Jack Roles at Cambridge United.

The youngster has already played 19 games for Cambridge during the first half of the season, scoring five goals in this time (Cambridgeshire Live).

Roles also picked up the League Two player of the month award and the goal of the month award for October.

However, Roles’ initial loan agreement was only set to see him stay at Cambridge until January, although he has been so impressive that head coach Colin Calderwood wants to keep him on.

Calderwood claims that all three parties, Cambridge, Roles, and Spurs, are in agreement about the deal that would extend Jack’s loan spell.

Discussions have apparently already started and Cambridge are hopeful of reaching a positive conclusion.

Calderwood said (Cambridgeshire Live): “At the minute all parties seem to agree – Jack, Tottenham and ourselves, so we’re very, very hopeful.

“It’s next week that the loan period ends. Discussions have started already and we’re really just wanting to dot the I’s and cross the T’s on it and we’re very hopeful.

“Paul Brush was here [at the Abbey for the Morecambe game] and he looks after a lot of the loan signings at Tottenham, so it’s positive.

“We’ll keep our fingers crossed, because you just never know when it’s a loan or a transfer.”

“You can see his quality, you can see he’s developing, you can see there’s more power coming into his game.

“I think he’s been able to work at a different tempo [compared to when he arrived].

“It was an interesting game for him [against Morecambe]. Not one that will live in his memory, but it’s the type of game when [his involvement] helped us.”
