There were quite a few players who left Tottenham on loan in January in search of more first-team opportunities including the likes of Danny Rose and Kyle Walker-Peters.
Here’s a look at how the players are doing after leaving North London temporarily until the end of the current campaign.
Rose hasn’t had a great start to life in Newcastle as he is yet to win a game since arriving at the club. After coming on as a replacement in the 0-0 draw against Norwich, Rose started for the Magpies against Arsenal and Crystal Palace with both games ending in defeat for Steve Bruce’s side.
The full-back hardly covered himself in glory in either game and was replaced by Matt Ritchie in the 71st minute in Saturday’s 1-0 loss at Selhurst Park when the away team went in search of an equaliser.
Kyle Walker-Peters was thrown straight into the starting line up for Southampton’s clash against Burnley just a few days after signing for the Saints.
The defender looked a little rusty when Ralph Hasenhuttl’s side were beaten 2-1 at home in the England international’s debut game for the club.
Football.London have revealed that the 22-year-old missed Southampton’s 2-0 win over Aston Villa on the weekend due to a calf injury.
While Clarke is certainly getting more opportunities at QPR than he did at Leeds United during the first half of the season, he still hasn’t managed to establish himself as a regular for the Championship side.
The pacey winger has made four appearances in all competitions for the Mark Warburton’s side so far, after being named in the starting elven on just one occasion (transfermarkt).
Clarke will be hoping that he establish himself in the side in the coming weeks and months and show the kind of form he did for Leeds last season.
Clarke’s QPR teammate Luke Amos has had a mixed season in terms of performances but he will be pleased to have got and got his career on track after recovering from a nasty knee injury in 2018.
Football.London reveals that Anthony Georgiou and Timothy Eyoma are still waiting to make their debuts for Bolton and Lincoln respectively, while Jack Roles and George Marsh continue to play an important role for Cambridge United and Leyton Orient.
They also report that the likes of Kazaiah Sterling, Cameron Cater-Vickers, Brandon Austin, Armando Shashoua and Shilow Tracey have been able to get some valuable minutes under their belt in the past few weeks.

I am pleased that Jose has changed the approach we had under Pochettino whereby talented young players remained and trained at the club rather than leaving on loan. These youngsters need to have a taste of competitive football as early as they can as that will fast forward their development.
