Destiny Udogie has admitted that it is an unusual season for him at Udinese now that he is owned by Tottenham but declared his desire to give his all at the Dacia Arena over the course of the campaign.

Udogie has carried on from where he left off towards the end of last season, proving a potent threat down Udinese’s left-hand side.

The 19-year-old opened the scoring in the club’s 4-0 thrashing of AS Roma on Sunday – a result which took Andrea Sottil’s side above the Giallorossi into fourth place in the Serie A table.

It was Udogie’s second goal of the season in just four league games, and the youngster is already starting to seem like a bargain signing for the North London club.

Speaking after the win over Jose Mourinho’s men, the left wing-back admitted that his situation is now different compared to last season but he expressed his desire to keep improving as a player.

Udogie told the print edition of Corriere dello Sport (05/09/22 – as relayed by Sport Witness): “No, there have been no changes. We knew we could put Roma in trouble by acting as we always did during the match.

“As far as I’m concerned, I know it’s an unusual season, even if I’m owned by Tottenham, I’m stimulated, I must always do well, I have to improve.”

Sometimes when young players make a big move, they can let the transfer get to their heads but it looks like Udogie has his head screwed on, and is continuing to do the things that got him to Spurs in the first place. The youngster’s value could potentially skyrocket by the end of this season.
