Football.London’s Alasdair Gold has provided an update on how Tottenham’s loanees have been getting on over the past couple of weeks away from their parent club.
Gold explains in the article that Spurs decided against sending too many players out on loan over the summer since the club wanted to hand some of their academy starlets game time in the Europa Conference League.
So, the Lilywhites only have seven players out on loan at the moment, a considerably lower number than last season.
The report reveals that Pape Matar Sarr, who was loaned back to Metz after signing for Spurs in the final week of the summer transfer window, returned to France from the international break to play ninety minutes in his club’s 2-0 loss at home to Troyes.
Interestingly, it is revealed that the teenager featured as a left-winger as opposed to his more favoured central midfield role.
Cameron Carter-Vickers had a debut to remember for Celtic as the centre-back helped the Scottish giants keep a clean sheet against Ross County and also netted the opener with a deflected effort as the Bhoys emerged 3-0 winners.
Troy Parrott continued his impressive start to the season for MK Dons, putting in a lively display upfront in their 1-0 win over Portsmouth.
MK Citizen wrote about the Spurs man’s display: “Could have had two or three goals to his name in the first half but was denied every time by keeper Bazunu. Always a threat, loved being on the ball and taking players on.”
Additionally, Football.London revealed that J’Neil Bennet made his League One debut in Crewe Alexandra’s 1-1 draw with Shrewsbury while Kion Etete and Jamie Bowden both featured in losses for Northampton Town and Oldham Athletic respectively.
Finally, goalkeeper Alfie Whiteman made his second appearance for since joining Swedish side Degerfors IF, who lost 4-1 at home to Kalmar FF.
Spurs Web Opinion
I believe the club made the right call in not loaning out the likes Jack Clarke, Dane Scarlett and Ryan Sessegnon as the Europa Conference League group stage is a good oppurtunity for these youngsters to impress. I would expect these players to be loaned out to January as one would not expect them to feature much in the knockout stages.
