Journalist, Dan Kilpatrick has revealed that Gedson Fernandes will likely be nothing more than a useful body this season for domestic cup games.
He also added that Tottenham are unlikely to pay the fee required to make Gedson’s transfer permanent come the end of the current season.
Fernandes became one of Jose Mourinho’s first signings at Spurs head coach back in January when he joined on an 18-month loan from Benfica.
It was reported at the time that Spurs had an option to buy the young Portuguese midfielder for £43m at the end of the loan spell (Sky Sports), although Dan Kilpatrick claimed that this number was actually £55m.
Fernandes has made just one appearance in the League Cup for Spurs this season and appeared just seven times in the Premier League in the 2019/20 campaign (TransferMarkt).
It appears that the 21-year-old has just one season to prove himself to Jose Mourinho if he hopes to earn a permanent move to Tottenham.
I think for now he is little more than a useful body for Europa League away games & perhaps the early rounds of the FA Cup. It’s fair to say Spurs are unlikely to pay £55m for him next summer as it stands…
