Opinion: The five players Spurs should look to loan out in January for more game time

Tottenham Hotspur have a very talented first-team squad at the moment, which is leaving little room for a number of the youngsters to earn some minutes on the pitch.

For example, Japhet Tanganga would have to displace Vertonghen, Alderweireld, Sanchez and Foyth to earn a spot. Skipp would have to be chosen ahead of Winks, Dier, Sissoko, and the record signing Ndombele.

So, here are my five Spurs players who should be loaned out for more game time in January:

Oliver Skipp – 

This lad has to come at the top of my list. We have seen enough of him to know he is a real talent, and he looks impressive whenever he is given the nod. However, this does not happen enough. He now needs to show us what he can do week in week out, and the only way to do that is to loan him to a low Premier League or Championship club.

Troy Parrott – 

This lad is wasted in the travelling squad, not getting any competitive football. He is also far too good for the U23s. Levy must now look to shift him out to a low Championship or good level League One side in order to get him some experience for the next six months.

Japhet Tanganga – 

This one is a little trickier, as Spurs must first sign Tanganga up to a new contract before loaning him out. Having said that, I think that both of these decisions are no-brainers. He looks to have the qualities needed for a top-class centre-back, we just need to see that week in week out.

Jack Clarke – 

He has been recalled from his Leeds nightmare, but there is no chance he will get minutes in the Spurs first-team at the moment. Find another Championship club who will definitely start him every week and see what he can do.

Jack Roles – 

His loan period is supposed to come to an end at Cambridge in January, but an extended move is all but guaranteed. Roles is flourishing at the moment, and Levy would be silly to halt that progress.
