Tottenham Hotspur have an abundance of talented young players within their academy system, however, there is only so much they can prove within the youth ranks.
At a certain point, they need to start getting first-team football under their belts in order to progress as a player.
So, let’s take a look at the five academy players Spurs should loan out next year:
Troy Parrott –
At the very best, Parrott will get the odd minute here and there next season. I want to see how he can do for a full campaign at a leading League One side. Let’s give the lad a chance to shine in a consistent first team, then make a decision on whether he is ready to make the leap at Spurs.
Oliver Skipp –
Skipp has been stuck in limbo for two seasons now. He is clearly good enough to eventually make the jump into the Spurs team, but he is wasting his time on the bench and in the reserves. Give him a chance in a low-level Premier League side or top Championship team to prove his worth.
Jack Clarke –
Two extremely disappointing loan spells for Clarke this season, despite Spurs paying all that money for him in the summer. I think the club needs to set their sights lower next season and send him to League One rather than the Championship. If Clarke is not prepared to graft and train hard, then he simply won’t make it.
Jack Roles –
He has enjoyed a rather successful loan spell this season and I would like to see him get one more under his belt before being given a crack in the Spurs set-up. Perhaps send him to a higher club this time around, somewhere in the Championship.
Malachi Fagan-Walcott –
With Japhet Tanganga having made the leap from academy to first-team, there is unlikely to be room for Tottenham’s latest debutant to earn many minutes next season. Perhaps the club should bite the bullet early and send the youngster out on loan somewhere to prove himself.
