According to a report by Football Insider, Daniel Levy will rebuff any bids to sign Dele Alli in January but could consider sending him out on loan.
Alli has become a fringe figure in Jose Mourinho’s squad and faces an uphill battle to get back into the first-team picture given how well Tottenham are playing this season.
The Athletic’s David Ornstein revealed last month that Levy has a soft spot for the midfielder and would be reluctant to sell him despite the former MK Dons man not being a regular part of Mourinho’s plans (Ask Ornstein podcast).
Football.London’s Alasdair Gold suggested earlier this week that the 24-year-old is unlikely to leave the club in January since no club are likely to be in a position to pay the kind of asking price that would tempt Spurs to sell.
Football Insider claim that Levy will reject any offers for the England international next month since he still believes he can turn his fortunes around and prove an asset for Spurs in the future.
However, the Tottenham chairman is said to be aware that Alli’s value has dropped due to his lack of game time this season and would instead be open to allowing him to leave on loan in order to get his career back on track.
