According to a report in Football.London, Japhet Tanganga is one of three Tottenham Hotspur players who could leave the club before the October 16 domestic transfer deadline.

Tanganga won several admirers after he broke into the Spurs team last season and looked as though he was on his way to becoming a regular in the side before the pandemic brought football to a grinding halt.

A back stress fracture sidelined him after the restart last season as well as the first few matches at the start of the current campaign.

However, Tanganga did regain his fitness in time to win his first start of the campaign in the Carabao Cup clash against Chelsea last week.

Football.London now reveal that Spurs could decide to loan Tanganga, as well as young left-back Dennis Cirkin, to Championship clubs in a search for regular first-team football.

The report also claims that the Lilywhites could let Paulo Gazzaniga go before October 16 after his deadline day move to Everton fell through.

If we are to bring Joe Rodon in, one can understand the logic behind loaning Tanganga out. However, after the promise he showed last season, one would have thought that he earned a Premier League loan rather than dropping down to the Championship. Curiously, this report does not mention Cameron Carter-Vickers as one of the players likely to leave. With the USA international having less than 12 months to run on his contract, he is almost certainly guaranteed to be on his way out as well before October 16.
