Quite a few young players were loaned out by Tottenham Hotspur during the summer transfer window, with many of them hoping to gain some experience and come back to challenge for a first-team spot in North London.

Football.London has given a lowdown on how all of them are getting on in their respective clubs so far this season.

They reveal that Ryan Sessegnon has now broken into the Hoffenheim first-team, starting their last two league games against Union Berlin and Wolfsburg after sitting out the first two Bundesliga games after arriving in Germany.

The defender was first given a chance to impress in the Europa League but was rested in their group stage clash against Slovan Liberec last Thursday, which seems to be a sign that he is now Sebastian Hoeness’ first choice at left-wing-back.

Oliver Skipp is another one who has made a terrific impression at Norwich City so far, with the midfielder already becoming a key part of the Canaries’ set up.

The England Under-21 international will be hoping to help Daniel Farke’s side win promotion and then come back to Spurs next season and compete for a starting berth.

However, things have not gone according to plan for Troy Parrott at Millwall after the youngster has only played 45 minutes of football for Gary Rowett’s side, having suffered injury issues.

The striker is currently part of Ireland’s Under-21 squad and will be hoping to make his first league start on his return from international duty.

Another player whose loan spell has been hampered by injury is Juan Foyth, with the Argentine having been sidelined the past few weeks with a muscular injury.

Meanwhile, the report reveals that Cameron Carter-Vickers is yet to make his debut for Bournemouth as he continues to build up his match fitness, while Shilow Tracey and Jack Roles have struggled for minutes at Shrewsbury Town and Burton Albion respectively.

One youngster who has had a better time of it in League One is TJ Eyoma, who is said to have already made 16 appearances for Lincon City, featuring at both right-back and centre-back.

Football.London has backed the 20-year-old to potentially challenge for a first-team spot at Tottenham in the not too distant future.

Meanwhile, striker Kazaiah Sterling is yet to find the back of the net for Southend United in eight appearances in all competitions and will be hoping his fortune soon changes in front of goal (transfermarkt).
