According to Sky Sports Transfer Centre (at 22:48 on November 30), Dilan Markanday could leave Tottenham Hotspur in January.
Markanday has been thriving for Spurs U23s in the Premier League 2 this season, tallying an impressive 10 goals and four assists in 11 appearances.
The Spurs academy starlet’s impressive run of form saw him pick up the Premier League 2 Player of the Month award for October and the 20-year-old also made his senior debut for Tottenham in the Europa Conference League clash against Vitesse Arnhem.
Football League World revealed last week that four different Championship clubs had expressed an interest in signing the youngster on loan in January.
However, Sky Sports have now revealed that Markanday, who has just six months left on his contract, could be in line for a permanent exit from Spurs when the transfer window reopens.
It is revealed that while Tottenham would prefer the youngster to sign a new contract and go out on loan, the likes of Bournemouth, Stoke and Nottingham Forest are ready to promise the youngster regular first-team football.
While Markanday’s long-term desire is to play for the Spurs first-team, it is explained that the youngster could be tempted by a move to the Championship in search of regular first-team football.

Spurs should be doing everything in their power to convince Markanday to sign a new deal. Perhaps handing him a few opportunities in the FA Cup and the Europa Conference League over the coming weeks and months would help persuade the youngster to stay.
