Tottenham Hotspur have received an approach from Galatasaray over a potential loan deal for Japhet Tanganga, according to The Telegraph’s Mike McGrath.
The North Londoners are now reported to be weighing up the offer to decide whether the prospect of regular first-team football at the Turkish giants would benefit the 22-year-old.
Tanganga returned to action last week against Colchester United after almost eight weeks out through injury, having admitted that had a tough previous campaign on the sidelines.
The academy graduate was limited to just 13 appearances in all competitions last season (transfermarkt).
Nuno Espirito Santo named Tanganga in his starting eleven for last night’s 3-1 friendly win at MK Dons, where he continued to build his match fitness with 86 minutes under his belt after being replaced late in the game by Fagan-Walcott.
Tanganga has recently admitted his desire to play at centre-half this season after predominantly featuring under Jose Mourinho as a right-back (Football.London).

Tanganga has had a tough twelve months with injury problems which have hampered his development following his impressive start to life as a Spurs first-teamer.
Having lost Toby Alderweireld and Juan Foyth, along with question marks over the future of Serge Aurier, it could prove to be risky to allow another defender to head out on loan.
A lot will likely depend on whether Fabio Paratici can land Cristian Romero or another central defender, however, we still need cover on the right if the club cash in on Aurier, who is out of contract at the end of the season.
