The Daily Mail have revealed that Tottenham Hotspur are willing to loan out goalkeeper Brandon Austin during the current transfer window.

The Hemel Hempstead-born goalkeeper, who was previously with Chelsea before joining the Spurs youth set up, put in a string of impressive displays for the development squad through the 2018/19 campaign.

Austin was called up to England’s Under-21 squad last year and penned a new contract with the club not too long after.

Although he has not made a senior appearance for the Lilywhites, the goalkeeper was named on the bench on multiple occasions last season while Hugo Lloris was sidelined through injury.

The 21-year-old spent the second half of last season on loan at Danish side Viborg, where he clocked up 14 appearances (transfermarkt.com).

The Daily Mail claim that Spurs are now ready to send Austin out again this season with Jose Mourinho is happy with the three senior goalkeeping options at his disposal following the arrival of Joe Hart.

It is said that the Lilywhites believe that the youngster will benefit from another loan spell, with a number of League One and Championship sides reportedly weighing up offers for him.

Spurs Web Opinion

If there is a genuine belief at the club that Austin can be a future first-team player, then loaning him out is the right step. At 21 years of age, he needs to be playing regularly and it is unlikely he will get even Europa League or Carabao Cup games at Spurs with Lloris, Gazzaniga and Hart ahead of him in the pecking order.
