According to Sports Mole, Kazaiah Sterling has returned to Tottenham Hotspur after the end of his loan spell with Southend United.
The striker moved to Southend in October but only managed to score once in 12 appearances for the League Two club (transfermakrt.com). Even his solitary goal came as a consolation in the Shrimpers 6-1 thrashing at Colchester.
Half of the striker’s appearances came off the bench as a groin injury restricted his availability towards the end of his time at the club.
The Southend Echo reported last month that Sterling had returned to Spurs for treatment on his groin injury but was expected to return to Mark Molesley’s side.
However, Sports Mole have now reported that the 22-year-old could not return to action through the festive period due to the injury and his loan spell has now come to an end.
Sterling had previously failed to make much of an impact during his spells at Sunderland and Doncaster Rovers and Leyton Orient.
Spurs Web Opinion
At 22 years of age, it is time that Tottenham move Sterling on permanently. I suspect the club were hoping that he would score a few goals at Southend, which could, in turn, increase his market value but that has not come to pass. I would not surprised if Sterling is released at the end of the season.
