Tottenham ‘insider’ John Wenham has told Football Insider that the club will look to loan out young forward Dane Scarlett in the summer, with current rules preventing a move from happening this season. 

Scarlett, 17, has been in and around the first-team fold this season and has made three appearances for the side – all coming in the Europa Conference League. 

He recently went away with the England Under-19 side over the international break and scored a brace in a 4-0 win over Andorra. 

Although Scarlett is being exposed to life with the senior team, opportunities appear to be coming at a premium with the likes of Harry Kane and Heung-min Son unlikely to be displaced. 

While Spurs may be looking to secure a short-term move away for the young striker to gain regular game time, Wenham has revealed that the club are being prevented from doing so this season as they are unable to loan out second-year scholars. 

As such, he believes a move could come to fruition in the summer, as Spurs will need to wait until the conclusion of the campaign to begin exploring potential options. 

Speaking to Football Insider, Wenham said: “I think the plan with Dane is that he will stay with Tottenham this season. Because he is still a second-year professional, he can’t go out on loan yet [in January].

“Even though he has made some appearances for the first team, rules state he can’t go out on loan until next season. 

“I know a lot of people have been asking that question. He can go out from July 1 and that is probably something Tottenham will look to do.

“He’s another player who needs first-team minutes and he just isn’t getting that at the moment. He just needs to keep scoring, keep impressing and see what happens.”

Scarlett does need minutes and with important games approaching, it is difficult to see him getting many opportunities in the team. But being exposed to a first-team with so many excellent players is good for him and his development ahead of a likely loan next year.
