Premier League sides Burnley and Southampton both previously showed interest in signing Tottenham Hotspur’s Japhet Tanganga on loan (Sky Sports).

The 22-year-old defender has also attracted interest from Europe as Turkish side Galatasaray have made a loan offer but Spurs would prefer him to stay in England (Football London).

Tanganga has made 24 appearances in a Tottenham shirt since making his debut in 2019 but he only played 488 minutes in the Premier League last season (Transfermarkt).

Various injuries have stalled Tanganga’s chances of consistent first-team minutes. He picked up three injuries last campaign: missing 19 games of Tottenham’s long season.

Tottenham are going through a big re-shuffle, with a lot of departures and arrivals expected amid Fabio Paratici being appointed as new managing director of football (BBC).

Toby Alderweirld, Juan Foyth, and Erik Lamela are a few first-team members to have already left while Troy Parrott has been sent out on loan to League 1 side MK Dons.

Tanganga going out on loan is probably the best thing for his development. But with Tottenham’s defence: can they afford to let any sort of defender leave?

He is 22 now so the next development in his career has to be one that is progress in a similar fashion to Oliver Skipp.
