Report: Two PL clubs previously showed interest in taking Spurs man on loan

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.

SpursWeb Opinion 

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.
