It was mixed fortunes for the Tottenham players out on loan over the last week, with Tanguy Ndombele and Napoli being crowned Serie A champions while Harry Winks was not able to prevent Sampdoria from going down.
Napoli wrapped up their first league title in 33 years last Thursday as their 1-1 draw at Udinese put them out of reach of their rivals for the Scudetto, with Ndombele playing all 90 minutes.
The Frenchman will have a title winner’s medal on his CV when his loan ends this summer, having made 30 league appearances for the Italian champions this season.
Another on-loan Spurs man Destiny Udogie also made an impact in that game, setting up the home side’s opener in the 13th minute, only for Victor Osimhen to equalise in the second half to seal the title win for Luciano Spalletti’s men.
It was contrasting emotions for another Tottenham midfielder as Winks’ Sampdoria side was finally relegated from Serie A on Monday after their 2-0 defeat.
Meanwhile, Bryan Gil got on the scoresheet in Sevilla’s 3-2 win over Espanyol last Thursday, with the winger turning home a loose ball from close range in the first half.
Djed Spence did not even make the matchday squad for Rennes’ 2-1 defeat at Nice while Joe Rodon was an unused substitute for the game.
Giovani Lo Celso also played no part in Villarreal’s 1-1 draw at Valencia while Sergio Reguilon got 18 minutes off the bench as Atletico Madrid thrashed Cadiz 5-1 last Wednesday.

Spence’s lack of game time over the last month following a solid start to his spell at Rennes, is worrying.
The right-back would be hoping to make a good impression on the new Spurs head coach during pre-season but as things stand, it looks likely that the club might loan him out again.
