Always finding room for young players in his first team squad, regardless of age or experience, being loaned out by Mauricio Pochettino is effectively a snub for any Tottenham player. But that doesn’t necessarily mean it’s the end of their careers with the north London club – provided they can use the loan spell to prove the Argentine wrong.
Earlier this week, we looked at four players Tottenham have loaned out this season – Vincent Janssen, Cameron Carter-Vickers, Josh Onomah and Georges-Kevin N’Koudou – and then asked Spurs supporters to vote for which has the best chance of making an impact for the Lilywhites at first team level in 2018/19.
And the result of our poll was largely unanimous.
Perhaps because Toby Alderweireld’s potential departure will create an obvious void for him to fill, perhaps because he’s already a full international with the USA, perhaps because he’s shown decent form for Sheffield United and Ipswich in the Championship this season, Carter-Vickers took a whopping 88% of the vote.
Do you think the 20-year-old, who Transfermarkt value at £900k, is ready to provide cover for the likes of Jan Vertonghen and Davinson Sanchez, Tottenham fans? Let us know by commenting below…
