Spurs’ Japhet Tanganga can follow in Harry Kane’s footsteps with loan move

Tottenham Hotspur could yet see movement to their squad before Friday’s domestic transfer deadline…

What’s the word?

Football.London believe four players could have a chance of leaving the club this week, one of which being young academy graduate Japhet Tanganga, who was handed his Premier League debut back in January.

The 21-year-old is yet to feature for Spurs this campaign and with three senior centre-backs ahead of him in the pecking order, he could be loaned out to garner some valuable game time.

Should Japhet Tanganga be sent out on loan before Friday?

Yes!

Yes!

No!

No!

His pathway at full-back is also blocked following the arrivals of both Matt Doherty and Sergio Reguilon, so a loan move could be suitable at this stage of his career.

The Harry Kane way

And perhaps the England youth international should do exactly that as both the player and the club could reap the rewards long-term – just look at Harry Kane now.

The Spurs talisman had to go out on loan four times, twice to the Championship, before he could cement his place down as a first-team regular.

Although Kane enjoyed these spells at an earlier age, the same can work out for Tanganga, who has plenty of years left before he even reaches his potential.

The young defender was rewarded with a new long-term contract on wages thought to be around £25k-per-week, after featuring a total of 13 times during his maiden campaign.

Jose Mourinho talking to the Tottenham players

Tottenham opened up their 2019/20 season in a 3-1 win against Aston Villa - but who scored the club's first goal of the season?

And Jose Mourinho is clearly a fan, praising him after his debut against Liverpool: “He played well. I think the kid has reason to be very happy with his level, not with the result obviously, but with his first game in the Premier League. It couldn’t be a bigger one and he did it amazingly. First on the right and then on the left, first Mane and then Salah, and I think he was fantastic so I don’t want to take any credit for that.”

Even Jurgen Klopp called him “very impressive”.

But to continue his meteoric rise in N17, he may well have to go out temporarily – even more so after links to Milan Skriniar all summer and recently, Joe Rodon.

He could follow in Kane’s footsteps to become the next homegrown legend at the club.

AND in other news, “Brainless” Spurs star’s international form surely a major cause for concern
