Alasdair Gold has been speaking on the latest edition of his YouTube show about all things Tottenham Hotspur after Spurs drew 1-1 with Crystal Palace.

How well can you remember Spurs' season so far? 1. Who is Spurs' top scorer in all competitions so far this season?

One topic that Gold spent some time on was the future of Dele Alli amid talk that he could be allowed to leave the club in the January transfer window.

The 24-year-old actually came off the bench for five minutes against Palace, just his third appearance in the league all season, and it looks like Spurs could be prepared to let Alli leave in January.

He said: (29:08) “I understand that if his situation by next month hasn’t changed then, Spurs will have discussions about what happens next for him.

“I think [there are] a lot of people within that club that don’t want to see him leave permanently.

“The issue is [that] permanently; there is a big fee. He’s 24-years-old, we know how good he can be [and] Daniel Levy knows how good he can be.

“So, he’s not going to be someone that anyone is going to get for cheap.

“Then you look at the next thing, which is a loan move just to get his confidence back, get his minutes up, and get his mojo back.

“The other issue with that is you don’t want to give him to a rival [but] he deserves a certain level of team, and then you start looking abroad and is that good for him?”

Do you want to see Alli leave on loan?

No, he should stay

Yes, time to go

TIF Thoughts on Alli’s situation…

Alli has barely featured for Spurs this season, especially in the Premier League, appearing for just 71 minutes and earning an average rating of 6.18 for those minutes.

So, it is clear that he might need to leave Tottenham, but considering he is valued at £46.8m by Transfermarkt, it could be difficult to move him permanently.

So, a loan looks like the best option, and with the likes of Everton and PSG sniffing around, we would not be surprised to see Alli move on loan in the upcoming transfer window.
