A lot of Tottenham Hotspur fans have been left furious at a transfer claim to emerge on Twitter regarding their 19-year-old left-back, Dennis Cirkin.
According to Football Insider, League One side Sunderland are in advanced talks with the north London side for the signing of the young defender.
Should Spurs sell or loan Cirkin?
It is believed the two clubs are in discussions over a potential permanent deal for the left-back, who is yet to make his Premier League debut but has made the top-flight squad on one occasion in the past (via Transfermarkt).
“Gutted if he goes, I’ve been looking forward to him for couple of seasons, honestly thought that he might have got some cup games this year. Hope he does well for you if he does leave. Cracking lad by all accounts.”
It seems the potential permanent deal has come as a surprise to these Spurs fans, as many had hoped any potential deal would only be on a loan basis.
However, when you consider Sergio Reguilon, Ryan Sessegnon and Ben Davies are all battling for the spot at left-back, you have to question whether there was a clear route for Cirkin to make his way into the side in the near future.
