Tottenham Hotspur: Alasdair Gold claims Djed Spence not set for January exit

After speaking to people who know the player, Alasdair Gold has admitted that Djed Spence isn’t set for a loan move away from Tottenham Hotspur in January.

Spence was an exciting signing over the summer for Spurs as he will have been seen as the right back, or right wing-back they could use for many years after impressing in the Championship last season with eight goal involvements.

However, Antonio Conte claimed that Spence was not someone he signed, but instead was a club signing and since then the defender hasn’t been able to make an impact racking up just 26 first-team minutes and also missing out on several matchday squads.

Despite his severe lack of first-team opportunities, Gold has insisted on his YouTube channel that Spence isn’t set to depart next month in search of regular football.

Does Spence deserve more opportunities?





(34:20) “From what I understand I was asking around a couple of days ago, it doesn’t seem like there’s been any indication to Spence or his people yet, or anyone that knows him, that he’s to be sent out on loan or anything like that.

“So at this moment in time, nothing like that has been communicated, whether that changes with what happens in the January transfer window, but hopefully that’s a good sign at the moment that there’s been no discussion about a change in his future.”

Starting with the club's £60m summer signing, which of these players could Richarlison be facing?

It does indeed show that Spence could finally be winning over Conte if he doesn’t seem that the defender needs a loan spell away from the club and could see him eventually start to prove why Spurs splashed out £20 million on him over the summer.

Spence will have been hoping for more meaningful minutes when he ditched regular football with now Premier League outfit Nottingham Forest for the bright lights of London and Tottenham, so the second half of the season will be huge for him.
