Loan Watch

We have been keeping an eye on the Spurs players who are currently out on loan and start this week with some good news for Atlanta based Anton Walkes who saw his contract extended recently; congratulations to him.


This comes following him establishing himself as the first choice right back for the club.  It did surprise some with Spurs having both Aurier and Trippier fighting for the first choice RB position with Kyle Walker-Peters breathing down their necks.

However his performances have done enough to justify the extension being triggered – perhaps Spurs still see him as versatile, he played CD before leaving on this loan or maybe they are simply protecting their asset with Atlanta expected to make a bid for the player when his loan expires.  Only time will tell.

The American youth international and Spurs academy product has been finding it tough going nailing down a first team spot in Sheffield however he did feature in the clubs recent win over city rivals Wednesday and played very well in what was an intense and hostile atmosphere.

Praised highly by all the coaching staff it is well known that Pochettino is keen for him to use this year as a platform to kick on and develop into a first team player at Spurs – however the signing of Juan Foyth has given him some competition for this spot.

Vincent Janssen.

The Dutch striker who struggled to settle in England playing as Harry Kane’s understudy has taken to life in Turkey like a duck to water.  He has already scored two goals in four appearances and the fans love him – probably helped by him scoring the winner in the local derby – which was a fiery affair – made the battle of the bridge seem tame!


The future is still uncertain for the striker however with Spurs refusing to agree a permanent deal or a ‘right to buy’ clause in with the loan – Pochettino is said to still rate the striker who in his mind simply needed time and games to find form.

If he scores a hat full in Turkey, confidence is high and still only 24/25 then in the summer Spurs could well have him back at the new Lane – in all likelihood however if an offer of £18m+ is made – he will be gone.

Josh Onomah.

The England U21 intenrational has struggle of late with minor injuries which have kept him in and out of the Aston Villa team but when he does feature he is certainly making an impact with many Villa fans complimenting his fitness and his work ethic for the team, always chasing down the ball and pressing the opposition.

He has of course also scored twice for the Championship club and with more games will no doubt look to add to that before the end of the season.


Josh is very much in the plans of Pochettino and it was a real fight for him to be allowed by the manager to go out on loan.  Some people believe that Winks has “jumped” his team mate but coaches at Spurs see the two of them as different players who can compliment each other and form a Spurs midfield for years to come!

Onomah is developing into a true box to box midfielder while at Villa.  Strong on the ball, with good distribution it is clear he is modelling himself after Dembele – a player Onomah credited a lot with working with him while at Spurs.
