Peterborough have done a fair bit of loan business with Spurs. Luke McGee, Shaq Coulthirst, Nathan Oduwa, Kenneth McEvoy and Alex Pritchard have played for The Posh on their path to obscurity.
However it appears that the League One boss has had his fill of these ‘opportunities of a lifetime’.
Think we shall finally be giving young prem loanees a big swerve next season. https://t.co/gQH8BHLhHR

Gladys told us a while back that Marcus Edwards was going to be loaned out.
The update is that Poch is still struggling to find a club to take the boy of his hands as Peterborough have bailed.
A ‘big swerve’ is pretty emphatic language.
Not reevaluating, but actively seeking to kick into touch.
The Marcus Edwards hysteria is yet another aberration from Tottenham fans absolutely desperate to back the next big thing despite any evidence to the contrary.
This time, all it took was an entirely uneventful 15 minute cameo appearance against the mighty Gillingham in the League Cup to get Spurs fans all unnecessary.
Everybody wants every Spurs youth player to succeed, but overhyping complete novices is a path pretty much guaranteed to lead to disappointment.
It’s also embarrassing.
