“Keep an eye on”, “might be some late interest” – Tottenham presented with loan options for 23-year-old

By Mehdi Gokal -

Leeds United have reportedly joined the list of clubs expressing interest in signing Tottenham Hotspur full-back Djed Spence on a loan deal.

The defender has found playing time limited at Tottenham and is being considered for a potential move away from the club.

Southampton, Bristol City, and Swansea City have been linked with a loan move for the former Middlesbrough player, and now Leeds United have joined the race.

Leeds have already signed Joe Rodon on loan from Tottenham this summer and are now keen on signing Spence.

Jacobs claims that while Tottenham would prefer a permanent transfer for the player, the interests received so far have been for loan deals.

Jacobs also suggested the possibility of late interest from Ligue 1 clubs, particularly highlighting Strasbourg as a potential candidate.

Speaking on the Last Word On Spurs podcast, Jacobs said:

“I think Tottenham’s perspective would be exactly that, a permanent move, but at the moment it is loan options which have been presented to Spurs, which, might be okay.”

“The only interest to date in his services is for loans and I think he would need to drop down to the Championship as well.

“There might be some late interest from other Ligue 1 clubs, and I would keep an eye on Strasbourg, who are now controlled by Blue Co who are the owners of Chelsea.

“Even though he’s not necessarily the profile – because it’s about young signings and possible French signings – this might be a slight exception to the rule so keep an eye on that but, again, that’s only being discussed as Strasbourg at the moment.

“As far as the Championship enquiries are concerned my understanding is they are for loans and there are three clubs I would keep an eye on if they decide to loan him, and those are Swansea, Bristol City and Leeds United.”

Spence joined Tottenham at the start of the last season for a fee of around £20m but has not been allowed enough playing time to showcase his abilities.

His signing took place under the management of former Tottenham boss Antonio Conte, who later clarified that Spence was a club signing rather than a personal preference.

With the subsequent signing of Pedro Porro in January, Spence’s playing time at Tottenham became further limited.

And it looks like he has not been able to impress Ange Postecoglou either if the club are willing to loan him out.
