Report: Ange Postecoglou blocks permanent transfer of Tottenham attacker

By Mehdi Gokal -

Tottenham Hotspur are investing heavily in the development of their academy talents, ensuring a bright future for the club.

The North London outfit boasts promising young players such as Mikey Moore, Alfie Dorrington, Will Lankshear, and George Abbott, all poised to become the next generation of stars.

Among these emerging talents, Jamie Donley stands out as a particularly promising youngster.

Donley, a member of the club’s U21 side, had an incredible season which saw him gain the the attention of Ange Postecoglou as well, who gave him 4 appearances with the first team.

He also actively participated in the training sessions with the first team, highlighting his potential integration into the first team.

Despite significant interest from various clubs in signing Donley, Tottenham’s head coach Ange Postecoglou has made it clear that the 19-year-old attacker is not for sale.

According to GiveMeSport, Postecoglou holds Donley in high regard, seeing him as a future cornerstone of the club.

The Australian coach has blocked any dale of the player and is only entertaining the possibility of a loan move for Donley this summer, emphasising his long-term value to Tottenham.

Donley showcased his talent for Tottenham’s U21 side last season, impressively netting 8 goals and providing 17 assists in 27 appearances across all competitions.

His performances further underline his potential. Additionally, the attacking midfielder has scored 5 goals in his 7 caps for the England U19 team.

Even though Postecoglou has said no to a permanent sale, a loan move could be on the cards for Donley, providing him with the opportunity to secure regular competitive senior-level football and gain invaluable top-flight experience.

Oxford United have emerged as strong contenders to sign him on loan.

BBC’s Nizaar Kinsella earlier today confirmed that newly promoted Championship side Oxford United are in talks to take the young attacker on loan.

As Spurs continue to focus on their future, the decision to loan out Donley or integrate him into the first team next season remains to be seen.

A loan move would undoubtedly aid his development, but it must be at the right club to ensure he maximises his potential and returns to Tottenham ready to contribute at the highest level.
