Tottenham Hotspur defender Malachi Fagan-Walcott was expected to join Swindon Town permanently during the January transfer window.
However, a report from Football Insider claims that the move eventually collapsed late on in the window after the two clubs failed to get the paperwork done in time.
The registration of documents was not completed by the 11:00 PM deadline and the 20-year-old defender is now set to stay with the Premier League club until the end of the season.
Tottenham were looking to cash in on the 20-year-old in January and the move would have been ideal for the young defender as well.
Fagan-Walcott has not been able to force his way into Antonio Conte’s first team plants and he has been competing in the Premier League 2 with the club’s under-21 side.
The defender has been with Tottenham since the age of 13 and has had several loan spells to continue his development. However, the 20-year-old has never entirely managed to establish himself as a first-team player.
The defender needs to play regular first-team football at this stage of his career and clearly, a move away from Tottenham would be ideal for him.
It will be interesting to see if Fagan-Walcott can continue his development with regular game time with the club’s youth team until the end of the season.
A permanent move away from Tottenham is definitely on the cards in the summer and the player will be hoping to get his career back on track with a fresh start.
