Watch Spurs target Djed Spence’s best actions vs The Foxes | Read the analysis

According to a number of sources, including the Telegraph’s Matt Law, Tottenham is monitoring Nottingham Forest right-back, Djed Spence. Now, I’m close to losing count of how much money we’ve spent trying – and failing – to replace Kyle Walker, but this boy looks like another good shout.

Here’s the goal, which many have been cooing over, and rightly so. This was against a decent Premier League side; a move and a strike of the highest standard.

Near miss

Slightly lower down the shooting ladder, we have this Robbie Keane-powered effort.

Total actions / successful

In respect of the ‘less exciting stuff’, Djed struggled to even hit basic competency levels. 44% of all actions that were successful is not good enough…

Successful passing accuracy

Nor is a passing accuracy of 59%.

Spence also lost the ball too often, 19 times in all, 6 times in his own half.

Aged 21, the lad on loan from Middlesbrough can deliver moments of excitement, but he also needs to master some basics.

By the way, well done to the Leicester City ‘fan’ who decided to lose his mind and attack Forest players. Hopefully he’s still in police custody.

Levy will tell Donna to “let it be known ” that we are interested in the player at the beginning of the window and just when the season ticket deadline closes he will chuck in a low ball offer and claim when the window closes that we tried but just couldn’t get the deal over the line. The lad looks a prospect with pace to burn. A proper club will probably jump in offer the right money and close the deal in a few days.

Too many eyes on him now, the Genius doesn’t like bidding wars.

He has been mentioned here previously and if the rumours are correct, the reasons we couldn’t get him in the Jan window was because he can’t play for another team this season having played for both M’Boro and Forest, plus we bid 3m less than the asking price, apparently. Definitely worth a punt when you consider how much we overpaid for Royal, but him and Johnson will be on many PL teams radar now after their recent displays including yesterday.

Sky mentioned on deadline day he wouldn’t be allowed to move until summer because he’s played for 2 clubs already this season.

I’d say wait until the summer to see who the manager is likely to be. Or possibly even who the owner might be.

DJ Ed Spence…In da house.

Worth considering that Rodon was a top defender in the lower leagues too when he was being monitored.

If he’s a”target” it means that he will never play for Spurs!
