Anthony Georgiou was surplus to requirements at Tottenham and embarked upon a loan move to Ipswich Town in order to get regular playing time. With Erik Lamela, Ryan Sessegnon, Lucas Moura and Heung-min Son for competition, minutes were always going to be hard to come by.

The 22-year-old is unlikely to have a future at Spurs, but he’s been vindicated in his decision to join Ipswich this season. Georgiou is a regular at Portman Road and has been rewarded for his form with a call-up to the Cyprus national team – the wide-man shone for his country in Monday’s 4-0 win over San Marino.

Georgiou has made three appearances in all competitions for Ipswich, racking up 86 minutes of playing time. As per Transfermarkt, the Cypriot was given 45 minutes in the Tractor Boys’ 2-1 win over AFC Wimbledon (August 20), 18 minutes in their 5-0 thrashing of Bolton Wanderers (August 24) and 24 minutes in a 3-0 win over Shrewsbury Town (August 31).

Town are currently third in League One with 14 points from six games. As for Georgiou, the 22-year-old has been impressing for club and country and may be putting himself in the shop window as a result.
