Tottenham have got some incredibly talented young players at the club at the moment, and that was clear for all to see during the club’s pre-season tour as Jack Roles, Oliver Skipp, Troy Parrott, Japhet Tanganga, George Marsh and Harvey White all played their part.
However, with plenty of youngsters seeking minutes and game time in senior football, it would make a lot of sense for the club to let some of their younger talents leave the club this summer and ply their trade down in the EFL or abroad.
We’ve seen that Cameron Carter-Vickers has been allowed to leave the club this summer on loan for Stoke City, which was announced very recently on deadline day, but now it would make a lot of sense for the club to allow a few more of the young talents leave the club.
It all revolves around whether or not any of the youngsters will be set to get many minutes. You’d imagine that Skipp and Parrott may be given a real chance to step up and show what they can do, and with Juan Foyth currently injured, it could give young Tanganga a chance.
Aside from those three, though, giving plenty of youngsters a chance to go down to the Championship, League One or League Two to make their mark would make plenty of sense, as it’s hard to get a feel for senior football when couped up playing U18s and U23s development stuff.
Carter-Vickers was on-loan at Swansea City last season and now makes his way to another former Premier League side in Stoke, and if the USA international can do so then there really is no reason why the likes of Marsh, White, Roles and others can’t also do so.
Mauricio Pochettino may have plans for some of his youngsters, but if he doesn’t plan on dishing out senior chances for the more junior members of the squad then sending them out to gain experience seems to be the best thing to do.
