With Tottenham Hotspur confirming late yesterday evening that born again Moussa Sissoko was now out for the next three months with a medial collateral ligament injury, thoughts instantly turn to a possible replacement with the January transfer window open, but some fans have an alternative idea – bringing back midfielder Luke Amos from his loan spell out with Championship side Queens Park Rangers.
Sissoko picked up the problem in our game against Southampton on New Year’s Day and has now undergone surgery, but 22-year-old Amos has had a good season with QPR, making 14 starts and five substitute showings – returning two goals – playing predominantly in the defensive midfielder role.
With sissoko out for basically the rest of the season we need to sign someone and/or recall Amos

Surely recalling Luke Amos is something we should consider? Baring in mind the news we got today from sissoko. His stats for QPR are looking promising and he’s definitely ready to step up this year

Yes please. Amos is our best midfielder at this point (Tanguay aside obvs but can’t count him when he never plays 2 games in a row)

Good call. Amos showed such promise when he has those great pre-season performances before last season. If he hadn’t got injured Poch would have given him minutes ahead of Skipp

That’s a lovely shout tbf. Amos strikes me as confident and unfazed, and as you say, he’s put in some hard yards already

Based on his numbers this season for QPR defensively he would be perfect for partnering NDombele. Would run his heart out and stick to his game plan as he’s a spurs boy.

Good shout – said exactly same thing.
More experienced than Skipp and bit more physicality

With Amos only having one substitute appearance under his belt with us, with further game time coming at Southend United, Stevenage and QPR, despite his talent it would be a massive step up and a more difficult Premier League introduction given our current form, but in advance of someone else coming through the door, a recall for him would at least present us with another option and better depth.
Is Amos Ready To Step Up?
Leave Him At QPR
