Football Insider verdict:
The 20-year-old centre-back played a big role for the Tottenham Under-23s last season, making 19 appearances, scoring once and adding an assist. However, he never made a senior appearance for Spurs and now it’s time for him to try and get his career back on track at the top-flight Polish side. Arka Gdynia are a relatively unknown outfit and it’s a long journey back to the English Premier League, but Maghoma has made one appearance for his country, DR Congo, and he’ll certainly have bigger things in mind for his career. He’ll be disappointed that he wasn’t offered a new deal at Spurs, but it won’t have come as much of a surprise and the fact is that he was nowhere near the first team under Pochettino. He’s a towering presence though and if he can establish himself as a rock in Poland, he can plot a route back up the European leagues.
