McGee, 20, has not made his senior debut for Tottenham, but he was on the bench for the 1-1 draw against Liverpool on Saturday with star goalkeeper Hugo Lloris injured.
However, Mauricio Pochettino is hoping to land Espanyol goalkeeper Paul Lopez before Wednesday’s 11pm deadline and the Argentine manager is keen for McGee to get some first-team experience under his belt.

Meanwhile, Oduwa, 20 has gone on loan to his fourth club after spells at Luton, Rangers and Colchester.
The youngster is still waiting to make his senior debut for Spurs, but he has played in 32 professional encounters across his various loans.
The north London side have looked to send their young prospects out on loan this summer with Filip Lesniak and Will Miller also leaving in temporary deals to Slovan Liberec and Burton respectively.
Oduwa and McGee will now join a Peterborough side which sits in seventh place in League One after five games, as they look to push for a promotion place in the new campaign.
