Expert: 'Embarrassing' Tottenham are being left behind by Arsenal after confirmed news

It is “embarrassing” that Tottenham are yet to send any of their young stars out on loan this summer.

That is according to Spurs insider John Wenham, who regularly breaks news about the club on his Lilywhite Rose social media channels.

Tottenham are yet to secure any loan deals for their most promising young stars ahead of the 2022-23 season.

On Saturday (23 July), sources told Football Insider that 20-year-old Spurs star Harvey White is a transfer target for Swansea City.

With Arsenal and Chelsea already confirming several loans for some of their top talents this summer, Wenham has been left frustrated by the lack of departures from Hotspur Way.

“I find it very frustrating,” Wenham told Football Insider correspondent Ben Wild.

“Arsenal and Chelsea have something like 10 players they have secured loans for now. What that means is, those players aren’t just getting that experience ahead of our players, they are also closing avenues at certain clubs that our players could have taken instead.

“We are kind of missing the boat on a few things here. I wonder if it is because of the restructure here this summer with Simon Davies coming in from Man City and Grétar Steinsson joining as well.

“I was pleased to see the update from Football Insider reporting Swansea’s interest in Harvey White, that would be a start.

“But we have so many players who are dying to go out on loan and they need it for their own development. We have announced 14 new scholars so that is 14 new players to take roles in the Under 18s and possibly Under 21s.

“That should allow others to finally go out on loan but we seem to be so far behind, it’s embarrassing really.

“We are training these players to a decent level and not sending them out on loan, the final stage of their development.

“Jamie Bowden, Charlie Sayers and Nile John just need the right loan and their development can accelerate.”
