Djed Spence ‘given the green light’ to pursue loan spell away from Tottenham as four Premier League clubs and German side linked with wing-back

    Tottenham have given Djed Spence the ‘green light’ to go out on loan in January with the wing-back struggling for game time under Antonio Conte.

    Spence joined Tottenham over the summer having impressed while away on loan at Nottingham Forest in the Championship last season, helping them earn promotion to the Premier League.

    However, his time at Spurs hasn’t gone to plan having been out of Conte’s side for much of his period there, making just six appearances for them over the course of the first half of the season.

    As a result, he has been frustrated by a lack of opportunities which has hindered his progress in the game and is looking for a move away to get more game time, according to Football.London.

    Tottenham’s current options at right wing-back are of Emerson Royal and Matt Doherty, and talkSPORT understands they’re in advanced talks to sign Sporting Lisbon full-back Pedro Porro this month too.

    Football.London’s report adds that there has been interest from Premier League sides Leicester, Southampton, Crystal Palace and Brentford for Spence, while German club Bayer Leverkusen are also keeping tabs on him.

    The 22-year-old would ideally want to be at a place where he can get regular game time to show his best qualities and perhaps make his way into the Tottenham first-team when he returns.

    After the signing of Spence was announced, Conte revealed it was a decision made by the club.
