Tottenham Hotspur: Alasdair Gold hints at loan move for Dane Scarlett

Tottenham Hotspur: Alasdair Gold hints at loan move for Dane Scarlett -Premier League News

Tottenham Hotspur forward Dane Scarlett has been frustrated with his lack of game-time under Antonio Conte and is likely to go out on loan in the summer, according to Spurs correspondent Alasdair Gold.

The Lowdown: More minutes required

The 18-year-old started the 2021/22 season as he would have hoped, having made four appearances in the Europa Conference League under former manager Nuno Espirito Santo, but he has only played a total of 10 minutes under Conte and has had to make do with very limited opportunities.

Despite having made a small breakthrough into the first team during the autumn, it has been a frustrating period for the youngster, who has now re-entered the under-23 fold, but it now sounds like a possible move away from N17 could be on the cards.

The Latest: Offers set to come in for Scarlett

Gold delivered an update on the future of Scarlett in his column for football.london, claiming that unless Conte decides otherwise, the club plans to ‘loan the teenage striker out’ in order to get him the ‘minutes he needs’ in order to continue his development.

Championship outfit Bournemouth are said to have ‘made an approach’ for the £225k-rated prospect last summer, but Spurs are believed to have rejected that move as a result of wanting their man to have guaranteed playing time.

The N17 hierarchy are reportedly expecting to receive more offers for Scarlett from the second tier of English football in the coming months, although a move to League One could prove more beneficial considering the success that Troy Parrott has had at MK Dons.

The Verdict: Star in the making

Scarlett’s international record for England’s under-19s has been very impressive, having scored seven goals in just eight outings in the past year, so it’s no wonder that he is attracting interest from potential suitors in the lower leagues.

Parrott’s spell away from the capital has majorly aided his development, and he will return to north London a much more prolific and confident player, so there’s plenty of hope that the same will happen with the English youngster if he exits Tottenham this summer.

Will Tottenham finish in the top 4 this season?

Yes

Yes

No

No

The youngster has some brilliant role models in this Spurs side in the form of Harry Kane and Son Heung-min, and if he can continue to learn from those two and progress as a finisher, he could be one of the fresh faces leading the line for Tottenham in years to come.
