Tottenham Hotspur: Eccleshare claims Alli’s permanent departure would be ‘tricky’ in January

Tottenham Hotspur: Eccleshare claims Alli’s permanent departure would be ‘tricky’ in January - Premier League

In recent comments made on a discussion on The Athletic, Tottenham Hotspur correspondent Charlie Eccleshare stated his belief that the permanent departure of Dele Alli would be ‘tricky’ in the January transfer window.

Since moving to Spurs from Milton Keynes Dons in what was a £5.97 million move back in 2015, Alli has gone on to feature 231 times for the north London side, scoring 64 goals and providing 56 assists along the way.

However, so far this season, the £46.8 million-rated 24-year-old has often found himself left out of Jose Mourinho’s matchday squads for the club’s Premier League fixtures, making just three appearances in the league for Spurs, totalling just 71 minutes of top-flight football.

As a result of this lack of game time, it has been reported that Tottenham would be willing to let the midfielder leave the club in the January transfer window, either on a permanent or loan deal.

However, writing recently on a discussion on The Athletic website, Eccleshare suggested that it would be unlikely the England international would leave the club on a permanent basis in the upcoming window.

He wrote: “I would expect a loan, permanent will be very tricky to do in Jan.”

Transfer Tavern Take

Despite being a regular fixture in the Spurs side over the course of the last five years, from Eccleshare’s comments, it would indeed appear that there is truth to the rumours that Alli’s time in north London could be coming to an end, although, it would appear that the midfielder is more likely to leave on a temporary basis in January, rather than something more permanent.
