Gifted Spurs midfielder subject of shock loan bid from Scottish giants, manager a huge fan

The development of some of the younger stars at White Hart Lane has been one of the sewing motifs for the Spurs fans in the Transfer Tavern to wax poetic about over the past 12 months or so.

Under the masterful stewardship of Mauricio Pochettino, the North London outfit have crafted a vibrant young side and seen some burgeoning talent blossom into established Premier League players.

However, the punters in tonight know that the arrival of Champions League football at White Hart Lane (and possibly Wembley) will mean bigger names walk through the door and perhaps mean at least a few youngster will be farmed out on loan to make room.

Loans can be a risky business and Spurs starlet Alex Pritchard is indicative of that. Having excelled at Brentford, the 23-year old is struggling to even get a look in at West Brom.

Imagine their delight then when reports from Football Insider suggest Rangers are aiming to lure him North of the Border on loan ahead of their return to top flight football.

Despite how highly regarded he is at the Lane, an ankle injury over Christmas stalled his progress somewhat. While there is no doubt hope he can develop into a first-team player, the England under-21 international needs a strong run of games first.

Gers boss Mark Warburton brought the best out of the midfielder while both were at Griffin Park, seeing a solid return of 12 goals and seven assists during his season in West London.

As a result, he is reportedly aiming to bring him to Ibrox next season.

It is claimed that Tottenham will make a decision as to the whereabouts of his future later this summer.

Would a move to Scotland help get Pritchard back on track following his injury?
