Tottenham looking to loan out goalkeeper Alfie Whiteman
A product of the Tottenham youth academy, Whiteman has progressed through the ranks impressively. He made ten appearances for the club’s U18 outfit, before being pushed to the U23s. The Englishman has turned up 27 times for the reserves, but has managed just one clean sheet so far. (h/t Transfermarkt)
Whiteman has also featured four times in the UEFA Youth League for Spurs, but is yet to make his senior debut. He has represented the England national team across age groups through U16s to U19s. (h/t Transfermarkt)
Tottenham’s goalkeeping department is very well-stocked currently, with Joe Hart arriving on a free transfer this summer to fill the void left by Michel Vorm’s departure. As things stand, captain Hugo Lloris is the first-choice, with Hart his backup and Paulo Gazzaniga the third-choice.
This means, Whiteman is unlikely to be anywhere near the first-team picture in the upcoming campaign. So, a loan departure to a club where he can get proper senior football experience would be the right move at this stage of his career.
And as per the report, there has been plenty of interest in the former England U19 international from clubs in League One and League Two. The club, too, are happy to let him leave on a temporary deal to get valuable first-team exposure. (h/t Daily Mail)
