Gedson Fernandes could leave Tottenham Hotspur in January

According to The Express, Tottenham Hotspur boss Jose Mourinho has admitted that the club could part ways with Gedson Fernandes in the upcoming January transfer window.

The 21-year-old joined Spurs in an extended 18-month-loan spell from Portuguese giants Benfica. However, it would appear that the club is keen to cut short his spell six months early.

As per the terms of the deal, Spurs can sign Fernandes on a permanent basis for €50million. However, it would be fair to say that chances of that happening now appear remote.

Fernandes has made just a solitary appearance for Tottenham this season. The likes of Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg, Harry Winks, Giovani Lo Celso, Tanguy Ndombele, Dele Alli and Moussa Sissoko all appear to be ahead of him in the pecking order.

The 21-year-old has made just 13 appearances for Tottenham. He is yet to play the complete 90 minutes even once.

Mourinho understands that neither Benfica nor the player would benefit from him spending more time on the sidelines. He admits that should the Portuguese again request the loan be terminated, Spurs will not refuse.

“If the club wants to end the relationship here, we will be here to collaborate, because we want the good of the player. Benfica has the power to decide and will be accepted by us.”

The manager however was much more complimentary regarding the other Benfica loanee, Carlos Vinicius. He believes the Brazilian is an excellent backup to Harry Kane.

While it is not certain if he will sign permanently with Spurs, Mourinho admits that the current agreement is a win for all parties involved.

Mourinho cannot be faulted for not giving Fernandes enough opportunities. He even tried out the youngster at right-back position over the summer without much success.

The writing was on the wall when Fernandes was omitted from our Europa League squad. It would appear that his nightmare stay in North London is about to come to an end.
