Tottenham tipped to sign Max Aarons and loan him out by Paul Robinson
The 21-year-old Aarons has grown into a first-team regular at Carrow Road over the past couple of years or so. Having helped them to promotion to the Premier League, the right-back was one of the few positives in a campaign that ended in relegation last time out.
Since going back to the Championship, Aarons has been impressive yet again, helping Norwich’s push for a return to the top-flight. The Englishman has scored a goal and registered three assists in 25 matches in the second division.
However, given that the club already has Matt Doherty and Serge Aurier competing for the right-back slot, Robinson has claimed that if Spurs do sign Aarons, he will immediately be sent out on loan.
“I cannot see Aarons getting any game time. Where would he play? Doherty and Aurier would play ahead of him. He (Aarons) could be signed and loaned back out as a potential one for the future. Spurs have done that type of deal in the past and they are likely to again. Daniel (Levy) likes doing deals like that.”

Given that Aurier’s contract with Tottenham expires next year, Aarons can be a good investment. Moving for him now and sending him out on loan till the end of the season can turn out to be a smart piece of business.
However, Manchester United are also in the running for the Englishman’s signing. (h/t Football.london)
