Forward Bryan Gil opens up on transfer talks with Tottenham Hotspur ahead of January loan move

Speaking to LaLiga World (h/t football.london), Tottenham Hotspur winger Bryan Gil has opened up about the transfer discussion he had with the club before making the move to Valencia on loan in the January transfer window.

The 21-year-old only moved to Spurs last summer from Sevilla, but has struggled to impose himself on the first team and convince the manager of a more regular role in the squad.

Gil talked about how when his agent rang him about Valencia’s offer for a loan move in the winter transfer window, he talked to Tottenham and they were of the opinion that they would like to see him get more games under his belt.

“I was in England at home when my agent rang me about Valencia’s offer. I had to talk to my parent club, Tottenham, and they said they’d like to see me get games under my belt.”

The Spaniard was last seen in Valencia’s heart-breaking loss to Real Betis in the Copa del Rey final, where he came on as a second-half substitute. Unfortunately for him and his team, they would lose the match in a penalty shootout to their La Liga rivals.

“I’m very happy”

Only having moved to the Premier League last summer, the youngster had to deal with adapting to the fast-paced nature and physicality of the competition. Not just that, he also had to live with playing under two managers at Tottenham – first under Nuno Espirito Santo, and then under Antonio Conte.

These factors may have forced him to move back to Spain to gain more minutes on the pitch, but the player has no complaints and said that he was very happy, believing his loan move was a great decision and that things have gone pretty well.

“Things have gone pretty well since I arrived and I’m very happy. It was a great decision to come here. I wanted to get games and I thought I’d get the chance here.”

After struggling to get game time in England, the winger has now become a regular feature for Valencia in his native country. The move has certainly been beneficial, with Gil gaining massive first-team experience.

At Tottenham, he saw his path to claiming a spot in the first-team blocked by the likes of Son Heung-Min, Lucas Moura, and Steven Bergwijn. It is now even harder to book a starting spot in attack, with January signing Dejan Kulusevski making the position his own.

Gil is expected back with the Lilywhites at the end of the season, when his loan spell at Valencia expires. With the competition in the team at the moment, it will be interesting to see what his final decision will be.

It may be a bit far-fetched to think that Tottenham would look to sell him in the upcoming transfer window, given that he only moved to north London the year before. It remains to be seen whether he will stay and fight for a spot in the first team, or go out on loan once again.
