Swindon Town set to take Marcel Lavinier on a season-long loan from Tottenham Hotspur

Tottenham Hotspur right-back Marcel Lavinier is set to move to Swindon Town on a season-long loan, according to Football Insider (h/t football.london). The 21-year-old has been allowed to leave by Spurs.

The Wiltshire-based club want to make the North London side’s youngster their 16th signing of the summer. The League Two outfit have reached an agreement with Tottenham for the Portugal U18 international.

Lavinier joined Spurs’ reserve side in the summer of 2020 from Chelsea’s youth setup. The 21-year-old made his debut for the senior side in 2021 in a Europa League game against Wolfsberger AC.

However, the London-born defender hasn’t featured for Tottenham since. He’s mainly featured for the reserve side in Premier League 2. Now, the 21-year-old is being allowed to join the fourth tier of English football.

Lavinier is a versatile defender capable of playing in any position on the backline. However, getting into the Spurs side at the moment is no small feat.

Antonio Conte has several options to rely on for the full-back roles. On the right, Emerson Royal, Matt Doherty and Djed Spence are all in contention for the right-back spot.

The Brazilian has started the season in the Italian manager’s XI. While Emerson did not have the best of starts to his Tottenham career, he’s grown into the position with his performances.

Ivan Perisic and Ryan Sessegnon have started the season in fine form on the left flank. The Croatian has become the main choice for Conte over the last few games. The 33-year-old has started his career in North London exceptionally.

Lavinier has been at Tottenham for two seasons but hasn’t been able to break into the first-team squad. It is a wise move for the 21-year-old to find guaranteed game time elsewhere.
