Leicester City and Brentford keen to sign fringe Tottenham Hotspur player Djed Spence
The Englishman was signed from Middlesbrough last summer for a fee that could rise to 20million Pounds with add-ons. That is quite a lot of money for a 22-year-old with no Premier League experience at that point.
Fast forward to now, he has played a paltry five minutes of football under manager Antonio Conte in the Premier League. This has come across four games, where he has been substituted into the match as a last-minute substitute.
What is frustrating, or could be frustrating, for most Spurs fans is the fact that neither Emerson Royal and Matt Doherty have proven they are undroppable. They can be weak links on the right-hand side.
Spence has a knack for getting into dangerous positions in attack although it is hard to assess how he will fare against Premier League opponents when he has had next to no playing time in the competition so far.
Perhaps Leicester City and Brentford can give him that. It isn’t mentioned if the move would be a permanent or a loan transfer, but given the fact that he was just signed last summer, it would make sense if it is the latter.
If it is, then it’s a win-win situation. We can get his wages off our books for the remainder of the season and he can get playing time there – a chance to prove that he can make it at Spurs.
With just Mads Roerslev and young Fin Stevens as their natural right-backs, Spence can fancy playing down the right flank of manager Thomas Frank’s defence. Leicester currently have James Justin and Ricardo Pereira out with injury, which could make Spence a useful addition to them.

Moreover, it seems that we could get a deal for Pedro Porro across the line this January. If that happens, it’s curtains for Spence’s playing time here, at least for now.
