Michael Bridge says “a number of Premier League clubs” will be on “alert” as Tottenham Hotspur put Djed Spence up for sale.
The transfer expert shared that Tottenham would “consider a transfer for Djed Spence” if a team put an “acceptable offer” on the table, he told The Transfer Show Sky Sports (8/8/23 at 5:20 p.m.).
Last summer, the hard-hitting right-back was on the up, having just helped Nottingham Forest promote to the Premier League.
The 23-year-old was loaned to the City Ground from Middlesbrough before returning to his home club and then being signed by Spurs.
But within six months he was loaned out to Ligue 1 club Rennes where he had some good moments.
And now he’s headed for the exit without a single Spurs start to his name.
“This could alarm a number of Premier League clubs,” Bridge said. “Last season he was very appreciated. The Spurs won the race for his signing. He was loaned to Nottingham Forest, they signed him the previous season after a brilliant loan from Boro.
“Things didn’t really work out for him under Antonio Conte, then he was loaned out to Rennes.
“As far as I know, Spurs would consider a transfer for him if they received an acceptable offer.”
Spence was treated harshly
Players could probably accept a sale if they didn’t play well or don’t fit into a particular manager’s system.
But that wasn’t the case with Spence, he just wasn’t treated fairly.
Before entering the club, Antonio Conte signaled he didn’t want him and he showed it, subbing him in for a minute here and there before loaning him out.
