Iago Falque faces a crucial summer of decision making both on his part and Tottenham's.
Last season saw Iago Falque impress for Tottenham Hotspur’s Under-21 outfit on numerous occasions, as well as impressing with Spanish outfit Almeria on loan. With that in mind some punters felt he might even get a chance in the first team.
However he was sent out to Spain on loan once again, this time with Rayo Vallecano.
He has suffered with injuries this season but since the turn of the year he has been a regular in the team as they moved away from the relegation zone in La Liga - and the Hulk lookalike is being tipped for a return to Tottenham.
And Falque himself has been speaking about his future.
He has spoken to AS recently about his future, as quoted by Inside Spanish Football:
“I’m happy with my performance in the second half of the season. I have regained the good vibes that I’ve been missing for quite a long time. I’m satisfied, but I don’t like making assessments before the end of the season. Rayo has a purchase option until 30th June. If they don’t exercise it, I have to go back to England. But it takes patience, whatever will be will be.”
Tim Sherwood is currently in charge and if it looked like staying that way Falque might consider a return with more gusto. The boss has been bringing through young players since his arrival - with Nabil Bentaleb and Harry Kane the biggest beneficiaries.
But Sherwood seems to be on his way out of the door at Spurs and at 24 he has to consider what is best for his long term future.
Rayo are not blessed with money, not many teams in Spain are at the moment, but it would probably be the best move for his career if he stayed at the club.
But as the player said ‘whatever will be will be’, as his future remains up in the air.
