According to a report in the Daily Mail, Tottenham Hotspur are casting their eye over Milos Veljkovic at the summer’s Under-20 World Cup, before deciding on whether to loan him out.
It is stated that ‘a number of clubs’ are keen to take him on loan next season, having seen him impress with Charlton and Middlesbrough last term, whilst Spurs staff members will assess whether he is suitable for first-team action.
Head coach Mauicio Pochettino has already shown a willingness to utilise young players if they have proven themselves, and the midfield positions have been particularly fruitful this past campaign.
Nabil Bentaleb and Ryan Mason have broken through and excelled as key players, and Veljkovic could be the next player to work his way into Pochettino’s plans.
Naturally a defensive midfielder, he is also able to play in the heart of defence, and his versatility could prove useful as the Argentine coach looks to juggle four competitions next season.
There are no indications in the report as to which clubs have shown an interest in taking him on loan next term, but if he is not included in Tottenham’s squad, it is likely that the North London outfit would push to see him loaned to a Premier League side, rather than see him spend another season in the Championship.
