Should Spurs agree long-term loan partnership with Rangers following Oduwa's Ibrox success?

Nathan Oduwa is enjoying a superb loan spell with Rangers so far.

It's fair to say that Nathan Oduwa's loan spell at Rangers has been a roaring success so far - and Tottenham will certainly be paying close attention.

Oduwa, 19, has come up through the ranks at White Hart Lane, and is considered to be another one of the club's up-and-coming youngsters, with Spurs taking steps to develop their own players under Mauricio Pochettino.

The likes of Danny Rose, Ryan Mason, Andros Townsend and Harry Kane have all emerged in the Tottenham first team - and one thing they have in common is that they all spent time on loan away from White Hart Lane in order to gain valuable experience.

That has also been the case with Oduwa this season, as after a spell with Luton Town last season, the flying winger was sent up to Scotland with Rangers - and some supporters were worried that the Scottish Championship wasn't a good enough level of competition.

So far, Oduwa has taken the division by storm, dazzling defences with his blazing speed and impressive dribbling ability, earning rave reviews for his performances at Ibrox so far.

Another Spurs player, Dominic Ball, is also on loan at Rangers, with Tottenham clearly trusting Rangers boss Mark Warburton when it comes to player development.

Spurs sent playmaker Alex Pritchard on loan to Brentford last season, and he worked superbly under Warburton at Griffin Park, racking up 12 goals and seven assists in the process, before returning to Pochettino's first team this summer.

With Tottenham having belief in Warburton's ability, Spurs should at least consider the prospect of striking up an agreement with Rangers where they can send more players on loan to the Ibrox club, much like Chelsea and Vitesse Arnhem have in recent years.

Once Rangers establish themselves back at the top of Scottish football, signing Tottenham reserves on loan may not quite cut it - but whilst they are vying for promotion and then looking to grow in the top flight again, agreeing a move to sign more Spurs players could be beneficial for all parties.

Few clubs and stadiums can give youngsters a taste of playing under immense pressure like Rangers and Ibrox, and Oduwa is already growing under the expectation with the Glasgow club - and that should prepare him well for his return to White Hart Lane next summer, when other Spurs youngsters could yet head to Ibrox in the other direction.
