Will Grant Ward follow in the footsteps of Alex Pritchard and be Tottenham's next breakout loan star?

The young Tottenham Hotspur midfielder is looking like a very good player while on loan at Rotherham United.

Tottenham Hotspur have a number of exciting young players currently on loan, but there is no doubt who enjoyed the best week.

Grant Ward is a 20-year-old midfielder who is currently playing for Championship side Rotherham United, and based on his most recent performance he could be the latest Tottenham youngster to enjoy a breakout loan spell.

Last season that honour went to Alex Pritchard, who shone for Brentford, scoring 12 goals and providing seven assists and almost helping them to Premier League promotion as a result.

Now Pritchard is back at White Hart Lane trying to impress Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino, so could Ward be the latest player to make a name for himself elsewhere before returning to North London in the hope of a first-team chance?

Teenage winger Nathan Oduwa may have a thing or two to say about that having started his own loan spell in Scotland with Rangers in great form, but down in England it is Ward who is making waves.

Ward was man-of-the-match for Rotherham in a 2-1 defeat to Burnley on Friday, scoring an absolutely wonderful goal and excelling throughout.

He may not have been able to prevent his current side from losing the game, but with a 100 per cent tackle rate, an 89 per cent passing accuracy and an outstanding strike to his name, he is clearly one to watch.
