The Australian has recently been nominated for a Ballon d'Or.
Tottenham Hotspur have earned a reputation for their recent development of young talents such as Ryan Mason, Nabil Bentaleb and Harry Kane.
The central-midfielder joined Tottenham in 2011 after a successful trial. Luongo played just one time for Tottenham, featuring in a League Cup defeat against Stoke City back in 2011. It was a tie he would want to forget - his missed penalty cost Spurs the game.
He went on to join Swindon Town in 2013 where he became one of the stars of the Football League it is his form for Australia that has earned him a shock nomination for the Ballon d'Or.
“Leaving Tottenham was difficult, but it’s worked pretty well in the long run and just from my moves and the Asian Cup and my accomplishments I think I’m doing the right things, and I’ve got the right attitude.”
Luongo is of course highly unlikely to win the accolade as world's best player but there is no doubt he is a talent who might have, given the chance, have made the Tottenham first-team.
Now he must find his best form for QPR as he tries to book himself a couple of meetings with his former team Tottenham in the Premier League next season.
