Spurs are in need of a solid option at full-back, with the former Manchester United youngster in the mix.
Tim Sherwood has admitted that he is set to give young players a chance at White Hart Lane since his appointment as Tottenham manager – with one man set to benefit seemingly Zeki Fryers.
The 21-year-old got his first Premier League start of the season against Stoke in a 3-0 win on Sunday, and looked comfortable in a dominant Tottenham side.
However, with tough games against Manchester United and Arsenal over the next week, it remains to be seen just who will fill the problem position of left-back.
Jan Vertonghen has played there on occasion this season as a stop-gap, while Danny Rose has featured when fit.
However, there is certainly a case to suggest that Fryers has the opportunity to make the position his own.
With Rose and Vertonghen struggling with injuries, he will be competition with Kyle Naughton for a start and could well get the nod at Old Trafford tomorrow night.
Sherwood has also stated that he will not look to bring in a lot of new faces in the January transfer window and will instead trust young players like Fryers to deputise.
As such, it is a big six months for the ex-Manchester United man, who could well make a name for himself with a strong performance against his former employers on Wednesday night.
