Report: Tomislav Gomelt wanted by Bari, but not permanently for now

The Tottenham Hotspur youngster spent last season on loan at Bari.

Tottenham have proven themselves in recent times to be great developers of young talent. The likes of Harry Kane, Andros Townsend, Nabil Bentaleb and Ryan Mason are testament to that fact.

But not all of them make it at the club and it is looking increasingly likely that one man who won't is Tomislav Gomelt.

The Croatian youngster joined the club in 2012 from NK Zagreb and has spent time on loan at Espanyol B and Royal Antwerp.

Last season the 20-year-old was at Italian side Bari, with a view to a permanent move.

He did not exactly shine at the Italian club, playing just six games throughout the campaign. He played four games in December of last year but then didn't play until May.

Now it is being reported that Bari want the player again next season, but are not willing to pay for him. Tutto Mercato Web is reporting that Bari want the player, but are not willing to splash out the £500,000 to get him permanently. Instead they want him on loan for another season.

Should Spurs loan him out again?

It certainly cannot do any harm. Gomelt does not look likely to be one who breaks through to the Spurs first-team at this moment in time.

Therefore, another year in Italy could see him, hopefully, get more game time and improve as a player.
