The Mail report Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Tashan Oakley-Boothe is wanted by Leeds United.

Swansea City, Derby County and Huddersfield are all claimed to be interested.

A loan move is ideal for Oakley-Boothe at this point, after making slow progress over the past two seasons.

 

Oakley-Boothe was a key part of England's under-17 World Cup winning side two years ago, which also featured Jadon Sancho.

Oakley-Boothe has made one Spurs appearance as a substitute in the EFL Cup, and played in pre-season games, but that's as far as he has come to the first team.

Last season he was not in contention, and has been overtaken by Oliver Skipp. With Spurs strengthening in midfield, his path looks blocked.

A move on loan to Leeds could be the making off him.

Manager Marcelo Bielsa is famed around the world for his tactical approach and Spurs manager Mauricio Pochettino is one of his former players, using many of his mentor's principles.

Oakley-Boothe would not be able to walk into the Leeds team, but he would stand a better chance of fighting his way into their XI.

Getting a chance to play competitive football can speed up his development, and both sides should consider getting this deal for the 19-year-old done.
