Tottenham Hotspur to Schedule the Fullback’s Medical
Tottenham Hotspur are prepared to schedule a medical for Destiny Udogie in the next few days. The fullback is likely to sign a five-year deal as a Spurs player which will include him remaining at Udinese on loan for the 2022/23 campaign.
The 19-year-old played 35 games for Udinese last season, helping the Serie A team to a mid-table, 12th-placed finish. While back on loan there, Udogie should be a guaranteed starter in this solid team. The Italian outfit will be glad to keep the youngster for a further season, whilst Spurs will monitor the experience he is gaining.
Deal benefits both teams
The deal will represent a great transaction for both sides. Spurs get a new young defender, who will gain more senior experience by staying in Italy in a familiar environment. A rising star, the youngster is an exciting prospect for the Premier League, and by the time Udogie is ready to return to Spurs in the 2023/2024 season, he will be much more experienced and just what Spurs are looking for.
Udogie will join a list of summer signings the London club has made. With five permanent deals, and one player on loan from Barcelona Spurs have had a very good window so far. So long as Udogie passes his medical, he will be a Spurs player on loan to Udinese this season.
Although the Italian, who fans believe will represent a “brilliant signing”, had interest from other clubs, Spurs have now won the race for his signature. Premier League football usually attracts young stars who are eager to play in the top flight, and Udogie is no exception. The full-back will bide his time in Italy and then make the move to England next season.
