Tottenham are now open to letting him depart on loan in January. They believe a spell at one of the EFL clubs could help him develop better and then make a decision in the summer.

Many clubs are reportedly keen on taking him, although the Tottenham midfield sensation alongside the club will take a collective decision. The idea is to give him to a club where Devine could regularly feature, not necessarily from the start.

Devine’s constant appearances for Tottenham’s youth team may have stagnated his development. Although a spell away in a new atmosphere could revive the talent and his hunger to grow.

There are no specific offers yet; at least, those are not reported in the media. However, many Championship and League One sides could come in with proposals, and Spurs could send him out as soon as January 1st.
