Tottenham midfield prodigy Alfie Devine is set to leave the club on loan as soon as the January transfer window opens.

According to Football Insider, Alfie Devine is close to leaving Tottenham on loan as soon as the January transfer window opens. The north Londoners are keen to provide the 18-year-old a platform to flourish elsewhere and learn by playing regularly at the first-team level.

Alfie Devine’s career has been closely monitored by plenty of personnel in the media since he made a senior debut with Tottenham in 2021, becoming their youngest-ever debutant. There is plenty of promise in the midfield prodigy’s talents.

The midfield sensation is among the most exciting youngsters the club’s academy has produced over the years. Hence, there is some standard they want before he plays for the first team regularly. Devine lacks the sharpness of many senior players. But more so, they feel he is ready to upgrade from the Under-21 level.

Tottenham were already thinking about sending Devine out on loan a while ago. And talks could accelerate with interested parties in the coming weeks. Spurs do not want to waste too much time with negotiations, as they seek a second division where Devine can play regularly.

It is pointless to send the player out on loan to a side where he will sit on the bench regularly and only learn in moments. The idea is to get him up to speed with regular football on the pitch and improve his standing. The names of interested clubs are yet to come out. But a few from the Championship could come forward for the Tottenham midfield prodigy.

Devine started the current season injured and has played for various youth sides since returning. He has three goals and one assist in the process. On the pitch, the Tottenham midfield prodigy is versatile and capable of playing multiple roles.

Devine can play as a box-to-box midfielder. But his foremost talent lies in the advanced role behind the striker. He can take up other attacking positions and has even taken up the centre-forward role.

In today’s climate, Devine has little to no chance of getting anywhere near Antonio Conte’s first team. The Italian manager vehemently prefers to use only senior players, as young stars like Bryan Gill continue to struggle and are looking for a loan move amid interested from Spanish clubs.

Devine’s future at the club will become apparent after a few loan spells, as the one in January is only a stepping stone. With injuries hampering his progress and stagnating his development at Tottenham, his ability to prove otherwise will go a long way in becoming a future regular in the first team.
