Zeki Fryers won't get a loan

Paul Gilham

Zeki Fryers would probably benefit from a Championship loan. Tim Sherwood disagrees. How do we feel about htis?

Zeki Fryers isn't getting a ton of playing time with Tottenham Hotspur, but has probably outgrown the Under-21s. Spurs are currently looking pretty healthy along the backline, so it might be useful for Fryers to get a short-term loan to a Championship club, right?

Well, Tim Sherwood doesn't seem to think so. According to The Mirror, Zeki has had chances to go out on loan, but Sherwood wants to keep him around for cover. Here's the relevant text.

A handful of second tier clubs are keen on the former Manchester United kid, but Sherwood wants to keep him.

Fryers, 21, looks set to get back into the side for the Europa League games and Sherwood sees him as vital to the squad.

Presumably, this means that Zeki will get his shot to start against Dnipro in the Europa League, which will be great experience for him. The prospect of Fryers and Kyle Naughton at fullbacks against a team that features Yevhen Konoplyanka is a bit terrifying, but hey, at least he'll be getting a challenge.

It's possible that Sherwood could change his tone on this if Spurs go out against Dnipro, but for now, Zeki is staying put. Is this what's best for his career?
