Shaq Coulthirst returns from loan at Leyton Orient

Stu Forster

Welcome back, Shaq. Now go away again.

Shaquille Coulthirst is back at White Hart Lane. Leyton Orient opted to let the 19-year-old striker return to Tottenham Hotspur, leaving him without a a club where he figures to get playing time in the near future.

Coulthirst spent the last month at Orient and made two appearances, scoring his first senior team goal, but David Mooney has returned from injury and Chris Dagnall has been signed so Coulthirst wasn't going to play much anymore. Without playing time, there was no reason for Coulthirst to stay with Orient.

It's possible, and even likely, that Coulthirst will go on loan elsewhere now. While Tim Sherwood has shown that he will play young players, Harry Kane has had enough trouble getting playing time and, by all accounts, he is far more advanced than Coulthirst. If Kane can't get playing time, Coulthirst certainly won't.

Reviews of Coulthirst at Orient were pretty positive. He wasn't a dominant player, but he showed good athleticism and can make an impact at that level so a loan to a different League 1 club seems like a good fit. At this point, anywhere he can get on the field with regularity will do.
