We have our first report of an outgoing Tottenham Hotspur player! Spurs are sending Slovakian development squad player Filip Lesniak out on loan to the Czech Republic.
Filip Lesniak has joined Czech side Slovan Liberec on loan until January, subject to international clearance. pic.twitter.com/GXR0ejagKi— Tottenham Hotspur (@SpursOfficial) July 12, 2016
Spurs bought Lesniak back in 2012 from FC VSS Kosice. He started his Tottenham career as an attacking midfielder but has been repurposed as as a holding midfielder the past few years. Still 20, he has yet to make his full Tottenham debut, though he’s been a fixture on Spurs’ U21 side for the past couple of seasons. We rated him as an honorable mention in last summer’s Tottenham Hotspur Prospect Rankings.
Slovan Liberec is one of the larger clubs in the Czech Republic, so this is probably a good move for Lesniak and will give him a chance to hopefully get a lot of first team minutes. Lesniak probably doesn’t have a long-term future at Spurs, but a good showing on loan might propel him forward and allow the club to flip him for a profit in a year or so.
