We’re expecting a couple of transfer-related announcements today. This isn’t the big one we’re waiting for, but it’s newsworthy regardless. Tottenham Hotspur have confirmed previous reports from academy-watchers that indicated that 22-year old development squad midfielder Luke Amos is heading to QPR on a season-long loan.
Amos had a rough 2018-19 season. He was tapped as one of the development squad players to be taken along on Spurs’ preseason tour last year. He impressed in those matches and looked to be the next Spurs player to make his first team debut, before picking up an injury that left him out of action for the majority of last season.
QPR are now managed by Mark Warburton, who was recently the manager at Rangers. The club has a good relationship with Warburton — while he was in Scotland, he secured past loans for Dominic Ball (now with Rotherham) and Nathan Oduwa (now with Hapoel Hadera). Former Spurs academy graduate Dylan Duncan, who was released by Spurs this summer, has already joined Warburton at QPR.
This is a good loan for Amos — he’s at the age where he needs regular first team minutes if he’s going to make it as a professional footballer. Hopefully he’ll get them in the Championship this season.
