New deal for Tottenham’s Anthony Georgiou as he heads to Ipswich on loan

It appears to be send-the-kids-out-on-loan day at Tottenham Hotspur! Left sided midfielder/emergency fullback Anthony Georgiou is the latest recipient of this flood of late transfer action — Spurs have announced on social media that Georgiou has extended his contract at the club for another year and is also heading to Ipswich Town on loan.

Georgiou has been hanging around the fringes of Tottenham’s first team for what feels like a decade now, but he’s only 22. However, he’s managed to get some first team action in the past few years, including a Champions League cameo against APOEL a couple of seasons ago. That was significant, as Georgiou comes from a Cypriot heritage. Georgiou also served as Tottenham’s only actual left back during their summer preseason tour to Asia as Ben Davies recovered from injury and Danny Rose looked for a new club. He has not, however, made his Premier League debut.

There doesn’t appear to be a market for Anthony right now, so I guess a quick one-season contract extension and a loan to a League One club makes the most sense. If he plays well, maybe a club at that level might come in for him next summer. Here’s hoping — despite actually getting first team minutes for the club there doesn’t really seem to be a path to the starting XI or the bench for him unless there’s a SERIOUS injury crisis.

Good luck to him!
