Tottenham loan watch week 12: Trio struggle as Ndombele helps Napoli continue winning run

How those away from the Lilywhites got on


Just 5 of Tottenham’s 8 loanees were in action over the weekend across six different divisions, which can be hard to keep track of.

Fortunately, 101 have done the hard work for you. Here is how each of them got on.

Destiny Udogie (Udinese)

Udogie played 90 minutes at left wing-back for Udinese, but could not help them find the winner as they were held to a 0-0 draw away at Cremonese, a result that has seen them drop out of the places for European football and 10 points off the Serie A title pace.

Troy Parrott (Preston North End)

Parrott is expected to be sidelined until after the World Cup after picking up an injury at the beginning of the month against Norwich.

Joe Rodon (Stade Rennais)

The Welsh defender played 90 minutes as his side suffered a late collapse in the Europa League, throwing away a 3-1 lead to draw 3-3 with Turkish giants Fenerbahce in midweek.

Rodon was an unused substitute three days later, however, as Rennes continued their strong Ligue 1 form with a 3-0 win over Montpellier, taking them up to third in the French top flight.

Dane Scarlett (Portsmouth)

Scarlett played 80 minutes for Portsmouth but could not make the difference as they were held to a 1-1 draw by midtable Shrewsbury Town.

Tanguy Ndombele (Napoli)

The Frenchman played 90 minutes as Napoli confirmed their progression in the Champions League with a 3-0 win over Rangers, and was given a second-half cameo in their 4-0 hammering of Sassuolo in Serie A three days later.

Alfie Whiteman (Degerfors)

Whiteman was an unused substitute as his Degerfors side drew 0-0 against IFK Varnamo.

Giovani Lo Celso (Villareal)

Lo Celso’s gametime this week was limited to just two cameo appearances from the bench. The Argentine played the final 19 minutes as Villarreal drew 2-2 with Hapoel Beer Sheva in the Europa Conference League. Three days later, he played the final 25 minutes as the Yellow Submarine fell to a 1-0 defeat at the hands of Atletic Club.

It is unclear how much Lo Celso features in new boss Quique Setien’s plans, but it has been an inauspicious start for the midfielder.

Harry Winks (Sampdoria)

Winks is still waiting to make his Sampdoria debut, with the Englishman still struggling with an ankle injury, which could see him ruled out until after the World Cup.
