Luton Town considering loan swoop for Tottenham’s Japhet Tanganga

Luton Town considering loan swoop for Tottenham's Japhet Tanganga

Premier League newcomers Luton Town have reached out to Tottenham Hotspur to enquire about the possibility of signing defender Japhet Tanganga, according to Sky Sports.

Tanganga is one of several players Spurs are looking to cut loose before the transfer window closes, and the Hatters have asked for information regarding the conditions of a deal.

Town are hoping to borrow the 24-year-old centre-half for the 2023/24 campaign, but Spurs would rather sanction a permanent transfer despite their willingness to listen to offers.

The Englishman has two years left to run on his contract at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, but his future at the club is non-existent.

Spurs have added five new faces to Ange Postecoglou’s squad this summer, but the Australian manager will welcome further reinforcements from the transfer market.

However, they will need to move on some of their deadwood to free up space in the squad, with Postecoglou already having to deal with a crowded locker room.

Tanganga has struggled to nail down regular playing time at Tottenham despite coming through the youth ranks at the club.

Spurs breezed through three managers who heavily favoured a three-at-the-back system last term, yet Tanganga only managed four Premier League appearances.

While Postecoglou’s appointment has brought a renewed sense of optimism at Spurs, it has also signalled the end of Tanganga’s dreadful spell at the capital club.

The ex-Celtic tactician has no place for Tanganga in his long-term plans, and a move away from Spurs could be what he needs to relaunch his career.

Despite his underwhelming spell with Spurs, Tanganga still has a few admirers across Europe, with Galatasaray and Inter Milan also keeping tabs on his situation.

Unlike Town, both clubs can offer the Englishman a chance to feature in the Champions League, but they are yet to formalise their interest in the defender.

Luton have made an astonishing ten new signings in the summer transfer window, but it made no difference in their 4-1 defeat to Brighton & Hove Albion last weekend.
