Reporter claims ‘most disappointing signing’ of summer could be snubbed by Conte this season

According to journalist Dean Jones, Tottenham Hotspur manager Antonio Conte is likely to snub summer signing Djed Spence this season.

The Lilywhites signed the 22-year-old in the summer, with talkSPORT reporter Alex Crook even calling him the ‘perfect player’ for Conte despite the Italian claiming ‘it wasn’t a signing he wanted to make’.

And in the first six Premier League games of 2022/23, the Englishman has featured just one minute of top-flight action, with the manager heavily favoring Emerson Royal for the right-back position.

And Dean Jones thinks Spence could be at the end of a Conte snub. He told GIVEMESPORT:

“I would say the most disappointing signing might be Spence because I just don’t see him featuring.

“There’s been a pretty big build up to his arrival, but he’s only played a minute so far, and Spurs have even considered bringing in an extra player in his place as the weather gets tighter. was flowing.”

The 22-year-old was one of Nottingham Forest’s finest performers during his time at the City Ground, playing a key role in promoting the club to the top flight, starting 41 games.

However, Spence has plenty of time to prove his worth for Conte bearing in mind that a hectic few months are coming with the Champions League group stage starting this week. If Conte decides to give the youngster a streak, he’ll have to seize the opportunity.
