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.
