Time to consider options?
Reports in Greece, claim website IMScouting.com, suggest Olympiakos plan to offer Tottenham’s Giovani Dos Santos an escape route on loan – but they face competition from Turkish rivals Besiktas who are keen on the Mexican misfit. (Daily Mail)
It appears that the Greek side Olympiakos are only interested in a loan deal for the young Mexican but the Turkish outfit Besiktas would be interested in signing the £6m attacker on a permanent deal, perhaps Harry Redknapp is better off opting to send the former Barcelona man out on loan because the 20 year old has undoubted potential but could well suffer the fate of a good many Tottenham players who were at the club prior to the former Pompey manager’s arrival.
The Turkish champions have had an average start to their season and have the Champions League to look forward to and appear to have some cash to splash having already snapped up the excellent Nihat from Villarreal.
Giovani had a stunningly successful impact when playing for his national side at the Gold Cup he was voted the player of the tournament but he still seems some way off adding to his two Premier League starts.
In many ways Spurs could benefit more from the talented youngster going out on loan to another English club so he can better get used to his surroundings, his spell at Ipswich Town was a success and if Harry can find a home for him at a lower level Premier League club then it may suit the club more. However if Besiktas put in a decent offer Redknapp may feel the time is right to cut his losses.
