Tottenham academy ace makes huge impression on loan as Villarreal takes blow from Juan Foyth
Once again, there has been quite a bit of movement at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium in terms of loaned players for the season.
With a number of individuals struggling for various reasons last season, Jose Mourinho and his coaching staff are hoping for better luck this time around.
Troy Parrott is one who spends the campaign away from the club, with Oliver Skipp also doing the same as he seeks to put himself in the best possible position to become a Spurs regular for years to come.
But how are they doing now? football.london have a look.
Ryan Sessegnon (Hoffenheim)
Things are now starting to improve for Sessegnon in the Bundesliga after playing regularly for Hoffenheim over the past week.
Having initially had to settle for a place on the bench for his first two league games since joining the German squad, he played the full 90 minutes in the team’s last two Bundesliga matches against the ‘Union Berlin and Wolfsburg.
However, he was an unused substitute Thursday night in the Europa League as his side beat Slovan Liberec 5-0 at home to make them three spin wins in Europe.
Sessegnon has played as a left winger mainly for Hoffenheim and he hopes to show Mourinho he’s really serious before returning to N17 this summer.
Juan Foyth (Villarreal)
Foyth unfortunately had to keep a close watch on Villarreal’s last games due to a muscle injury.
Making a good impression on his full debut for the Yellow Submarines with a goal and an assist in the 5-3 Europa League win over Sivasspor, he has only made two appearances since for Unai Emery’s men. .
His injury has limited him to just four minutes of La Liga action since his transfer and that will be something he will seek to correct once league football resumes later this month.
Foyth’s injury means he is not making the Argentina squad for their upcoming World Cup qualifiers against Paraguay and Peru.
Oliver Skipp (Norwich City)
One player who has really excelled on loan this quarter is Skipp.
Amid the reported interest from Premier League clubs in his services, the England Under-21 international has chosen to travel to the league to bond with Norwich City.
He has so far received rave reviews at Carrow Road and is a regular with Daniel Farke’s side having started all 11 league games.
Skipp played the full game on Saturday, beating Swansea City 1-0 to continue their climb in the standings and move one point behind leaders Reading.
Troy Parrott (Millwall)
Parrott’s loan transfer across the capital just isn’t going at all for both parties at the moment.
An ankle injury is the reason he has only played 45 minutes this term, but he should be available for selection once Millwall returns to the league next Saturday against Cardiff City.
The leader is part of the Republic of Ireland’s Under-21 squad for their games next week and Lions boss Gary Rowett has indicated his minutes will need to be managed.
“Ireland have played two games and they said they agreed that it would probably be wise for them not to play more than 45 minutes in either game,” said said the boss of the Lions. NewsatDen.
“We hope that if he manages to get through all he can do in terms of minutes and train there, he will come back in a position to be involved.
“Let him start early [for Millwall] will depend on how he fares for Ireland. He hasn’t played much football and we don’t want to rush him.
“But it would be nice to have it available in games like this where you just need something to open the game.”
Cameron Carter Vickers (Bournemouth)
Carter-Vickers will have to wait a little longer to make his Bournemouth debut having not been included in the squad for Saturday’s 3-1 win at Birmingham City.
On loan from Spurs last month, the center-back tried to develop his physical form in order to participate in Jason Tindall’s Round 18.
Carter-Vickers is not making the United States squad for this month’s international games, so he now has a good week to impress his boss ahead of the home game against Reading.
TJ Eyoma (Lincoln City)
Eyoma’s loan to Lincoln City has been a resounding success so far.
The defenseman has made a total of 16 appearances for the Imps this campaign, with starts in all 11 league games for Michael Appleton’s side.
Used primarily as a right-back but also at the heart of defense on occasion, Eyoma gets the minutes he desperately needs to attempt to succeed at Tottenham under Mourinho in the not too distant future.
Jack Roles (Burton Albion)
Roles was back on the pitch this weekend as he made the final stages of Burton Albion’s FA Cup loss to Barnet, the National League team.
Impressive during his time at Cambridge United in the last campaign, the midfielder has barely appeared for the League One side this term and has at times missed the team altogether.
Hull City are next on the Brewers’ league agenda this weekend and the loaned Tottenham player is hoping he has done enough to get involved.
Shilow Tracey (Town of Shrewsbury)
Tracey is another player who has struggled for minutes this quarter since joining League One team Shrewsbury Town.
Playing a total of 17 minutes in the league so far, the loaned player was not even in the squad of the day this weekend for the team’s FA Cup victory over Cambridge United.
Kazaiah Sterling (Southend United)
Sterling already doubled his appearances last season after appearing in eight games for Southend this term.
He went into overtime this weekend for their FA Cup loss to Boreham Wood, but unfortunately didn’t have a chance to shoot a penalty as they withdrew from the competition after a 4-3 shootout loss .

The leader is still looking for his first goal at Southend, but I hope the wait doesn’t last longer.
Joshua Oluwayemi (Maidenhead United)
Oluwayemi is still waiting to make his first appearance for the Maidenhead National League team since leaving Tottenham on loan.
He’s been an unused substitute on the bench three times and it looks like he has a big job to do to try and get a few minutes under his belt.
