QPR and West Brom target Dilan Markanday is expected to sign a new contract with Spurs before making a loan move in January, it has been claimed.
Dilan Markanday’s impressive form for Spurs’ U23s has seen him linked with a whole host of clubs ahead of January.
QPR, West Brom, Bournemouth, Celtic and Rangers were all said to be keen in a report from the Evening Standard. Sky Sports (live transfer blog, 30.11.21, 17.18) also stated Nottingham Forest and Stoke City are interested too.
Wenham stated that he believes rumours of a permanent move is down to the player’s agent, saying he “fully” expects Markanday to put pen to paper on a new deal before making a loan move in January.
After speaking of Markanday’s recent development and dismissing chances of a permanent switch, he said:
“Any links with a permanent move are hard to believe, as I said I think it’s just the agent doing his job.
“I fully expect Markanday to sign a new contract before heading out on loan in January.”
Markanday’s season so far
The 2021/22 campaign has been a great one for Markanday so far.
He has netted 11 goals and laid on seven assists in 16 games for Spurs’ U23s. Not only that, but Markanday made his first-team debut in the Europa Conference League too, in turn becoming the first British-Asian to play for Spurs.
Markanday has displayed his attacking versatility as well, playing on either the left or right-wing, through the middle as a striker and slightly deeper as an attacking midfielder too.
