‘I don’t really care’ – Millwall loan favourite quizzed on Tottenham Hotspur future

Millwall loan man Japhet Tanganga is showing no interest in his Tottenham Hotspur future yet with his full focus on matters at The Den as it stands.

Millwall recruited defender Tanganga from Tottenham Hotspur in January. The loan deal runs until the end of the season and has given the 24-year-old the chance to play week in, week out.

He’s had some struggles with injury in recent times and that contributed to him spending half the season on loan with Augsburg without playing once. However, since moving to The Den, Tanganga has locked down a starting spot and found impressive form.

The Spurs loanee has started all four games under Neil Harris, helping the Lions go unbeaten in the process. He’s even chipped in with two winning goals in that run having never scored a senior goal prior.

Such form has led to questions over his future, but Tanganga is not being drawn on the matter. When quizzed on his Tottenham Hotspur transfer fate ahead of the summer, the London-born centre-back told the South London Press:

“I haven’t played a lot of football in a while, so that is my main focus. I got the chance to come to Millwall and do that.

“Whatever happens in the summer or later on, in a way I don’t really care about it – because I am focusing on now, Millwall and getting the points we need to do as well as we can in the league.”

Who is this?

Buying into the fight

Tanganga hadn’t played below the top-flight of English football before this season. It’s a level he had proven himself and played regularly at previously too, so eyebrows were raised when he dropped to the Championship.

However, it has been such a valuable move for the centre-back. Joining Millwall has allowed him to play regularly again and he’s given everyone a reminder of what he’s capable of.

Lions boss Harris recently spoke of how Tanganga was ‘buying into’ the fighting mentality at The Den amid their relegation danger. The defender’s own words only back up the manager’s words, with his full focus on securing the club’s Championship status rather than what the summer could hold.

His transfer fate will be decided at a later date one would think. Once his loan comes to an end, he’ll be back with Tottenham Hotspur and approaching the last 12 months of his contract with the club.
