‘We’ll see’ – Tottenham Hotspur loan man on chances of EFL return in the summer

Doncaster Rovers loanee Matthew Craig is open to a return next season from Tottenham Hotspur.

Doncaster Rovers swooped to sign the midfielder on a temporary basis in the January transfer window.

Craig, 20, has since made 10 appearances for the League Two side.

When asked whether he would be interested in a second spell with the Yorkshire club, he said, as per a report by The Yorkshire Post: “Yeah – I’ve really liked it here. I think at the end of the season, we’ll see what Spurs say as well. So far, I’ve really enjoyed my time here.

“I’ve loved it – I’ve loved every minute. Being able to come here, and being able to experience senior football, is something which I’ve really enjoyed. You see games within the league and you can’t wait to get out and play.”

Doncaster Rovers loan man open to return

Craig’s fate ultimately lies in the hands of Tottenham at the end of this campaign.

His time at Doncaster has worked out well for him so far and he is getting plenty of game time.

A move back there would make sense as he already knows their manager Grant McCann and all the players. However, his parent club may want to keep hold of him or test him at a higher level.

Craig has been on the books at Spurs since 2015 after linking up with them from Watford.

The teenager, who is a Scotland youth international, has risen up through the ranks at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium and has represented the London outfit at various different levels over recent years.

Craig was handed his first professional contract back in 2021 and his deal was extended last summer until 2026.

The Barnet-born man made his senior debut last year May in a league fixture against Leeds United and that is his first and only Spurs appearance to date.

He has injected more competition and depth into Doncaster’s midfield department and has made a positive impression.

McCann’s men are back in action tomorrow with an away clash against Crawley Town. They then face Wrexham at home next Tuesday.
