Truths: Summer 2021/22

Etete, who moved to north London from Notts County in 2019, is currently on loan at League One side Cheltenham Town.

Labeled ‘excellent’ by Harry Kewell, the 20-year-old has contributed five goals in nine games.

Etete has spent the first half of the current campaign with League Two side Northampton Town, where he has scored six times, and it looks like his natural progression will continue in the Championship next season.

The Latest: Source sharing discussions

Football Insider, who was briefed by a Spurs source, shared a story about Etete on Thursday afternoon.

They revealed Tottenham are lining up another loan move for the striker this summer and have already held talks with a Championship side ahead of a potential early deal.

The verdict: logical…

Etete seems to be progressing well in the Football League, so a move to the second tier might just be the right choice.

What matters most, however, is that Etete, who shares the same agent as Ryan Sessegnon, is playing consistently, as he has been this term.

Spurs have reportedly been furious with Charlton Athletic’s handling of young midfielder Nile John, so if regular minutes in the Championship can be guaranteed for Etete, an early deal could be a smart move.
