Jonathan Obika is the latest of our youngsters to be farmed out on loan and will now be playing at Swindon Town for the rest of the season.

This will be his third loan club this year after spending time at Crystal Palace and Peterborough, where he scored in his only appearance.

With Spurs out of the domestic cup competitions, which seemed a low priority, it seemed unlikely, to say the least that Jon would feature for the first team this season, so he continues his quest for first team football elsewhere.

Despite his 100% record for Peterborough, his record in the lower leagues is around a goal every four games. He is still only 20 and has time to develop, but maybe the time is approaching to make a permanent decision on his future.



  1. Exactly. Being 20 means that next season is make or break as it is the last one where he does not need to be registered as a squad player. I am seen him in person once in the friendly vs Bournemouth. He scored, but he could hardly miss. Not much to go on, but he seemed slower than I thought he was. I believe that he will be another one to go down a division and then hit the Premiership in his late twenties with some team.
