There’s an isolated report today that claims Spurs are ready to loan out Iago Falque for the second half of the 2012-13 season. It’s been a decent campaign for the 23 year old Spaniard but after making his first league appearance for the club, Falque has drifted back to the fringes of the squad.

Midfield is a crowded area as we know and at present, Iago looks to be behind all the regular first team squad members, together with the likes of Andros Townsend and Tom Carroll. It’s a battle just to get onto the substitute’s bench.

At 23, Falque is at an age where Spurs could take the opportunity to loan the player out to another Premier league side. The danger of course is that the Spaniard ends up with another pointless spell at another club – similar to the one he endured at Southampton last season.

His fleeting appearances in a Spurs shirt drew admiring comments from Tottenham fans earlier this campaign but is it finally time we found out what Iago Falque is capable of – even if it’s at another Premiership side for the time being?



  1. The problem we seem to be having is that too many players are coming of age too quickly. Jake Livermore, Andros Townsend, Kyle Naughton, Steven Caulker, Tom Carroll, etc. If we loan them out too often, it tells them that their future is elsewhere. I think if we could get Falque to Norwich City, Wigan Athletic, etc, then yes, on this occasion.

  2. He has to go on loan to a lower Prem club but needs to play unfortunately not every player makes it and for me unfortunately i dont see a future for him at 23

  3. If he is to go out on loan then it has to be in the premier league, Caulker, Walker and Naughton are all now first team regulars, also Danny Rose has increased his stock at Sunderland.

  4. As has been said, only a loan to a PL side will do. He needs playing time at this level, no point sending him to the lower leagues. If we can’t do anything then we should keep him here and try to involve him a bit more, I like him and he has a lot of talent.
