Mauricio Pochettino has confirmed Tottenham included recall clauses in the loan deals of Josh Onomah and Cameron Carter-Vickers.
Onomah is set to spend the rest of the season on loan at Aston Villa, while Carter-Vickers is currently with Sheffield United.
But Pochettino has suggested both players could be recalled in January, telling reporters: “We have the possibility to bring them back.”
Spurs have struggled with injuries and suspensions in recent weeks – Eric Dier and Jan Vertonghen are the only centre-backs available for the next two matches.
Depending on Toby Alderweireld’s recovery, there’s a chance Carter-Vickers will return to the club out of necessity. Onomah perhaps isn’t as desperately needed.
