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.



  1. I believe Foyth could step up in Toby’s absence for the Brighton game, but he’s not ready for
    the City onslaught on Saturday.

    • Even Dier is not ready for that!

      We are gonna have to play a back 4 with defensive fullbacks and rely on the width to come from our attacking players, or play though the middle.
