Tottenham now have 12 players out on loan but there could still be more heading out of the door to join them before the January transfer window closes.

Spurs have a remarkable number of players out on loan but remain within the limitations as they are allowed a maximum of seven players out on international loans at any given time during the season and what is essentially an unlimited amount of domestic loans out of the club.

So who else could join those Tottenham players already out of Ange Postecoglou‘s squad with a loan switch to another club. Here are some of the possible candidates within the walls of Hotspur Way.

Bryan Gil

It wouldn’t be a transfer window if Bryan Gil wasn’t linked with a move somewhere. It would seem odd at this point to send the 22-year-old on yet another loan move though.

The Spaniard wants to fight for his place at Tottenham but opportunities could become limited with the arrival of Timo Werner from RB Leipzig. Spurs would likely want a permanent deal if he were to leave this month, which could potentially mean a loan with an obligation to buy but Gil might have other ideas about that and injuries to others might keep him in contention.

Ryan Sessegnon

Much depends on Sessegnon’s fitness and whether Postecoglou feels he is better served as a back-up for the left-back spot than heading out. The 23-year-old returned to action against Burnley in the FA Cup after 11 months without playing a game due to the hamstring problems that required surgery in the summer and he picked up a little niggle after putting his body back into the rigours of the game.

Postecoglou said it was only a little problem that meant he missed the draw at Manchester United so he should be available for the coming matches.

The question for the Australian is whether with Ben Davies out for around a month with a hamstring injury, he needs Sessegnon around to cover Destiny Udogie on the left. A loan move and some regular football did rejuvenate the young full-back though a couple of seasons ago when he played for Hoffenheim in the Bundesliga for the whole campaign.

Alfie Whiteman

Back from that unfortunate ankle injury suffered during pre-season, Whiteman could do with a loan move if one can be found. Spurs already have three other keepers in Guglielmo Vicario, Fraser Forster and Brandon Austin on the first team books so the 25-year-old would able to move on another loan.

He’s had two previous spells at Swedish side Degerfors and at this stage of his career, like Austin, he needs to be playing regular football somewhere.

Jude Soonsup-Bell

The 20-year-old forward has enjoyed a fine season for Spurs’ table-topping U21s so far with nine goals and five assists in 13 appearances for Wayne Burnett’s side, after an injury ended his last campaign prematurely.

When the attacker arrived from Chelsea a year ago it was with the plan that he would get some time out on loan so that could well happen this month if the club can find the right move him.

Yago Santiago

Another 20-year-old doing well for the U21s with six goals and four assists in nine Premier League 2 matches on the left wing. Santiago has been rewarded for his form with a place on Postecoglou’s bench three times in the Premier League.

He’s a direct winger with plenty of ability on the ball and if a loan opportunity presents itself then Tottenham might just look to further his development, even if it would leave Burnett without an important attacker in his team.

Will Lankshear

Another attacking player who might just be hoping a loan comes his way this month. Lankshear is only 18 but has been on fire for the U21s this season with 10 goals and two assists in 12 matches.

Spurs might not want to lose both Soonsup-Bell and Lankshear in one fell swoop from the high-flying U21s this window so it might be the younger man who sticks around but it all depends on what offers come in for the pair.

Nile John

The 20-year-old has played a couple of times for Spurs’ first team in the past but, despite training with Postecoglou’s men at times this season, the pathway to even a spot on the bench still looks a long one.
