Tottenham Hotspur keeps finding ways to develop players, and by sending yet another youngster on loan, its clear that Spurs are looking at the future. 

The team has confirmed Jamie Bowden has joined League Two side Oldham Athletic on loan for the 2021/22 season.

The 20-year-old central midfielder has made top performances while playing at the Spurs academy the last couple of years. Last season, Bowden made 15 appearances for Tottenham's Under-23s, scoring twice.


He was also named as a substitute under Jose Mourinho in the first leg of the UEFA Europa League round of 32 tie away to Wolfsberger AC in February 2021. 

Bowden joins Troy Parrott and Kion Etete as the Spurs players who have been sent on loan this season. 

Although the Europa Conference League group stage will potentially provide opportunities for young players to gain first team experience, that will be just for a selected few, while others like Bowden will have to get senior team minutes elsewhere. 

Jamie Bowden has been heavily involved with the first team over the past couple of seasons, and although he hasn't made his official debut yet, he has made some first team pre season appearances. 

Cleaning the house

Managing director Fabio Paratici and head coach Nuno Espírito Santo are not playing around, and are making sure everyone is where they need to be before the Premier League season begins. 

Recently, the 20-year-old Spurs academy defender Jubril Okedina was dealt to League One side, Cambridge United on a permanent transfer. 

He is not the only one, considering left-back academy player, Dennis Cirkin will most likely leave the Club before the season starts, with Sunderland being a potential landing spot.
