Report: Anthony Georgiou set to go away Tottenham this month
Tottenham Hotspur will approve the exit of winger Anthony Georgiou this week, according to reports from Football London.
The deal is expected to be closed soon and the player is ready to make a permanent move to Cypriot team AEL Limassol over the next few days.
He has been with the club for eight years since moving from Watford in 2013. He made his first-team debut under former Spurs manager Mauricio Pochettino, but failed due to a single appearance in the Premier League.
The seven-time international of Cyprus came as a substitute for APOEL Nicosia in the Champions League and has had several loans in Bolton and Ipswich Town in recent years.
Georgiou isn’t in Jose Mourinho’s plans and he’s too old to play at Spurs academy football.
The report claims the winger’s contract will expire this summer and a final move from the club is expected shortly.
He is a versatile winger who can also play as a left-back. He needs regular playing time and moving to his home country Cyprus makes a lot of sense.
It will give him a chance to revive his career and it will hopefully help him secure a promotion to the top leagues in Europe in the future.
Spurs could also look to retire Gedson Fernandes, Paulo Gazzaniga and Danny Rose this month, while Dele Alli’s future at the club is also uncertain.
