Tottenham Hotspur could allow Lucas Moura to seal a January exit after blocking potential loan departures late in the summer transfer window, according to Pete O’Rourke. He said: “There’s a real chance that he could possibly leave. Lucas Moura has been a good player for Tottenham in fits and bursts, but he has maybe not been as consistent as he possibly could be for some Tottenham fans. There was interest in him later on in the transfer window, with Aston Villa and Newcastle keen on him, but Tottenham blocked those loan moves.” (GIVEMESPORT)
