Rob Mackenzie is announced to be leaving Spurs for a new post at Derby County and they were immediately linked with a move for Alex Pritchard. He went to Norwich City for the same fee we have agreed Ryan Mason can go to Sunderland, or Hull City if that falls through.
Tom Carroll is the next to be linked with strong rumours that he is to move to the Championship side. Again Pochettino feels he is a good character to have around the club at Tottenham but he won't get that much game time and would be spending most of it on the bench, if he gets that far.
For the sake of his own career he needs to move and get himself regular football. In my view he should have gone to Ajaz on loan when Christian Eriksen came to White Hart Lane, they wanted him and he turned them down. His career hasn't moved forward since, it can't, he simply doesn't play enough.
A move to Derby County may well be a good fit for him.
