Slovenian Champions Olimpija Ljubljana, who play in the Slovenian Prva Liga want to sign well thought of  Tottenham Hotspur youngster Nathan Oduwa.

They are working on a deal to sign Nigeria Under-23 international before the winter transfer window closes on February 15th. 20-year-old (21 in March) Oduwa played for the Tottenham Under-23 side against Liverpool on Sunday, but was unfortunately on the losing side.

Come back stronger boys

Delighted to have signed for Great opportunity and can't wait to get started! 🙌🏻🔥⚽️

Both Luke McGee and Nathan Oduwa have joined League One side Peterborough United on loan until January. It is all part of a young players education going out on loan, where they have to fend for themselves, mature as a person and as a player, fight for a place rather than get one almost automatically through rotation in a development squad.

Loans have a big part to play given Premier League 2 games are all rather meaningless, simply training exercises against another club. They bear no comparison to senior football. These lad will be learning from experienced players and playing against people who will give no quarter and where the results you achieve actually matter.

They'll have to deal with a baying crowd, expectation, abuse, rival fans, none of which you really get at development level. Good luck boys, come back stronger players. COYS

Hauled off in the first half Oduwa now gets 5 minutes

9:00 pm
After two substitute appearances and being humiliatingly hauled off before half-time on his starting debut for Nigeria U-23's, 20-year-old winger Nathan Oduwa was given 5 minutes at the end of the game against Honduras, a 3-1 win.

This ought to show the Spurs fans who go over the top about a player that there are gaps in standards and just because a player looks good at one level doesn't mean they can do it at another. The forum dwellers have been suggesting he could be a part of the squad next season, along with Alex Pritchard, a group of others and Tom Carroll.

This was all before we have clinched UEFA Champions League football, which either shows a complete lack of belief in the side or a complete failure to appreciate different standards of competition.

The Scottish Championship (2nd division) and League ONe (3rd division) are not the Premier League even if the exceptional Dele Alli and the much older Ryan Mason have shown what can be done. That does not mean every player can do the same, most can't instantly make the gap.

Playing development level football, where players don't tackle is a far cry from first team football at any level. A player has to go on loan to grow up and they all mature at different rats. If a player is mentally immature his development will take longer. Having to go to a strange city, find a place to stay, fend for themselves without their Mum looking after them, meeting new people, training a different way, listening and applying what other coaches want, quite apart from performing in front of fane who expect you to be good, is a big ask.

It is a big learning curve and one all players have to go on. The world is littered with sportsman who behave as if they are bigger than they are, many never actually make it and others have to learn success will only come if you put the effort in on the training ground.

He may well make it, but I suspect not before he appreciates he has to knuckle down, he ain't Pele yet.

Oduwa hauled off before half-time

5:00 pm
Nathan Oduwa didn't last long when he was given a start in the Nigeria U-23 team as they prepare for the Rop Olympics this summer, he was hauled off before half-time.

It is embarrassing for a player when they are so bad they can't even make it to half-time, it's bad enough at half-time, but before speaks volumes for his performance.

At the moment, Oduwa isn't signing a new contract at Tottenham after going to Rangers on loan, being sent back to Tottenham and loaned out to Colchester United this season. The 20-year-old (21 in March) hasn't developed as hoped and his attitude may have held him back.

He received criticism in Scotland and you wonder whether he thinks he should be playing first team football and is not putting the effort in on the training ground to improve. It happens in all sports, some think they have made it and stop trying, too much too soon. It might be that he simply isn't good enough or that he had an off day, but even on an off day, players rarely get substituted before half-time.

There were plenty of scouts there to see him too, scouts from around Europe, the Premier League and the Championship. He has had two previous substitute appearances before his inauspicious debut.

VIDEO: 5 min Oduwa background interview

12:30 pm
An excellent Nathan Oduwa interview for Rangers where he sits and talks about growing up in South London, although he is from central Lendon and learning his football skills from others in a cage.

For anyone not familiar with a cage is is simply a concrete area with a high fence all the way around and goals at each end. They are no bigger than a five-a-side pitch usually and give the kids somewhere to play without losing the ball or damaging property. back then he didn't even have a team to play for and now he is wowing Scottish fans week-in-week-out.

Nathan Oduwa is catching the eye in Scotland, he has a lot to learn, he isn't the finished article, but is getting rave reviews. It will be important to keep his feet on the ground and not get carried away with all the hype.

Mark Warburton has a very important job to do in that respect, as I wrote in a previous article it is an important responsibility having a loan player. If you manage him wrong at this stage he could think he has made it, stop improving or become big headed. The player that comes out of a loan move is more important than the player that goes into a loan move.

Managing a loanee is a big responsibility

The commentary is as good as the skill in this clip.

The 19-year-old (20 next March) is on a season-long loan with the Scottish Championship side and his performance in Rangers 5-0 win against Raith Rovers earned him a place in the Scottish Team of the Week.

Former Tottenham Hotspur centre-back and captain Gary Mabbutt believes Mark Warburton is the right man to groom youngster Nathan Oduwa for a big career. It has started well in Scotland, but it is early days yet and his success may mean more Scottish clubs come looking for young Premier League club talents. I am sure many will be keen to see how he develops and how he handles a long season.

Nathan Oduwa and Dominic Bal both play the full game for Rangers in their away midweek cup victory over Airdrieonians on their plastic pitch.

RANGERS TEAM TO PLAY AIRDRIEONIANS: Foderingham, Wallace, Kiernan, Ball, Tavernier, Halliday, Zelalem, Shiels, Oduwa, Clark, Waghorn.

Having started both Oduwa and Ball played the full 90 minutes in the Scottish League Cup tie that saw Rangers with their 4-3-3 system run out comfortable 5-0 winners.

Good 5-0 win tonight, fans were amazing again they made it feel like a home game tonight!

Tweeting is all now a part of a player's PR to the fans rather than a personal expression vehicle. That's not the case for all especially the youth, but they will be taught how to use it as part of their media training. Dominic Ball wasn't to be lft out.

Good 5-0 win in the cup, another clean sheet and onto the next round, fans superb as usual!

The highlights can be seen at the link below which is followed by an interview with manager Mark Warburton and their is a match report that mentions both our guys. Warburton makes some comments about his right-back, who has scored 5 goals so far, which Kyle Walker would perhaps do well to listen too.

On loan Oduwa 30 minutes at Rangers (Video)

6:30 pm

Ranger won 1-0 against Hibernian up across the border in the Scottish Championship with both Dominic Ball and Nathan Oduwa on the bench. Oduwa did come on after 60 minutes for McKay in front of 49,220 fans.

He isn't going to get that sort of crowd or the sort of passion they generate in the lower league in England so sending players regularly to Scotland, especially if Rangers get promotion, may be a good option for our young players.

Oduwa needs to learn that body language is important in football, your opponent determines the type of opponent you are by your actions and at the moment, being young, the impression I get is that he only looks interested when he has the ball at his feet. The crowds up there will ensure he grows as a footballer and learns his responsibilities.

Preparations for tomorrow's big clash have all been done! Can't wait to feel the atmosphere! Will you be there?

Fantastic win today ! The atmosphere today was unreal! Thanks to the fans for the amazing support 🏾6 wins in 6 games!

Managing a loanee is a big responsibility

5:00 pm
Mauricio Pochettino is a big admirer of Mark Warburton after the work he did with Alex Pritchard at Brentford last season.

Brentford invested in the side last summer but arguably their best player turned out to be the young Spurs loanee who Pochettino has said he is expecting big things of this season. Simply loaning a young player out to any side is the wrong approach, a potential loan deal must be fully researched so if you know a manager, know the way he wants to play, know how he treats young developing adults, both on and arguably more importantly off the field, then you know your player is going to be in safe hands.

The environment has to be right for the individual, they have to feel comfortable, confident and have the pressure of performing to fight for and keep a place. For a creative player like Pritchard, their performances directly affect the success of a side so they have to win over a fan base as well, all in a new city living away from home.

For some it's a question of cutting the apron strings so they mature quicker then they would in a closeted environment, the quicker an individual matures, the quicker they develop as a player. There are plenty of clubs who want to tale our youngsters so a manager who plays in a style that suits our game and who works with our players well is going to have an advantage when there are a new group of loanees available.

Mark Warburton is now the boss of Scottish giants Rangers who we played in a training game at Hotspur Way this summer. Before, during and after that game Pochettino and Warburton discussed sending players on loan to Rangers for the coming season. Despite remaining in the Scottish Championship Rangers have a huge following home and away, they have a history of expecting to win every game and that places huge pressure on any youngster. That pressure to perform is possibly a greater test than the standard of football in the Championship for the two players we have now sent there on loan.

The Scottish Daily Record newspaper reveal that Warburton has secured the services of 18-year-old (19 next March) England Under-18 midfielder Nathan Oduwa and 20-year-old (21 next August) defensive midfielder and centre-back Dominic Ball.

Pochettino is happy the pair are in safe hands and the development of starlet Oduwa will be watched with great interest after his appearances in pre-season friendlies brought him to the attention of many a Spurs fan.

Dutch clubs want Spurs youngster

5:00 pm
Under-21 football is sterile, at times it can look like a non-contact sport so while a youngster develops their skills it is totally alien from match conditions.

Players have to go out on loans to learn to fight for a place in a team, some can handle it, some have to deal with a failure to force their way through. Ryan Fredericks has left the club and signed for Bristol City after his spell at Middlesbrough last season, Grant Hall suffered at Birmingham and has not pushed on at Spurs, he is on trial at QPR.

Tom Carroll had the opportunity to join Ajax on loan when Christian Eriksen arrived. He decided not to go, his career stalled at QPR and he is only now getting back on track. I have long suggested that this is exactly what some of our youngsters need and that we should organise a tie-up with a Dutch or Belgian club.

AZ Alkmaar, Roda JC and Feyenoord have all expressed an interest in taking 19-year-old (20 next March) Nathan Oduwa on loan for the season according to Sky Sports. He is also wanted by Coventry city boss Tony Mowbray so there are options. Oduwa has recovered after being knocked unconscious in the game against Stevenage recently and looks set for a loan spell next.
