Tottenham are prepared to let Dele Alli leave on loan in January.
With the 24-year-old expressing his unhappiness at his lack of first-team football in North London and with his hopes of making the England squad for the Euros fast receding Alli has been pressing to be allowed to leave the club when the window opens.
Chairman Daniel Levy does not want to lose him on a permanent basis, because he still rates him and believes he could still be a major player for the club in the future.’
However, he is now prepared to sanction an 18-month loan deal, with PSG his most likely destination. Monaco may also be interested in signing him, because their Sporting Director Paul Mitchell, worked with Alli at MK Dons and then took to Spurs when he was appointed head of recruitment there.
Alli is under contract at Tottenham until June 2024 so there is no pressure on them to sell him.
He appeared as a second-half substitute in the draw with Crystal Palace on Sunday.
