Iago Falque, at the age of 23, is yet to establish himself at White Hart Lane whereas fellow youngsters like Gylfi Sigurdsson, Lewis Holtby and Tom Carroll are considered as more important to the team.
Falque's loan move to La Liga club Rayo Vallecano is his third loan stint after arriving at Spurs in 2012. Till now, he has failed to break into Spurs team and has been on the periphery of things.
At his age, Falque cannot be considered as an exciting prospect anymore and with more talented young players waiting in the Spurs set up, his loan move might bring temporary relief.
If Falque's loan move to Southampton was a disaster, then the move to Almeria fared a little better in terms of stats. Taking confidence from that performances he has now moved to another Spanish club in Rayo Vallecano, who got promoted to top flight along with Almeria this season.
Until now Falque has failed to make his way to Premier League nor have shown any signs of a player belonging in this competition.
Will Spurs be better of selling the Spaniard? but who will buy him?
The loan move to Rayo is indirectly putting him for sale. He is a player who has failed to get into terms with English game while his performances were slightly better in Spain. The latest loan move presents him a chance to increase his worth and value in familiar conditions. Can he make an impact in Spain?
If Falque is able to make an impact Daniel Levy and co. will be happy to sell him to the highest bidder (if any). Even allowing him to leave on free will make sense if he fails there.
Not many will be thinking that Falque deserves a go at Tottenham. The only thing which is remaining to be seen is how long it will take Spurs to dispatch the player - this loan move might be a step taken to get something out of the player after a long wait!
