Tottenham youngster Jonathan Obika looks set to move away from White Hart Lane this summer, with Doncaster Rovers enquiring about a transfer, initially on loan

Obika has scored consistently for the Spurs development squad, often playing as the lone striker, but evidently has not done enough to prove himself as a Tottenham first player and not following in the footsteps of Andros Townsend, Harry Kane and Nabil Bentaleb.

At 23, time is not on the forward's side and despite being handed an extended deal recently, he is unlikely to play much. Dickov has tracked the former U20 England player for a long time and has now made his move.

“Jonathan’s a player I’ve admired for a long time,” said Dickov, according to the Doncaster Free Press.

“I’ve watched him since he was 16-year-old at Tottenham and he’s a player I know a lot about.

“There have been preliminary discussions, but that’s about as far as it’s gone at the moment.”

Appearances 

Obika has made only four appearances for Spurs, all in cup competitions, and had loan spells at seven clubs, including Yeovil (4 times), Charlton (twice) and most recently Brighton. A record of 26 goals in 135 appearances does not paint a true picture as a lot of those appearances have been from the bench and not all the loan spells have worked out as hope.

Many Spurs fans are surprised he is still at the club but will hope the Academy product can make it in the professional ranks.
