Tottenham Hotspur loan players continued to gain playing time across Europe and the Football League this week.
There was a loan change with Shilow Tracey returning from Shrewsbury Town and back to Cambridge United in search of minutes.
He joins Jubril Okedina, who signed for United on loan earlier this month.
Goalkeeper Brandon Austin also visited the MLS side in Orlando City this week for the season, but their campaign is not expected to begin until March.
Tottenham’s entire loan army is looking to either earn their place in Jose Mourinho’s future first-team plans or set up a future movement to continue his professional career.
Here’s how the ten young players on loan from Tottenham are doing:
Jack Clarke (Stoke City)
The 20-year-old winger made his debut game for Stoke City this weekend in the 2-1 home loss to Wolves.
Clarke got 82 minutes of football in his tank before being taken out.
Clarke received praise from Potters boss Michael O’Neill for his performance.
“I thought he was very good. You can see his ability with the ball right away,” the manager told the Stoke Sentinel.
“He can handle the ball really well. I thought he bonded really well with Nathan Collins on this side and Joe Allen.
“They were two very young players who handled it very well against two very good players on this side. It was a good start for Jack.
“In the three games since his arrival he has shown great quality and I think he can add something to us.”
Mourinho has been impressed by Clarke this season with his work ethic and abilities, but Tottenham currently have too many winger to give him playing time.
The hope is that his time at Stoke will help him develop physically and see him return this summer ready to challenge his Spurs teammates.
Troy Parrott (Millwall)
Troy Parrott had a tough day in the FA Cup as Millwall lost 3-0 at home to Bristol City.
The 18-year-old Irishman struggled to impact poor team performance and was pulled out after 63 minutes.
It has been a tough time for Millwall but it will have been an experience for the teenager, now back in the thick of it since returning from an ankle injury in late November and this was the 14th appearance of Parrott on loan.
He is still waiting for his first goal and will be hoping he will come in the League game against Watford on Tuesday night.
Oliver Skipp (Norwich City)
Considered one of the starters of Norwich’s first team, Oliver Skipp was given a break from the starting line-up for the Canaries’ FA Cup draw at Barnsley.
However, the East Anglian side clearly missed it as they lost 1-0 to their Championship colleagues and even 27 minutes off the bench for Skipp was not enough to turn the tide.
The 20-year-old midfielder has been ubiquitous and is rarely replaced by the Norwich City championship side in the league.
Skipp has also been an integral part of the Canaries squad and the England Under-21 international has made 24 consecutive league starts for the East Anglian squad.
Mourinho affirmed football.london last season Skipp will become a future Tottenham Hotspur captain and last week he admitted he would love to call the young midfielder back to Tottenham but he couldn’t be selfish.
“From a selfish perspective it would be nice to bring him back now, but we are not selfish,” he said. football.london Last week.
“The players are very important. The future is very important, the best thing for him is to finish the season there.
“[[It’s been a] very successful loan for us and also for Norwich. We are very happy that he is playing and that he is playing well. He plays to win and to win titles so he also has that pressure on him.
“He plays two or three matches a week so there is also physical development. Next season he’s back, but we think for this season we think it’s better for him to stay at Norwich and he is also very happy about it. “
Cameron Carter Vickers (Bournemouth)
After returning to action, Carter-Vickers had a week off before Bournemouth’s FA Cup match against Crawley Town which will be played on Tuesday night.
The center-back had played 90 straight minutes for the Cherries, followed by a posting of 45 to end his nightmare on the South Coast.
The 22-year-old USA international appears to be back on track and there has even been talk in the local South Cherry Coast press about making his loan permanent this month.
Ryan Sessegnon (Hoffenheim)
Ryan Sessegnon has had another weekend off in Germany due to a blow he received a few weeks ago.
That meant he missed Hoffenheim’s 3-0 home win over Cologne.
The 20-year-old has been a regular starter for the Bundesliga squad in recent months until the injury.
Juan Foyth (Villarreal)
Foyth has had a mixed week at Villarreal in La Lia.
By midweek he had 90 minutes under his belt, playing right-back – something he’s experienced at Spurs and for Argentina – in the 2-2 home draw against Granada.
However, a muscle injury saw him miss the 0-0 draw at Huesca three days later.
Foyth’s versatility could secure him more minutes under his belt when he gets fit in the coming weeks, having previously played center-back, midfield and now full-back for the team. Unai Emery.
Villarreal have an option to buy Foyth at the end of his loan spell in Spain and he has now made 13 appearances for his loan club, but only six in La Liga.
Harvey White (Portsmouth)
The 20-year-old made his debut at Portsmouth last week with two appearances on the bench in League One.
First in midweek he got 19 minutes in a 4-0 win over AFC Wimbledon, then at the weekend Kenny Jackett brought him to halftime in the heavy loss 4 -0 against leaders Hull City.
Jackett has indicated that White, whom he has known well since working at Tottenham academy, will have plenty of playing time in the coming months.
TJ Eyoma (Lincoln City)
TJ Eyoma got another 90 minutes to the right-back of his name this weekend as his successful loan to Lincoln City continues.
The 20-year-old played the entire game as Lincoln won 2-1 at home against Northampton in League One.
Eyoma has already made 30 appearances for Lincoln this season after making his Tottenham debut in the FA Cup a few seasons ago under Mauricio Pochettino.
Jubril Okedina (Cambridge United)
Okedina is yet to make his Ligue 2 debut for Cambridge United.
The 20-year-old right-back made his official debut earlier this month in the EFL Trophy as Cambridge lost 1-0 to Oxford United.
He was again an unused substitute in Ligue 2 this weekend as Cambridge drew 0-0 at home with Bradford.
“His attitude, defensive skills and athleticism make him a good asset,” United head coach Mark Bonner said when full-back signed this month.
“It will be a good experience for Jubril as this is his first senior loan and he gives us good competition and cover in the defensive unit.”

Shilow Tracey (Cambridge United)
Tracey decided to join Okedina at Cambridge in order to get more playing time at a lower level than he was with Shrewsbury.
The Shrews have had Covid issues over the past two weeks which has seen a number of postponements but they eventually returned last Tuesday night for the FA Cup third round match at Southampton and Tracey signed her time there -low with nearly half an hour from the bench in defeat.
Tracey, 22, has appeared 12 times for Town, scoring four times with all those EFL Trophy goals, and now he will look to play more for Cambridge.
