The announcement that Spurs had signed Ezekiel Fryers might not have been the biggest shock after he spent the summer at the club, but where does he fit into AVB plans?
In the last week or so, we have heard AVB talk positively about the qualities of Benoit Assou-Ekotto and Danny Rose, stating that BAE is a key player and Rose is very much in his plans, therefore where does that leave Fryers? At 20 and with very few senior games under his belt, he could still be considered a player for the future, but wasn't one of the reasons he left United because he wanted to step up from Academy level and play first team football? You hope his decision wasn't purely financially driven, but was made very much with football development in mind, but ...
Considering he has only played about ten senior games, can we yet talk about him in terms of being a first team option? Though I have only seem him play one game, against Leeds in the Carling Cup, a game where he did impress me, I very much question the logic in throwing him straight into the squad over Naughton for example, as cover for BAE when he hopefully returns as a regular from this weekend.
Is this purchase simply a case of adding a very promising youngster to the ranks in the hope he becomes a star, and considering we don't have anyone emerging from the Academy in the left back role and in fact are perhaps light all round for defensive options (Fryers can also play CB), but should Rose return and BAE stays, will it then be the turn of Fryers to have time on loan to gain that much needed experience, or is he already considered good enough to jump straight into first team contention?
We have heard that AVB has said that Rose is in his plans, but this week, Danny has indicated that he wants to stay at Sunderland, likes the North as it is close to his family and in short, wants to play every week. Does this make his return to White Hart Lane unlikely in the summer, especially if BAE stays, but will it be Smart Car driver that is moved on, as the older, and more expensive option? Either way, if Fryers in in the squad plan from the start, you assume that one of BAE or Rose is going to be sold...
