Coulibaly makes Italian loan move

Souleymane Coulibaly has joined Serie B side US Grosseto on loan until the end of the season.

The Italian side are currently rooted at the bottom of the Italian second division, and although there is no guarantee's that the player will ever make the grade at WHL, this represents a good opportunity to get games and perhaps develop without quite the same pressure as he might have expected in a loan in the English lower leagues.

At only just 18, Souleymane has all too often been overhyped by Tottenham fans as they have looked to see him pushed into a Senior place, almost from the day he signed for the club. That may well be as much about the clubs lack of attacking depth, but the fact that he was at school leaving age when he joined us in summer of 2011, made any hopes of an instant elevation to the first team and from what I have seen and heard, he remains a player of very strong potential, but he is still a young man with much to learn and his career could still go one of two ways.

As I speculated earlier in the week, following the loan of Iago Falque to Spain, this perhaps cements my thinking that we will make a greater effort to loan our offensive and creative players abroad, as there appears difficulty in finding clubs that can assist in their development. Perhaps if we see some home-grown players take the same route, we will then know for sure...
