Comparing Djed Spence’s 21-22 stats to Tottenham’s current wing-backs

Tottenham are reportedly interested in signing Middlesbrough full-back Djed Spence but how does he compare to their current options at wing-back?

Spence was one of the standout players in the Championship last season during his loan spell at Nottingham Forest and helped the club achieve promotion after 23 years in the lower divisions.

“[This club] means everything to me,” Spence said after their play-off final victory over Huddersfield. “I’ve come here and the fans and gaffer have both taken me in. We lose together and win together. We’re going up together. This means everything to me.”

When asked whether he would like to stay at the City Ground, Spence said: “I would love to stay, but it’s not in my hands. We’ll see what the future holds.”

But his standout performance during the FA Cup victory over Arsenal in January 2022 bought Spence to national attention. Both Arsenal and Spurs were strongly linked with the 21-year-old but it seems like Spence will be heading to the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.
