‘Something happened behind the scenes’ before Djed Spence quit Leeds for Tottenham

Before Djed Spence abruptly left Leeds United this month, “something happened behind the scenes.”


Speaking exclusively to Football Insider, former Tottenham and Aston Villa defender Alan Hutton questioned if the former loanee was focused or working hard enough to convince Whites boss Daniel Farke.

The Tottenham player’s loan was terminated by Leeds, and as part of Spurs’ acquisition of center-back Radu Dragusin, he has since transferred to Serie A team Genoa, where he will remain until the conclusion of the campaign.


After recovering from a ligament injury, the full-back only made seven appearances, but Farke has since hinted that there might have been problems with his “professionalism” and “discipline.”

Spence has the potential to be a very good player, Hutton insisted, but he needs to put his head down and concentrate on his game.

“I think it’s an odd one,” he said to Football Insider.

“I really liked him at Nottingham Forest and then Tottenham came in for him with the big money.

“I felt he might have had a chance under Ange Postecoglou, and I was really excited to see what he was capable of.

However, after reading Daniel Farke’s remarks, you might assume that anything unusual took on behind the scenes.

Is he not exerting himself enough? Does he lack focus?

He seems like a man who wants to learn when I watch him play on the field.

It’s unfortunate to see this happen because he has every quality needed to be a full-back in the modern day.

With his new loan move, perhaps he can focus and go out and prove to people what a quality player he is.
