Tottenham defensive starlet looks to impress after joining QPR on trial

Tottenham Hotspur centre-back Jonathan Dinzeyi is currently having a trial at Championship side QPR, according to reports.

The 20-year-old is yet to make a senior appearance for Spurs, and QPR may be set to offer him a move away from the club if he performs well during his trial, reports West London Sport.

This wouldn’t be the first time a young Spurs player has moved on to the R’s, with Grant Hall, Charlie Owens and Aramide Oteh all making the same switch and Jack Clarke being the latest Spurs player to move to Loftus Road.

Due to the depth of Spurs’ defensive options, Dinzeyi may not be prepared to wait around for his chance to play first-team football, and may be enticed to move down to the Championship with QPR in order to get game time.

Last season the England under-18 international made 10 appearances in the Premier League 2, whilst also making appearances in the EFL Trophy against Gillingham and Crawley.

If QPR were to sign Dinzeyi after his trial, it would fill the gap left by departing centre-back Toni Leistner, who was sent out on loan to FC Koln during the January window.

It would also add more competition to the QPR defence which has been leaking goals recently, shipping the third highest amount of goals in the Championship.
