After Leeds United ended Djed Spence’s loan from Tottenham, the player who cost £20 million was now only worth half as he played the remaining games for Genoa.


Many Leeds supporters were ecstatic when Djed Spence was named player of the season, showing that the team was determined to bounce back from their Max Aarons loss.


The 23-year-old’s effect was questioned by supporters due to a knee ailment and his little playing time at right-back overall. He left the team early in January with no significant accomplishments to his name.


Spence’s stint with Tottenham was short-lived as he was thrown into the trade that allowed Ange Postecoglou to add Radu Dragusin, a center-back for Genoa, to his team.


Spence headed to the Serie A team on loan until the end of the season while the Romanian joined Spurs.

The intriguing part is that Spurs and the Italian team have worked out a €10 million (£8.6 million) option to buy:


If Genoa can sign Spence when his stock is at its lowest and they are able to get the best out of him, this transfer may truly work out for them.


Daniel Farke will, however, feel vindicated by the fact that even Spurs, who were content to sell him in the summer for less than half of the £20 million they paid to sign him in 2022, want no more to do with him.

Spence had the potential to play the best in the Championship, but a number of factors—including injuries and his general lack of mental toughness—made it unfeasible.


Given our lack of depth at right-back, losing a fantastic alternative is not ideal, but given what has happened since, the club seems to be justified in that decision.
