Alan Hutton has tipped Dele Alli to leave Tottenham within the next two months in a bid to get back playing regular first-team football.
Speaking exclusively to Football Insider assistant editor Russell Edge, the former Spurs and Scotland defender admits he is baffled by the 24-year-old’s plight in north London and suggests he needs a move away to kickstart his career.
Alli has started just twice for Jose Mourinho this season and has been snubbed from four of a possible six Premier League matchday squads.
The attacking midfielder has also fallen out of Gareth Southgate’s thinking for England, having not featured for the Three Lions in over a year.
Hutton admits he does not understand why the “fantastic” Dele has plummeted down the pecking order in north London and suggests a move away could be on the cards in the winter transfer window.
“Something has to change,” Hutton told Football Insider.
