What happened to him... He looked like a world beater...!!!
He’s been good for Leeds every time I’ve seen them. I heard that Reguilon’s loan deal was pretty much intended to be January only. Wonder if the same is true of Spence. IMO Spence would be more likely to be able to play FB the Ange way. I guess they’ll both be loaned out somewhere else. Reggie I’m sure will find a taker, LBs don’t grow on trees.

Player in Training.
Genoa transfer market, Stellini describes Djed Spence. He coached him at Tottenham

In view of Djed Spence 's arrival in the rossoblu , who will undergo medical examinations in the next few hours before officially becoming a Genoa player, we reached Cristian Stellini by telephone. The former Grifone defender and Antonio Conte's assistant in the Apulian coach's last experience at Tottenham coached the 2000-born winger at Spurs from summer 2022 to January 2023.

Cristian Stellini, captain of Genoa famous for that penalty that weighed like a boulder in the playoffs against Salernitana and who didn't back down on that occasion, who better than him can tell us about Spence? Explain it to us both tactically and temperamentally…

Hello to all Genoans. Spence is a very polite boy, very reserved. I would define him as very calm, with great explosiveness and great speed. The English league has a lot of these types of very physical talents. He is a 24 year old boy who has a lot of room for improvement, especially in the final phase of the action: both in finishing and in making assists. He definitely has to grow up, otherwise he wouldn't be so young. But he is a player with incredible physicality and great technical ability to play tight. Both from a standstill and at speed he can become dangerous. In the past he made a leap up the category a little too high, in the sense that he won a Serie B championship with Nottingham Forrest and found himself at Tottenham, in a very strong team. Genoa is a good opportunity for him and to demonstrate his talent . "

How can Gilardino use it? Even as fifth?

He is a player suited to playing both as a full back four and, with his speed, also as a high winger in a 4-4-2. Otherwise he is a perfect fifth in a five-man defense because with his speed he covers the entire field very well. Is he ready to join the Italian championship and with Genoa? It is important that he is welcomed in the right way. All foreigners, especially those arriving from England with a language defect, need some time. Above all the warmth of the people and the stadium, I think he went to the right place. Because the warmth of the Ferraris is second to none. If he had asked me for advice, I would definitely have told him to go to Genoa ."

Last question: what do you think of the Dragusin operation at Tottenham?

Dragusin is a very strong player. He has demonstrated that he has value and important characteristics. As it has been for many players, making such an important leap will take some time. We are certainly talking about an important prospect ."

Thanks captain. Do you remember that penalty?

Yes, of course I remember it (laughs, ed.). What if I tell you? I never get bored telling it, maybe people get bored listening to it. It was the 95th minute Marco Rossi goes down into the area, the referee blows the penalty. The very good boy Dante Lopez goes to get the ball, but I told him 'Dante, this is not your penalty but mine. The responsibility lies with me and so let me take the lead.' Then everything went well ."

Some interesting claims doing the rounds at the moment about Spence. Claims that he frequently turned up late to training and team meetings and also missed a club event which was a team visit to a Children's hospital at Christmas.

Seemingly no question about his attitude while he was working as he was said to be polite and respectful but his timekeeping was awful and that's the reason his loan was terminated.

Neil Warnock refused to manage him.

Said he was a chippy little cunt (paraphrasing) who's attitude for in the way of his ability.

This was from a Forrest fan about how he was way back then.

I don't imagine more money, and being treated like a diva will finish that.

Another few bits about him came out a few days ago. One that Conte apparently did speak to him a number of times during the initial transfer negotiations to convince him to join and subsequently told everyone at that press conference that he was a "club signing".

He was also said to be living next door to one of the club's technical staff who reported that he often heard loud music playing at his house late in to the night with regular parties occuring there as well.

He would often arrive at training "with minutes to spare" before, I assume, the deadline before he would be fined.
