Tottenham fans will be hoping to see plenty more of Bryan Gil in the remaining months of the season after a quiet start to life in N17.
Coming from Sevilla in the summer in a deal that saw Erik Lamela head in the opposite direction, the Spaniard has played 19 games so far after moving to the capital.
Nine of the player’s appearances have come since games started, but Gil is yet to start a Premier League game for the Lilywhites, coming off the bench eight times so far.
Three of them came during Antonio Conte’s tenure at Tottenham and the winger will do everything he can to become a permanent fixture in the new Spurs XI head coach.
However, it’s still going to be tough for the Spain international with the likes of Son Heung-min, Lucas Moura and Steven Bergwijn ahead of him in the current pecking order.
Well, given that Gil needs to increase his minutes as he seeks to regain his best form, his former Sevilla team-mate Alejandro Pozo has hinted at a possible loan move for his good friend.
“You always have another team that gives you confidence, like it happened to me, and Bryan has now signed Tottenham, although now he’s not playing minutes but hey, he’ll come out on loan and play and feel like again. a footballer,” Pozo, who is now on loan at Almeria, told Spanish publication Estadio Deportivo (via sports witness ).

While it remains to be seen what will happen with Gil under Conte, Pozo admitted he would like a reunion with the highly rated youngster.
“I hope, I hope (laughs). If I can do something, of course I will,” he added.
“He’s a real footballer and I get on very well with him. I’m already telling you that he would be delighted, because Andalusia is Andalusia. In the end, it’s our land and it’s is different for us.”
