Tottenham Hotspur’s Alejo Véliz completed a loan move to Sevilla on deadline day of the winter market.

Last week, the striker insisted he’s pleased to have secured a move to the La Liga side and is hopeful of more game time.

ABC Sevilla now state the Tottenham owned player and Sevilla’s other January signings haven’t helped Quique Sánchez Flores.

It was Sevilla president José María del Nido Carrasco’s strategy to bet on youngsters and sporting director, Victor Orta, executed that plan. The newspaper claims this was a ‘risky’ bet, and it hasn’t paid off yet.

The Argentina U20 international, who overcame an injury, has been limited to 19 minutes from two substitute appearances so far. Although the Sevilla manager has publicly praised him, the Tottenham man has to ‘continue waiting to gain a place’ in the team.

Youssef En-Nesyri’s return from AFCON and Isaac Romero’s emergence has made it more difficult for Véliz to get regular opportunistic at Sevilla.

‘There’s still room’ for him, to reverse the situation, and contribute to the Spanish club until the end of this season.

For now, Sevilla’s ‘risky’ bet to sign the Spurs man hasn’t worked out, and their January signing doesn’t help the manager.

Sevilla don’t have a purchase option and Véliz will return to Tottenham after this season.
