£15m player begged Tottenham to let him go on international duty but they said no

Destiny Udogie’s agent Stefano Antonelli has claimed that Tottenham Hotspur did not grant his client permission to be a part of Italy’s side in this international break

This season, the 20-year-old has surprised everyone in the Premier League. He has been fantastic for Spurs at left back, and he’ll soon establish himself as a mainstay for the Italian team as well. Nevertheless, Tottenham prevented him from realizing his goal of representing his country this week.

Tottenham did not allow Destiny Udogie to go on international duty

Tottenham signed Destiny Udogie from Udinese last year for an initial fee of £15 million (Sky Sports).

The Italian enjoyed an outstanding season at Stadio Friuli after being loaned back there for a season. After joining Spurs in the summer, he has been an important member of the Premier League team under manager Ange Postecoglou.

Udogie also made his debut for Italy on the international scene last month, and during this international break, he was expected to play again for Luciano Spalletti’s team against North Macedonia and Ukraine.

The youthful defender reportedly begged Spurs to release him because he was itching to play for Italy this week. Nevertheless, Tottenham refused to give him permission to participate because they believed it would be too risky after a recent knock.

Udogie’s agent, Stefano Antonelli, has now had his say on the situation.
