‘Postekoglou has not abandoned him yet’…’Transfer failed’ → Tottenham playing time increases!!
Are there still opportunities for Brine Hill (Tottenham) to play?
Hill is a left-footed wing forward from Spain. He is a style that peels off the opponent’s defense based on his ability to handle side balls and fast speed. He is a promising player despite his weak physical strength, he also has pass capability.
Hill, who played in his country’s leagues such as Sevilla and Leganes, wore a Tottenham uniform for the 2021-22 season. Tottenham had a ‘cash + player’ type of Hill and sent a transfer fee of 25 million euros (about 35 billion won) to Sevilla.
However, contrary to his initial expectations, Hill could not establish himself at Tottenham. He went on loan to Valencia, making only nine substitutes in his first season. He moved to Sevilla and returned to Spain for a ‘temporary life in Spain’ the following season.
This season, Hill’s position as the new coach Postecoglou is still unclear. Following the existing Son Heung-min and Dejan Klusevski, Brennan Johnson has joined, and Timo Werner has also joined the winter transfer market.
Naturally, there was a possibility that Hill would leave the team in January, and Fiorentina tried to recruit him, but things changed again. Team Talk in the UK announced on the 14th (Korea time) that “Fiorentina will withdraw her interest in Hill and no recruitment will take place.”
At the same time, it was also reported that Hill could receive another opportunity from Postecoglou. The media explained, “With Fiorentina giving up his recruitment, Postecoglou could provide Hill with more playing time in January. Hill will have a new opportunity as he can play as an attacking midfielder in the center as well as in the side.”
He continued, “Hill’s priority is to stay at Tottenham. Even though he lacks playing time, he prefers to stay at Tottenham over Fiorentina. Postecoglou also expressed a positive outlook, saying, “I’m happy that Hill remains.”
