Tottenham manager Jose Mourinho insists he will not stand in the way of a possible return to Benfica for midfielder Gedson Fernandes.
Fernandes, 21, joined Spurs on an 18-month loan deal back in January this year. However, things have not gone to plan, with only 13 appearances in all competitions for the youngster.
Yet to make a Premier League start, he has featured for just 61 minutes in the top flight. It seems as though he is now surplus to requirements at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.
The Portuguese tactician has a wealth of talent at his disposal in the middle of the park. Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg, Harry Winks, Moussa Sissoko, Giovani Lo Celso and Dele Alli are above Fernandes in the ranks.
