Roy Keane reckons Tottenham should 'let go' of Dele Alli and thinks Newcastle could be good landing spot

Roy Keane believes the time has come for Tottenham to part ways with Dele Alli for the player’s own good.

Ally joined Spurs from MK Dons in 2015 as one of England’s brightest young talents.

But the out-of-form 25-year-old has struggled for games in recent seasons and featured only six in charge of 15 games under new boss Antonio Conte.

He was dropped from the squad that lost to Chelsea in late Sunday’s kick-off amid speculation he would move to Newcastle.

And former Manchester United captain Roy Keane says Spurs should let him go to give him a chance to rejuvenate his career.

Keane told sky game: “I think the kid has lost the eye of the tiger. Sometimes you have to let the kid go, that’s the nature of football.

“You’ve had your time here, you’ve clearly lost your way. (Tottenham should) be nice to the kid and ‘you’ve been a good signing for us’.

“Let the kid go. (He could go to) Newcastle, take his career up there. The fans will love him if he comes in.”

Alli is under contract at Tottenham until 2024, but reports suggest the groundwork is being laid for a move to the big-spending Toon.

But Keane’s fellow pundit Jimmy Floyd Hasselbank does not agree that moving to another Premier League club would suit the midfielder.

He added: “I think they need a fresh start – they need to go abroad.

“Fresh start, nobody knows it, clean sheet. There is a lot of pressure on him right now, everyone is watching him – go abroad.”
