Report: Alli likely staying put after Spurs reject PSG's loan offer

It looks like Dele Alli is staying at Tottenham after all.

Spurs have rejected a £1.5-million loan bid from Paris Saint-Germain for the versatile Englishman, according to Ed Aarons of The Guardian. Last week, reports surfaced that Tottenham offered the 24-year-old to PSG, and his agent was in talks to engineer a move away from the Premier League side.

Alli has not featured in a league match since being substituted at halftime of the club's season opener against Everton, sparking rumors of an exit.

The 24-year-old came off the bench Thursday in the Europa League playoff against Maccabi Haifa and scored a late goal in his team's 7-2 win.

Earlier this week, manager Jose Mourinho refused to draw himself into the speculation when pressed about Alli's future with Spurs, and only said Alli was "very, very professional" despite the reduced playing time.

"I have only respect for him," Mourinho added.

Alli, who has looked destined for megastardom since scoring 18 league goals during the 2016-17 season, has seen his progress stagnate, particularly since Mourinho replaced Mauricio Pochettino in north London.
