    He could have easily played 38 games for the likes of Norwich this season, hopefully an option like that comes up next season? Fulham, Forest, Huddersfield, Bournemouth, etc. I’m sure would love him in their squads.

    Looked like a midget next to Dier in those recent NBA pictures

    No I don't think it will happen with Conte.

    I agree, he's too weak on the ball for Conte. I'd look to sell with an option to buy back. He's a good defender and will do well in the right team but just not suited to us right now.

    I'd be a bit worried we'd be losing something important if we let him go. Him and Skipp are the two carrying the homegrown torch at the moment. If Tanganga goes, it would be important to see someone like John or White take his place in the 25.

    I always remember this quote from Micky Hazard:

    "Homegrown talent gives a club its heart and soul. You learn as you come through the system, you learn about the history, the traditions, the style of play, its philosophies, its beliefs; its instilled in you. Then when you sign big name players, its the homegrown players who pass on this knowledge and information about the club. So you are educating them on how great the club is and what it stands for, and they're educating you on how to become a better player. So it works hand in hand"

    To be honest I don’t think any of us can accurately judge Tanganga at this stage - the guy’s played so little senior football, and it’s been so disrupted by injury and constantly swapping positions. I’d like to see him get a season-long loan in whatever his best position is and manage to stay injury free, and then let’s see where he’s at.

    He seems an aggressive and proactive defender. He does not have the ball skill of Romero but I wonder if he could learn understudying him (not that there is much age difference).

    I agree in that similarity with Romero in how he tackles in the front foot. I think I'm in the minority but I thought he showed a lot of promise and given the improvement we've seen in every defender since Conte came in I'd like to see if he can prove himself as a deputy at RCB in pre season or go on loan and we reassess after he's had a full season in his preferred position.

    Think we might end up keeping him next season. Assuming we sign a new LCB and then have Sanchez and Davies as main two back-ups, we'd probably need a 3rd back-up CB. Rodon is likely to be achieve of Tanganga in the list of players to loan out given nationality

    Agree. Better off at a bottom 10 epl squad where his energy and enthusiasm will be appreciated.
