Luka Vuskovic's loan spell with Radomiak Radom is proving to be a big success. Not only is that good news for the Polish club as they bid to climb the Ekstraklasa table, it is also very good news for Tottenham as they build for the future in N17.
Making quite the name for himself with Hajduk Split in his homeland of Croatia, Spurs swiftly made their move for the talented 17-year-old and completed the signing of the youngster in a £12million deal back in September. Signing the player on a contract until the summer of 2030, there is still some way to go before the Croat can link up with the Lilywhites for the very first time.
Due to FIFA rules, the centre-back will have to wait until he can arrive in England in 2025 when he is 18-years-old. Just not getting the regular minutes he would have liked earlier in the season with Hajduk Split as all of his football came for the club's youngsters, the Croatian Under-19 international headed for Radomiak Radom at the end of the January transfer window.
Since coming off the bench for his debut in a 6-0 defeat away at Cracovia, Vuskovic has started every league game for the Ekstraklasa side. Not only that, he has played the full 90 minutes in those seven fixtures and made quite the impression in the process.
Displaying his eye for a goal when coming through Hajduk Split's system, the starlet has already netted two goals for his new club. On the scoresheet at home to Stal Mielec at the beginning of March, Vuskovic wasn't that far off registering a hat-trick of headers in the 2-1 win after rattling the crossbar with one and then seeing an attempt saved in the second half.
Managing to find the net four days later as they won away at Piast Gliwice, Vuskovic also got an assist to his name at the start of April as they drew 1-1 at Puszcza Niepolomice. Now this wasn't the defender playing a defence-splitting ball or teeing one of his teammates up in the box to help his side restore parity.

Instead, it was a simple pass back to goalkeeper Gabriel Kobylak that resulted in a rather freak goal as the shot-stopper's long punt forward went over the head of his compatriot in the Puszcza Niepolomice goal. Not a classic assist for Vuskovic but they all count.
Following his first assist for Radomiak Radom, the teenager delivered another strong showing as his team beat high-flying Rakow Czestochowa last Friday. It was quite the scalp for Radom, who are now tenth courtesy of their latest victory, as they got the better of their opponents who are currently in fourth.
Leading 2-0 just before the break, Vuskovic produced a moment of real quality on the stroke of half-time that helped his team on their way to victory. With the visitors having a free-kick in a central position 20 yards out from goal, John Yeboah played it to Ante Crnac who was stood next to the wall and it looked for certain that the forward was going to score.
However, Vuskovic was alert to the danger and somehow nipped in to produce an incredible block on the slide that diverted Crnac's effort away for a corner. It was some piece of defending from the player and it was no surprise to see him celebrate his block as four of his teammates ran over to congratulate him for his heroics.
It proved to be a vital moment in the contest as Radom ran out 2-1 winners. Vuskovic's numbers (via FotMob) in terms of both sides of his game from his 90 minutes on the pitch were very impressive.
Winning five of his six duels in the contest, he also made 12 clearances, seven headed clearances and five recoveries. The player then registered a pass completion rate of 86% from his 21 passes, he was accurate with three of his four long balls and he made four passes into the final third.
Next up for Vuskovic and Radomiak Radom is an away trip to LKS Lodz on Sunday afternoon. The defender is quite clearly thriving in Poland at present and his form will no doubt have impressed those watching on at Tottenham.

Even now, not many people in Croatia know about him, looks like great piece of scouting from our team. If we can do signings like this and Bergvall every year or two then future will be bright.

He is joining us in 2025, probably getting a loan somewhere next season.
Isn't he just returning Hadjuk Split? He is joining us at 2025, but still a Split player playing on loan at Polish league?

So could link up with Perisic next season

Yeah but Hajduk have the best defense in the league, can't see him starting there.
