Baardsen has been pushed back to third choice at White Hart Lane by the Bosman signing of Neil Sullivan, and he was already unsettled and disappointed at playing second fiddle to Ian Walker last term.
Gillingham were keen on signing the 22-year-old on a year`s loan, and Graham Taylor may be set to strike a similar deal, if he can meet the personal demands of the shot-stopper.
Ian Walker looks likely to start the season for Spurs after being handed the number one shirt, and starting the 4-0 win in Byske on Wednesday, but Sullivan is likely to offer a strong challenge for a first team spot as the campaign progresses.
