He could be a role model for billions of people around the world.

His impact as a South Asian player is huge. Loads of people play and grassroots level and none make it to the top.

I'm keeping my fingers crossed he gets to be that role model wearing a spurs shirt. Of any youth player we've had I hope he makes it to the top.
You’re spot on, as a British Asian myself it makes me immensely proud and excited that he’s coming through our academy and will hopefully be regularly pulling on our shirt.
 
Dylan Markanday sound like 3 blokes who flat share together in some posh North West London block....

...or is that Dylan, Mark and Andy?!!!

Hearing good things about him, (and Etete) but as we're still waiting on Dane Scarlett to get going.... Let's take the time with them... Maybe a Jan loan move for him too?? no presh presh!
 
only watched a couple of U23 matches, but this lad looks more ready for moving up than Scarlett
maybe because of te position he plays, Scarlett is trying to be a CF where you get bished & boshed by CH's that will be hard for a kid
 
Aren’t there some contract problems? Ie he won’t sign one?
His current contract runs until 30th June 2022 so if he doesn't sign a new one before January, then on paper he's allowed to sign a precontract with another club, although there's also a good chance Tottenham have a triggerable extra year clause in his current contract to keep him until June 2023 as they have with most of the youth players, so not 100% sure how that works with precontracts.
Think there was talk that the club were planning on offering him a new contract soon but you would think that he would want more than just another 1 year extension as he has previously got. Probably something similar to what CCV got which I think was a 2 year deal with an option to extend it a year every time the club agrees a loan deal.

Let's not get too emotional about a completely unproven young player leaving. Absolutely no guarantees he goes on to do anything more than John Bostock or Cameron Carter Vickers.
 
Literally just came here like "damn, it's about time this lad starts getting talked about more" so good to see this thread made!

I've been following him a bit over the last year or so and keep being impressed by his effort and output. Really hope he can impress Conte. If Scarlet is getting game time while being so green I see no reason Dilan shouldn't.

Maybe send out on loan in Jan? Get some proper competition in him
 
Good luck to him. I wonder (if he comes good) if he'll end up being talked about more because of being of south asian descent, which is a rarity in the PL considering their proportion of the population - hopefully that doesn't get focussed on too much and he can just be his own guy.

I agree with _Keano_ _Keano_ that if he's good enough, he should be getting loaned out to a Championship or League 1 side in January. At the very least we should be using the Europa Conference League to get him some minutes if a match is dead.
