Just surprised he didn't agree to join them full time and use them as a base to join a higher rated club in Spain later on - seems to like it over there, he speaks Spanish and has done quite well on loan there.Going by the emojis I reckon he will be back there next season
Is that the older or younger one? Are they at the same Spanish club?Just surprised he didn't agree to join them full time and use them as a base to join a higher rated club in Spain later on - seems to like it over there, he speaks Spanish and has done quite well on loan there.
Armando is the younger one.Is that the older or younger one? Are they at the same Spanish club?
I do realize I can Google this, but I believe you know more.
Decent selection of our youth.J'Neil Bennett
Bennett suffered from his own injury problems this season but looked to be on the rise again before academy football was shut down.
Bennett, who turned 18 in December, missed the start of the season through injury but made up for lost time by scoring in six of his 10 U18 Premier League matches before the campaign was curtailed.
He's also netted in the UEFA Youth League and has laid on four assists in all competitions.
The speedy England U18 international is a versatile attacker, naturally a left winger despite bring right-footed but also able to play on the right or up front if required.
Bennett made history as the first ever goalscorer at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, curling a wonderful, fitting shot into the net as the U18s beat Southampton in the first test event at the stadium, in front of almost 30,000 fans.
He's still raw as many young players are, but he's get terrific potential and if he keeps working hard Mourinho will take notice.
Bennett is also represented by Base, who are the agency for a number of the Premier League's top young talents including Dele Alli and James Maddison.
With Spurs spending money on bringing Devine in this week, it's worth noting that they did the same for Kion Etete last summer.
Etete was starting to step up more regularly to the development squad following his £200,000 move last summer from Notts County.
The 18-year-old is also an archetypal Mourinho-style striker. The big 6ft 4ins striker made four appearances in League Two for the Magpies last season as well as appearing in the FA Cup before moving to north London.
His progress at Spurs was interrupted by some niggling injury problems but he still managed a decent record of eight goals in 13 U18 matches with one goal in two appearances for the U19s in the UEFA Youth League.
The Derby-born forward has good control and awareness while his big frame makes him difficult to handle for defenders.
Spurs don't have anyone else like him in the first team and should Parrott get his loan move, particularly if the club sign a new striker during this transfer window, then Etete might be next in line for minutes in the cups if he impresses.
Totally agree.Austin, Lusala, Tanganga, Malachi-Walcott, Cirkin, Skipp, Devine, White, Bennett, Parrott, Etete
A few others like Robson etc who look promising, In all fairness we don’t have a bad academy set up by the sound of things really.
I would love Roles to be our kind of Mason Mount. He looks a very talented attacking midfielder,good intelligent movement and passing and can score goalsJack Roles will be an interesting one, obviously did very well in League Two so you'd assume he'd be looking at at potentially a Championship club for his next step, at least a League One team anyway.
Who knows, I think perhaps he should be out on loan once again at a Championship side to get experience at a higher level, and to test him in a more challenging league but he could well become a similar player to us like Mount did. Big difference in the two though, with Mount playing a season in the Championship and on top of that it was under his now boss too, who will know how best to use the player.I would love Roles to be our kind of Mason Mount.
