6 wonderkids who represent the future of Tottenham Hotspur
So far it hasn’t yet materialised for ‘The Boss’ and despite flashes of genius while on loan at Hull (a wonder-goal on his debut), we haven’t seen a great deal from the youngster that promted interest from Barcelona, Arsenal, Manchester United and Chelsea.
Whilst at the club, Brentford manager Andy Scott drew comparisons between Bostock and footballing legend Zinedine Zidane – let’s just hope he doesn’t buckle under the expectation.
5. Kyle Walker: Age 20; Kyle was signed by Harry Redknapp along with talented defender Kyle Naughton. Following loan spells to Sheffield United and QPR, the right-back has recently joined Gerard Houllier’s Aston Villa. The Premier League experience will no doubt do Walker good and he has already shown signs of blossoming by netting on his debut in the FA Cup third round against his former club.
4. Harry Kane: Age 17; Harry played 22 times for the U-18s during the 2009/10 season, hitting an impressive 18 goals in the process. Kane’s reputation at the club is such that at just 16, he found himself on the bench in a Carling Cup tie with Everton.
The striker has recently joined Leyton Orient on loan until the end of the season – There’s a buzz around this lad.
3. Dean Parrett: Age 19; Tottenham beat London rivals Arsenal to grab the signature of this all-action QPR midfielder. As ever, an England youth international, Parrett was given his first team debut last season when he was selected to start in Tottenham’s Europa League first leg knockout tie against eventual cup winners Shakhtar Donetsk. The youngster is now back at Spurs following a short loan move to Plymouth Argyle.
2. Sandro: Age 21; Coming through the Academy at Sport Club Internacional with the likes of Alexandre Pato, Sandro was purchased for a fee thought to be in the region of €10m. The midfield powerhouse already has 3 Brazil caps to his name. Expect a few more to come.
1. Andros Townsend: Age 19; A product of the Tottenham Academy, this pacey left-winger is confident on the ball and not afraid to take players on. In the Aaron Lennon-mould, Andros scored on his first-team debut against Charlton in the FA Cup third round.
He may need to work on his final ball, but with David Beckham’s watchful eye at White Hart Lane, expect him to learn a trick or two.
