Santiago joined the Spurs academy at the beginning of the season from his hometown club Celta Vigo.
While he might not be the first name that springs to mind at the moment, the 17-year-old has given a small sneak peek of what he has to offer.
Prior to the nationwide lockdown, the Spaniard made 10 appearances in the U-18’s Premier League, picking up one goal before football was suspended due to the ongoing pandemic (Transfermarkt).
If the clip is anything to go by, Santiago has definitely shown he knows how to find the back of the net.
The youngster’s footage has divided the Lilywhites faithful though, as a fan tweeted his “first touch was terrible,” while another dubbed the teenager a “baller.” One supporter even suggested he is the “next Fabregas.”
Take a look at some of the mixed reactions down below…
Good skill but looks one footed.

Yago Santiago the next Saul

So he’ll probably end up playing for a second division Belgian club in two seasons.
