Media praise ‘talented’ unseen youngster at Tottenham

Media praise 'talented' unseen youngster at Tottenham - Premier League News

Tottenham Hotspur have ‘another talented’ unseen youngster in their ranks as members of the media heap praise on Jamie Donley.

The Lowdown: Spurs academy line…

In the last few years, Spurs’ N17 academy has produced gem after gem with the likes of Oliver Skipp and Dane Scarlett drawing praise in particular.

The former has been called a ‘future Spurs captain’ and the latter was handed his debut by ex-Spurs head coach Jose Mourinho – who likened the player to Marcus Rashford.

Elsewhere, the likes of Japhet Tanganga and Troy Parrott have turned heads at various points.

In recent weeks, the north Londoners have been rewarding their best and brightest with fresh terms – including promising young shot-stopper Alfie Whiteman.

The likes of Mikey Moore and Donley, who are yet to make first team appearances, remain unseen as far as Antonio Conte is concerned but the media are convinced Tottenham have a real gem in the latter man.

The Latest: Media praise Donley…

After Spurs rewarded the 18-year-old with a new deal, members of the media heaped praise on Donley, claiming he is a real one to watch.

They explained:

“Can either play as a forward or a number 10 type. Has excellent movement, ability to pick a pass and read the game and fantastic finishing ability.” – Spurs pundit John Wenham, via his Lilywhite Rose account.

“Another talented forward off the N17 production line… Donley has been a key part of the U18s and U21s this season.” – George Session, PA Media.

“There’s that new three-and-a-half year Spurs contract for Jamie Donley, with an option for another year. He’s got plenty of potential.” – Alasdair Gold,

The Verdict: Exciting player…

The England Under-18 international has been seriously impressing at youth level for Spurs.

As per Transfermarkt, Donley racked up a pretty incredible 16 goals and six assists in 18 appearances for the Under-18s last season.

The teenage talent has continued that form into 2022/2023, scoring three goals and assisting three others in five Premier League Under-18 appearances this term.

That form resulted in a promotion to Tottenham’s Under-21s, where he has 14 appearances under his belt this campaign.

Indeed, going by the numbers, he could well be one to watch in the next few seasons.
