Tottenham Hotspur: John Wenham delighted with new deals for young duo

Tottenham Hotspur: John Wenham delighted with new deals for young duo -Tottenham Hotspur News

Tottenham ‘insider‘ John Wenham is delighted with the news that talented youngsters Malachai Fagan-Walcott and Brooklyn Lyons-Foster have signed new deals with the Lilywhites.

The Lowdown: New deals for Spurs duo

On 17 March, Spurs took to Twitter to announce that the two Development Squad players had signed new contracts with the club, keeping them at Hotspur Way until 2023.

Fagan-Walcott has particularly caught the attention of the senior Spurs staff this season, and the 19-year-old has been regularly training with Antonio Conte’s first team. For the under-23 side, he has made 14 appearances in this season’s Premier League 2, matching the tally of Lyons-Foster, who he partners at centre-back.

The Latest: Wenham thrilled with contract news

Wenham has been left delighted with the club’s latest two deals. Speaking with Football Insider, he gushed:

“I’m delighted. I was expecting this news, with Brooklyn especially. We know he won’t play again this season and Tottenham are quite good at showing loyalty when these things happen.

“He has done really well this year and he has developed as a central defensive midfield player. I’m really happy with his progress. With Malachai, he’s already his debut in the Champions League under Mourinho.

“I have mentioned before how Ledley King has told me how much he rates him. It is great to tie down a player like that, he’s a boyhood Tottenham fan too. So it’s really good news for us, even if it was expected.”

Will Tottenham finish in the top 4 this season?

Yes

Yes

No

No

The Verdict: Future looking bright

With Conte seemingly putting more faith in youth recently amid the first-team emergence of Dane Scarlett, the two new deals will come as great news for the Italian.

With both Fagan-Walcott and Lyons-Foster being centre-backs, their new contracts could come in very useful if the Lilywhites suffer a number of injuries across the back line, where the manager opts to play with three central defenders.

Tottenham’s aim to push for a top four finish this season should ensure their place in some European competition next term. Therefore, this will require further rotation of the squad, which should give these youngsters a chance to shine on the biggest stage.
