Members of the general media have been left thrilled by some ‘big news’ as Tottenham Hotspur confirm a new deal for wonderkid Alfie Devine.
The Lowdown: Devine dazzles…
Widely regarded as a special talent in the Lilywhites academy, reliable football.london journalist Alasdair Gold is among those to heap praise on Devine for his form with the Tottenham Under-23s.
Gold has called the midfielder an ‘organiser’ and states it is ‘fascinating’ to watch him in action, drawing particular attention to the player’s leadership qualities at such a young age (via Spurs Web).
Devine also starred at international level over the summer with England Under-19s, playing an instrumental role as the young Lions clinched a second European Championship.
The Latest: Devine new deal…
As a result of his terrific form, Spurs have now saw fit to reward the Englishman with a new deal running until 2027.
Given Devine’s vast potential, members of the media have reacted with glee to this news – claiming it is ‘big news’ for the north Londoners.
“This is big news. Was worried we would lose him.” – Matt Hayes, YouTuber and LastWordOnSpurs contributor (via Twitter).
“Get in” – Football Insider pundit John Wenham, writing via his Lilywhite Rose account.
“A Devine intervention. Lovely stuff.” – Paul O’Keefe, Spurs fan and FA registered intermediary (via Twitter).
The Verdict: Great news…
Tying down such a top talent like Devine can only come as good news, especially since he could soon be in demand based off the midfielder’s current trajectory.
Major European and domestic rivals could have one eye on the player given his terrific last 12 months so Spurs have made a really good move by strengthening their position through extending his deal.
Homegrown and a valuable asset, Devine joins the likes of Dane Scarlett as real ones to watch in the next few years.
