Tottenham: Wenham blown away by Scarlett

Tottenham: Wenham blown away by Scarlett -Tottenham Hotspur News

Tottenham Hotspur ‘insider’ John Wenham has been left blown away by rarely-seen youngster Dane Scarlett amid his temporary spell at Portsmouth.

The Lowdown: Massive potential…

Bursting on to the scene under former boss Jose Mourinho, with the ex-Premier League title-winning boss having called him a ‘diamond‘, Scarlett found game time slightly harder to come by under Antonio Conte.

Spurs fans, do you remember who scored your first goal of the season against Man City?

The England Under-19 international was rarely used or even seen in the squad last season at Spurs, playing just three top flight minutes over the entirety of the last campaign.

As a result, Spurs saw fit to green-light a loan move to Portsmouth so Scarlett can gain some much-needed senior experience in the lower leagues.

The Latest: Scarlett praised…

Speaking to Football Insider, club ‘insider’ Wenham, who regularly breaks news on his Lilywhite Rose social media accounts, has singled out the teenager for praise.

“I’m really pleased for Dane. I have seen videos, the Portsmouth matchday-going support love him, they have loved him from day one.

“That will be because he doesn’t stop running, he presses high, he has pace, commitment.

“I can now see him starting plenty of games for Portsmouth and this is a club at the top end of League One.

“It has been really, really impressive from a lad who has just turned 18. I’m really pleased.”

The Verdict: Great news…

News of Scarlett thriving so far at Fratton Park will be music to the ears of both Spurs supporters and club hierarchy – he has two direct goal involvements in his first six League One matches, a goal and assist apiece.

The winger has been tipped for real stardom at N17 in future seasons, but first he must gain valuable know-how by plying his trade in a very competitive and physical division in League One, and it will be interesting to see how his end product develops in the next 10-12 months.
