Tottenham Hotspur: Insider makes promising claim as advanced Spurs player talks emerge

Tottenham Hotspur: Insider makes promising claim as advanced Spurs player talks emerge -Tottenham Hotspur News

Making a promising claim, Tottenham Hotspur ‘insider‘ John Wenham has shared what Ledley King has told him about youngster Malachi Fagan-Walcott as the Lilywhites enter advanced talks over a new deal for the player.

The Lowdown: Tottenham edge close to ‘breakthrough’…

As per Football Insider, lifting the lid on a major Monday development, Spurs are now in advanced talks over a new deal for Fagan-Walcott.

Indeed, as reported by the outlet, Spurs transfer chief Fabio Paratici is edging closer to a ‘breakthrough’ in talks to tie down the defender.

Fagan-Walcott, it is claimed, is nearer to penning an extension at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium with Wenham now sharing what he’s been told about the 19-year-old from King.

The Latest: Wenham makes promising claim…

Speaking to Football Insider, the Spurs source says Spurs rate the teenager ‘very highly’ and King ‘made it clear’ he sees ‘a lot of potential’ in Malachi-Walcott.

“He was out at Dundee last year but he got injured very early on in that loan spell,” Wenham said.

“As I say, this season has been a total stagnation of his development and hopefully if he signs this deal that means he can go out on loan for the full season next year.

“I had the pleasure of interviewing Ledley King a few weeks ago and I asked him about our young defenders.

“He made it clear to me that he really rates Malachi and he’s one he sees a lot of potential in him.

“He has made his first-team debut as well in the Champions League under Mourinho.

“The club rate him very highly.”

The Verdict: Another eye-catching talent…

Amid the plethora of youngsters already at Tottenham, with the likes of Dane Scarlett, Oliver Skipp and Ryan Sessegnon springing to mind, news of Spurs nurturing yet another young talent will come as promising.

As the Lilywhites plan to tie down yet more big prospects in the academy as these advanced talks emerge, it will certainly be interesting to how Fagan-Walcott could evolve in the next few years.
