Tottenham: Jude Soonsup-Bell hailed by John Wenham

Tottenham: Jude Soonsup-Bell hailed by John Wenham - Premier League News

Tottenham Hotspur‘s Jude Soonsup-Bell, who recently joined from Chelsea, is one of the ‘most highly-rated’ young strikers in England, according to club ‘expert‘ John Wenham.

The Lowdown: Spurs sign Soonsup-Bell

Tottenham confirmed the signing of Soonsup-Bell at the end of the January transfer window, signing from the Blues on a four-year deal that will run until June 2025.

The 19-year-old will initially be added to Spurs’ development squad, but the player himself has stated that he ‘won’t fear going to train with the first team’, given the learning experience he has had at Chelsea (via Daily Mail).

The Latest: Wenham reacts

In an interview with Football Insider, Wenham spoke of his elation that the youngster has agreed a move to Tottenham, saying: “I know a bit more about this guy than most.

“I have seen him come and play at Hotspur Way as part of Chelsea’s academy a few times. I would go as far as to say he is the most highly-rated academy forward in England, very exciting.

“He had a season where he scored something like 18 goals in 15 games. I think Chelsea picked him up from Swindon and he is very highly regarded.”

The Verdict: Good signing?

Once hailed as having ‘real potential’ by former Chelsea boss Frank Lampard, the starlet made history for the Blues by becoming their first player in 59 years to score four goals in an FA Youth Cup tie.

In the 2020/21 U18 Premier League season, the marksman netted on 14 occasions in 16 appearances, exhibiting all the right signs to make the step up to the Premier League 2.

Will Kane sign a new contract?





However, Soonsup-Bell has struggled at the higher level, scoring just twice in 19 appearances last season, and so there are question marks about whether he will make the grade as a Spurs player.

Given that he is still only very young and has little professional experience, it is too early to tell whether the striker will go on to be a success in a Tottenham shirt, and a loan move to an EFL team next season could be key to his development.
