Tottenham Hotspur officials have been left impressed by an exciting unseen talent in striker Jamie Donley, according to Alasdair Gold.
The Lowdown: Spurs academy thriving…
The N17 academy has been one of Spurs’ crown jewels as a football club for the last ten years, and most recently, dazzling youngsters like Dane Scarlett and Oliver Skipp have been making quite the impression.
Developing homegrown talent looks to be among Tottenham’s most crucial philosophies in north London, as evidenced by their transfer policy.
Lilywhites boss Antonio Conte recently admitted to the media that young right-back Djed Spence, for instance, was a club signing – perhaps exemplifying their want to build young stars for the future.
Now, the Premier League side boast a wealth of promising gems with midfielder Alfie Devine, Will Lankshear and others growing their reputations.
The Latest: Gold makes Donley claim…
As per reliable football.london journalist Gold, Spurs supporters may have another youngster to grow enthusiastic over that they haven’t even seen yet.
Indeed, writing his latest update on the club’s glistening academy, he says forward Donley, who has started featuring for Tottenham’s Under-21s, may well be one to watch.
He says ‘the future looks bright’ (via Twitter) when referencing the young striker and others – going on to mention in his report that Donley is ‘highly regarded’ by Spurs staff.
The Verdict: Exciting…
Other members of the media, like reporter Josh Bunting of the Islington Gazette, have called Donley a ‘fantastic young talent’ – so it’s clear his stock just keeps on growing despite not making a first-team squad yet.
Statistically, the England youth international wowed for Spurs’ U18s last season – netting a quite remarkable 16 goals in just 18 league games, also adding six assists (Transfermarkt).
Indeed, fans may well have reason to keep close watch on the teenager’s development.
