Tottenham Hotspur-owned Swansea City midfielder Tom Carroll is in line to win the England Under-21 Player of the Year award.

Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Tom Carroll has been nominated for the England Under-21 Player of the Year award.

The 22-year-old is currently on loan at Premier League outfit Swansea City and has been in decent form so far this season.

In seven Premier League appearances for the Swans, Carroll has created one chance and has a 90% pass accuracy.

It is with the England Under-21 side that the youngster has had the most success over the past 12 or so months, showing his skills and vision from a deep-lying role in central midfield.

Carroll was one of the best and most important players in the U21 side’s qualification to the 2015 European Championship.

Fellow Tottenham-owned midfield Alex Pritchard has also been nominated for England Under-21 Player of the Year award (click here to read more).

This suggests that Tottenham do have bright, young and talented players they can bring into the first team in the coming years.

Both Pritchard and Carroll are playing their football on loan this season and are scheduled to return to White Hart Lane next summer.

Given the way in which the two players are developing their game and gaining experience, they should certainly be given the chance to show what they can do for Tottenham next season.
