Tim Sherwood speaks highly of Liverpool and Tottenham Hotspur-linked Demarai Gray

Tim Sherwood is full of praise for Birmingham City winger Demarai Gray, who has been linked with Liverpool and Tottenham Hotspur.

Former Tottenham Hotspur manager Tim Sherwood has been singing the praises of Birmingham City winger Demarai Gray.

The 18-year-old winger has been in impressive form for Birmingham so far this season, scoring four goals and creating 14 chances in 16 Championship appearances, while having a pass accuracy of 78% and a shot accuracy of 56%.

Gray’s rise this campaign has led to reports claiming that Premier League duo Liverpool and Tottenham Hotspur are interested in him (click here to read more).

Sherwood, who was in charge of the Spurs for the second half of last season, has included the teenager in his list of rising stars to watch out for in 2015.

“He has attracted a lot of interest from Premier League clubs, especially after his hat-trick against Reading last Saturday,” the Englishman wrote about Gray in The Independent. “I hope if he leaves he joins one that will give him first-team opportunities.”

Two other youngsters who made Sherwood’s list are 22-year-old Ben Gladwin of Swindon Town and Ipswich Town’s 18-year-old midfielder Teddy Bishop.
