Another of Tottenham Hotspur's young prospects is hoping to impress the club's coaches.

Tottenham Hotspur youngster Luke Amos has been speaking to the FA’s official website following his return from the international wilderness.

The central midfielder played for England’s under-18 side against Switzerland on Saturday – a match the young Three Lions side won 6-1.

The 18-year-old has not featured for his country at any level since turning out in the Victory Shield-winning campaign of 2012. But the defensive midfielder is clearly happy to be back.

“I wasn’t even thinking about it,” he said of the possibility of playing his way back into contention. “My main aim was to play well for Spurs and impress all of my coaches there.

“But when I got the call to say I was going to be involved with England again I was delighted.”

When the Tottenham youngster last pulled on an England shirt he was an attacking midfielder, but his game has developed since then and now he is more of a holding player.

It is a tough position to master, but if a player gets it right he can become invaluable to his side.

That is surely what Amos intends to do at White Hart Lane, having seen a number of young Tottenham players given a chance in the first-team in recent times.

Amos has turned out three times for Tottenham’s under-21 side this season, and he was also part of the club’s FA Youth Cup side that narrowly lost to Chelsea in the semi-final after the entertaining tie ended 5-4 on aggregate to the Blues.

Now the task will be finishing the season strongly before hopefully getting the chance to show Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino what he can do in pre-season.
