Alli named in Football League's top 10 players alongside midfielder Spurs sold

Tottenham WHL

Tottenham Hotspur's Dele Alli has received recognition for his form this season, but Massimo Luongo's inclusion in FourFourTwo's top 10 Football League players may make the Lilywhites regret letting him go.

Tottenham Hotspur newboy Dele Alli has been named in the top 10 Football League players by FourFourTwo Magazine.

Alli, who is currently on loan at MK Dons following a January switch to Spurs, has been in fine form in League One this season and has been ranked as the seventh best player plying his trade outside the top-flight.

It shows just how much talent the 18-year-old already has at his disposal, and he will be hoping to showcase all of that quality when he does make the move to White Hart Lane.

Alli was not the only player in the top 10 with Tottenham connections, though. Swindon Town's Massimo Luongo, who Spurs sold earlier in his career, was named as the ninth best player in the lower divisions and it may be that the London club are regretting letting the central midfielder go.

Luongo has been in brilliant form for Swindon all season and he has even shown his class on the international stage with Australia.

At 22-years-old, he looks to be one of the brightest prospects in League circles and, had he still been at Spurs, he may have been able to play a part at a higher level.

Bournemouth's Matt Ritchie was named as number one in FourFourTwo's chart, while Middlesbrough's Grant Leadbitter was second and Callum Wilson, another Bournemouth star, was third.
