Ugo Ehiogu: Watch out for these three youngsters at Tottenham

Tottenham Hotspur youth coach Ugo Ehiogu has named three of the club's younger players to keep an eye on.

Tottenham Hotspur under-21 boss Ugo Ehiogu focused on three players when he was quizzed by talkSPORT over the talent coming through the youth ranks at the club.

Tottenham have a very successful recent track record of developing younger players, with the likes of Harry Kane, Ryan Mason, Nabil Bentaleb and more all graduating to become important parts of the first team at White Hart Lane.

“Technically we’re very good, we’ve got Luke Amos and Harry Winks who have acquitted themselves very well and Carters-Vickers has been immense in defence,” said Ehiogu.

Luke Amos, a central midfielder, is going to have a very tough time forcing his way into the senior ranks, because central midfield is one of the strongest areas of the current side.

Mauricio Pochettino is spoilt for choice in terms of the players he can pick for the middle of his team, with Alex Pritchard also performing well with current loan side Brentford.

Harry Winks is in the same position, although the fact he’s played for England already at three different levels of youth football suggests he’s definitely got something about him.

Cameron Carter-Vickers plays in a different position, centre back, although he also faces a long road to eventually force his way into the first team.

Eric Dier has shown that it is possible to perform in the Tottenham defence at a young age but CCV may have to follow the likes of Kane, Mason and Pritchard by doing the hard work out on loan and building up that experience before getting a crack in the first team at Spurs.
