Tottenham Hotspur completed an excellent piece of business when they agreed a deal to sign Dele Alli in the winter. According to the BBC the club agreed to pay £5 million for the 19-year-old, sending him back to Milton Keynes on loan for the rest of the season as part of the deal.
The England youth international has had a fantastic season for Milton Keynes, scoring 16 goals in 43 appearances and being nominated for the League One Player of the Year award, coming in second to Preston striker Joe Garner.
Now the midfielder has also been placed in the PFA League One Team of the Year.
He was slotted into midfield alongside a former Tottenham prospect, Australian international Massimo Luongo of Swindon Town.
After hearing news of his inclusion in the XI he Tweeted this message, thanking his peers for their votes after his incredible season:
Privileged to be named in the @PFA Team of the Year. Thanks to all the players who voted for me!— dele alli (@dele_alli36) April 26, 2015
Tottenham fans are rightly excited about the future this boy may have at White Hart Lane. Whether or not he will go straight into the first-team picture next season remains to be seen, but judging by his form this campaign he might just be up for it.
