Tottenham Hotspur should throw teenage defender Milos Veljkovic in at the deep end this weekend

The Serbian under-21 international has recently recovered from a dislocated shoulder.

Tottenham Hotspur have struggled in recent weeks, with their defence seriously struggling for their best form.

Vlad Chiriches got sent off in the last game against Stoke City, who tore through the likes of Jan Vertonghen, Federico Fazio and Eric Dier to shreds.

Tottenham's season is now essentially over, but should they consider giving a younger talent a go now the seniors seem to have gone on a early holiday.

One player who should be considered is Milos Veljkovic.

The 19-year-old, who arrived from FC Basel in 2011, has spent time on loan at Charlton Athletic this term, but was initially ruled out until the end of the season with a dislocated shoulder back in February.

The Serbian under-21 international has featured for Spurs twice in the Premier League back in April and May 2014.

A year later and he would love a chance to feature again.

He recently got back into action for the under-21s and is back in full fitness, so would certainly be an option for Spurs.

The likes of Grant Hall and Cameron Carter-Vickers would also want a go in the first-team and Mauricio Pochettino would be right to give one of them a chance.
