Tottenham goalkeeper Tom Glover has been training with the senior team.

Speaking to Australian media outlet The Leader, young goalkeeper Tom Glover has commented on training with the first-team, having earned Pochettino’s respect with youth team displays.

The 17-year-old stopper said: “They [the first-team players] give me advice. If I let a bad goal in for example, they're never putting me down. They bring me back up. They're good guys as well: no one is cocky. They're all humble and they all talk to you.

“He’s [Pochettino] seen me play. He watched me against Chelsea. I heard from the youth team manager he was really impressed.”

Glover only moved to Spurs’ academy full-tim in August 2014, but became a regular fixture in the youth ranks, and travelled with the Lilywhites on their post-season tour of Malaysia and Australia.

He helped the North Londoner’s Under-18 side to the FA Youth Cup semi-final, where they lost to Chelsea, who eventually went on to win the trophy.

He is already a regular youth international for Australia, and big things are expected of him. Glover will be hoping to establish himself at Under-18 level next term, as well as starting to break into Under-21 level.

He is clearly thought of highly by Pochettino, and a solid season at youth level next term could see Glover start to break through into the Spurs first-team in the coming seasons.
