Current Stevenage team-mate heaps praise on Tottenham Hotspur teenager Connor Ogilvie

Stevenage

The left-back has been in great form for the League Two club.

Tottenham Hotspur have sent plenty of top young talent out on loan over the years and it seems they might have another top talent away on a temporary basis.

The Tottenham youngster in question is now trying to do the same as the likes of Harry Kane, Andros Townsend and Ryan Mason in making it at Spurs is young left-back Connor Ogilvie.

The 19-year-old joined up with former Tottenham striker Teddy Sheringham at League Two side Stevenage Borough.

Ogilvie recently scored his first professional goal. The defender struck in a sixth minute deflected effort to give Stevenage the lead against Plymouth Argyle in a 2-1 win.

Now a current teammate has been singing his praises. Mark Hughes, a former Everton youngster who joined the club from Morecambe this summer, said of Ogilvie in an interview with the Hertfordshire Mercury:

"He has been excellent. I remember when we played against Spurs and I thought he was excellent.

"I play next to him and I see a lot more of him. He's still got a long way to go. But he's got all the aspects. He's a fit lad, he'll get up and down, he's a good defender and he's good in the air.

"Hopefully he can kick on and Stevenage can be a place where he can learn his trade a little bit and hopefully he can kick on to bigger and better things."

Ogilvie’s loan deal at Stevenage expires next week and the League Two club will be likely to try and extend that deal, which will definitely sit well with Spurs considering the progress he has been making at the Lamex Stadium.
