Clinton N'Jie's comments highlight transfer market advantage Tottenham Hotspur hold thanks to Mauricio Pochettino

Clinton N'Jie says he joined Tottenham Hotspur because of the progress that Harry Kane, Nabil Bentaleb and Erik Lamela have made.

Clinton N'Jie's comments to the Daily Mail regarding the progress of Tottenham Hotspur's youngsters being one of the key reasons why he joined the club have highlighted a key advantage that the side hold in future transfer windows. 

Mauricio Pochettino has placed great emphasis on entrusting young players to guide the club forward, with the Argentine boss thrusting a number of youngsters into his team.

Spurs have one of the most youthful squads in the Premier League, with the likes of Harry Kane, Nabil Bentaleb and Ryan Mason all stepping up from the academy ranks to become senior stars. 

Tottenham have also brought in the likes of Eric Dier and Dele Alli, who they have thrown straight into their starting line-up, despite a relative lack of experience. 

And the faith that they have shown in these players means that, although Spurs may not be able to offer new players Champions League football or a title challenge, for the time being, they can assure players that they will be given opportunities to impress.

The desire for instant success in modern day football means that youngsters can be overlooked in favour of more experienced stars at other clubs, with their route to stardom blocked as a result.

But at Spurs, there is clearly an ethos that if you are good enough, you are old enough, and that message is starting to go global.

With N'Jie aware of Pochettino's work, Spurs' reputation as being an excellent club to progress at is evidently growing, and it should put them at an advantage whenever they enter a transfer battle for another hot prospect in the future.
