Report: Tottenham Hotspur want Everton defender Brendan Galloway

Tottenham reportedly want to sign Brendan Galloway from Everton.

According to a report in the Daily Mail, Everton youngster Brendan Galloway has been garnering interest from Tottenham Hotspur, having shown his talents in the Premier League this season.

The 19-year-old English youth international has established himself in the Toffees' first-team this season, with eight of his 10 appearances for Everton coming this term. He moved to Goodison Park from MK Dons in the summer of 2014, and despite his age, and shown his ability and potential with a series of fantastic performances.

Despite naturally being a central defender, Galloway has been turning out as a left-sided full-back this term due to the injury to Leighton Baines, and he has done nothing but impress.

He has missed just two games this term through injury, and it is hard to suggest he should be dropped from the starting XI when Baines is back in action.

These performances have reportedly piqued the interest of Tottenham, who are looking to bolster their already young first-team with another star of the future.

There is no reference as to Spurs being ready to make an approach for Galloway in the coming months, but if they ever do submit an offer, it is almost guaranteed that Everton will reject their youngster leaving Merseyside.
