The Tottenham Hotspur striker has been discussing the 19-year-old midfielder.

Tottenham forward Harry Kane is naturally impressed with Dele Alli's start to life at White Hart Lane, according to Sky Sports.

And the 22-year-old has explained that the teenager is a positive presence both in the dressing room and on the training round.

Alli first made an impact during pre-season against Real Madrid, when many took notice of the youngster and felt he could have a chance of making an impact on the first team this season.

Could became definitely would after his first competitive appearances and Alli is now a regular within the Spurs side, although he faces plenty of competition for a starting berth in midfield and will need to produce high standards consistently to maintain his place.

Kane told Sky Sports: "He's very mature for his age. He's a great lad to have around the dressing room, he's a bubbly character. He's come in and scored a couple of goals and settled very well.

"He's got a lot of stamina and runs a lot in games which suits us well. He's just got to keep on doing what he's doing and I'm sure he'll have many years to come at a high level. In training he's not afraid to show his skills and get out of tight situations. All round, he's a very good player."

No different to what the 19-year-old is like during matches for Tottenham, then, and that's another encouraging sign for the teenage talent.

Alli has recently been linked with Paris Saint-Germain, with the Ligue 1 champions said to have scouted him during Tottenham's most recent Europa League tie at Anderlecht by L'equipe.

This early in his White Hart Lane career, though, it makes perfect sense for Alli to stay in north London as opposed to approaching a foreign environment in which he won't be guaranteed any game time.
