Ugo Ehiogu says Tottenham youngster Luke Amos was outstanding for U21s against Middlesbrough

The Tottenham Hotspur teenager is impressing out of position at under-21 level.

Tottenham Hotspur’s under-21 coach Ugo Ehiogu has been speaking to the club’s official website after his side overcame their Middlesbrough counterparts 2-1 on Monday afternoon.

Goals from Shaq Coulthirst and Anton Walkes secured the victory and maintained Spurs under-21s' impressive start to the campaign.

Tottenham’s next generation are among the most exciting in the country and when you consider how many young players have already broken into Mauricio Pochettino’s first-team, the future looks very bright at White Hart Lane.

Of those now seeking to make an impact, midfielder Luke Amos is particularly exciting and Ehiogu reserved special praise for the 18-year-old who has been tasked with playing at left-back in recent matches.

Amos has already made waves at this level in a holding role and a more advanced position and his versatility marks him out as one to watch, with his last five under-21 appearances coming in defence.

Speaking to after the game, Ehiogu said, “Luke Amos was outstanding, playing out of position again, he has our trust and he should be proud of that.”

At just 18, Amos has a long way to go before he is pushing for a first-team chance at Spurs, but at this rate when he does Pochettino will be able to field him in a number of different positions if required.
