The Australian is a hot prospect for the future.

Tottenham Hotspur have picked up a reputation in recent months for their development of top young talent.

The likes of Harry Kane, Ryan Mason and Nabil Bentaleb have all come through the ranks recently and there is plenty of hope for several other young talents at the club.

One such player was snapped in action with the Tottenham first-team today as the team prepared for their weekend clash with West Bromwich Albion.

The player in question is 17-year-old Australian goalkeeper Thomas Glover.

The talented stopper, who turns 18 on Christmas Eve, was pictured going through the paces at Tottenham training with the likes of Josh Onomah, Federico Fazio, Kieran Trippier and Erik Lamela.

Last season he received plaudits from none other than Tottenham's legendary goalkeeper Pat Jennings after a string of impressive performances for the Under-18s and Under-21s.

Glover joined up with Spurs from Sutherland Sharks in his Australian homeland in March last year after training with the club during school holidays for the previous two years.

He is of course not imminently going to make it into the Tottenham first-team, but he is certainly one to keep an eye on going forward.
