Kenny McEvoy confirms permanent Tottenham exit, says he decided five months ago

Kenny McEvoy will be leaving Tottenham.

21-year-old whizkid Kenny McEvoy will be leaving Tottenham on a permanent basis to join York City.

McEvoy has been on loan at the League Two club for the past few weeks, and has impressed during his spell there.

He has now used his Twitter page to confirm he will join on a permanent basis, as he could not see a future at Tottenham Hotspur - and even decided five months ago that this would be the case.

While the two clubs are yet to announce a permanent decision over McEvoy's future, his statement makes it very clear he does not see that there is a future at Spurs.

McEvoy is a winger who was once compared to Gareth Bale, partly in physical resemblance as well as possessing the ability to impact games.

He has not played a single first team game for the Premier League side, and at 21, needs to play regular football, and this is a decision which he has evidently taken plenty of time to consider, and Spurs fans will no doubt wish him plenty of luck for the future.
