Tottenham to reportedly announce Shilow Tracey deal this week; Ebbsfleet pleased with negotiations

Tottenham Hotspur look set to complete a January signing in the coming days.

According to a report from the Guardian Tottenham Hotspur are closing in on a deal to sign Ebbsfleet United midfielder Shilow Tracey, with an announcement likely to be made by the end of the week.

The 17-year-old has been linked with Spurs for a while now and he spent time on trial at White Hart Lane back in October. However it seems things are moving forward and manager Mauricio Pochettino could be about to add yet another talented young player to his ranks.

The report goes on to claim that Ebbsfleet have been impressed with the way Tottenham have conducted themselves in the negotiations and are eager to maintain a good working relationship in the future.

Whether that means other players moving between the two clubs in due course remains to be seen, but it certainly shows that Tottenham were keen to make a good impression as they worked on a deal for a player tipped to be a future gem.

Able to play either in central midfield or behind the front-man, Tracey is likely to work his way through Tottenham’s under-18 and under-21 sides if a move does go through as expected.
