Sondre Bolme denies Tottenham Hotspur trial

Tottenham Hotspur were claimed to have Sondre Bolme in on trial.

Tottenham Hotspur have been in the news in Norway over the past 48 hours, regarding young talent Sondre Bolme.

Bolme is one of Norwegian football's most exciting young talents, and plays for Rosenborg's youth teams.

He was pictured alongside Tottenham Hotspur head coach Mauricio Pochettino, and a popular Tottenham fan twitter account claimed he was on trial at the club.

The claims attracted interest in Norway, and Norwegian newspaper Aftenposten got in touch with Bolme to find out if it was the case, only to learn no trial had taken place.

Instead he insisted the pictures had an innocent explanation and he is focused on Rosenborg, claiming the photos from last year, even though they were recently uploaded to Instagram.

Bolme is quoted: "I was with the junior department of the RBK training camp in London last summer, where the under-19 team met Tottenham. I did not play the game, but it was when I met Pocchettino. He was very nice."

The 16-year-old is claimed by Aftenposten to have a 'good story to tell his school buddies', but there is no transfer deal on the horizon.
