Bournemouth defender Charlie Daniels admits he wants Tottenham Hotspur to win the Premier League title

The former Spurs youngster is backing his old club to reel in Leicester City.

Tottenham Hotspur have received a lot of praise for their youth system recently but of course not all the talented players that come through their academy will make it at White Hart Lane.

One who didn’t make the grade was Charlie Daniels. He joined Spurs as a boy from the Norwich City academy and signed his first pro deal with the club in 2005. He spent time out on loan with Chesterfield, Leyton Orient and Gillingham before signing for Orient permanently in 2009.

Now he is playing in the Premier League at Bournemouth and today (21/04/16) featured on Sky Sports News HQ.

The Cherries star was asked who he wanted to win the Premier League and, perhaps expectedly, he made it clear he wanted Spurs to beat neutrals favourites Leicester City to the title:

“It’s the team that gave me my upbringing, gave me a great chance to become a professional footballer and actually gave me my first professional contract.

“So to see what they’re doing this season is fantastic. Hopefully they can finish it off and catch Leicester.”

Daniels is clearly one of the few Premier League players who actually wants Leicester to slip up and Tottenham to pick up the Premier League title.

Tottenham closed the gap to just five points behind Leicester on Monday night with a 4-0 triumph against Stoke City and look like having the easier run-in.

So who knows? Maybe Daniels will get his wish.
