John McDermott has been impressed with four Spurs youngsters this weekend.

Tottenham's Head of Player Development John McDermott has told the club's official website that four teenagers have impressed him at the Terborg Tournament this weekend.

Spurs' academy are out in the Netherlands this weekend taking on a host of different teams in the Terborg Tournament, and drew 0-0 with Nacional de Colombia on Friday.

Today's games saw Tottenham lose 3-1 to Feyenoord before a 1-1 draw with Brazilian outfit Atletico Mineiro, meaning it's been an up-and-down tournament for Spurs.

It has though given a chance to a number of teenagers to show what they can do in a competitive environment against teams from around the world - and four players appear to have impressed.

Striker Aramide Oteh scored against Feyenoord and Atletico Mineiro to claim both of Tottenham's goals today, and the 17-year-old was one of the players hailed by Tottenham's Head of Player Development John McDermott.

McDermott spoke to the club's official website earlier today and admitted he was 'really pleased' with Oteh for his goal against Atletico Mineiro, and named three other players who impressed him too.

Midfielder George Marsh, defender Christian Maghoma and diminutive playmaker Samuel Shashoua - all of them talented English teenagers - received praise from McDermott, offer Spurs fans a glimpse of the next crop of young prospects, having seen Harry Kane, Ryan Mason, Joshua Onomah and Andros Townsend break into the first team in recent years.

"One of the positives from the day was George Marsh – he was excellent against Feyenoord and I thought he really stood out," said McDermott. "In the second game we were really pleased with Aramide who deserved his goal and I thought Christian Maghoma was excellent against Mineiro and picked up from where he left off last week in Amsterdam. Samuel Shashoua also showed little glimpses of quality in that game," he added.

Do you think Marsh, Oteh, Maghoma and Shashoua can make the grade at White Hart Lane?
