Taking a look at three Tottenham Hotspur teenagers who should head out on loan next season.
Tottenham Hotspur have a large number of promising young players coming through the ranks right now and if they all fulfil their potential, the North London club could have a very bright future both domestically and in Europe.
The next few months will be all about impressing manager Mauricio Pochettino in pre-season training, but after that some of Spurs’ next generation will surely be heading out on loan to continue their development.
Here we take a look at three Tottenham youngsters who could benefit from a temporary spell away from White Hart Lane to play regular first-team football.
Kyle Walker-Peters is one of the jewels in Tottenham’s under-21 crown, having racked up 33 appearances at that level despite being only 19.
The right-back took the captains’ armband on occasion last season and next year is the right time for him to try his hand elsewhere.
An England under-19 international, he could excel at the right club in the lower tiers having proved he is ready for the step up from second-string football with a number of fine performances.
There are some Tottenham fans who are hoping striker Shayon Harrison gets first-team chances in North London next season. However with rumours of two new strikers arriving at the club this summer, the teenager’s chances of senior football in the short-term will be severely limited.
Instead the 18-year-old should be sent out on loan to a League One club where he could have a big impact after averaging a goal every other game for Tottenham’s under-21s.
Midfielder Anton Walkes impressed after stepping up to Tottenham’s under-21s last season, scoring four goals in 21 appearances.
His versatility is second to none, with the 19-year-old able to operate in any one of six different positions, and that could be a key reason that attracts a lower league club to enquire about his services this summer.
