Tottenham Hotspur fans are already eyeing Luke McGee's return to the club.
McGee left his boyhood club after 11 years on Wednesday, signing a permanent deal with League One newcomers Portsmouth.

The 21-year-old shone while on loan to another third tier side, Peterborough United, last season, collecting their players' player of the year award, and many had expected him to rival Michel Vorm as Tottenham's second choice goalkeeper this coming campaign - especially given the uncertainty surrounding Pau Lopez's future in north London.
Lopez's loan spell expired at the end of last month and it remains to be seen if the Spaniard, whose Espanyol deal expires in June 2018, will return to Tottenham this summer.
As such, McGee's departure has been widely viewed as a mistake by Spurs, whose fans have left the door open to an encore later down the line.

After his Portsmouth move was confirmed, the Edgware native took to Twitter to thank those who have helped him down the years.
And this is how many Tottenham fans responded...
