Tottenham Hotspur have added former England left-back Chris Powell to their scouting team on an ad-hoc basis, according to the Daily Mail. Powell boasts a strong knowledge of England's Football League in particular, having spent five of the last six years managing the likes of Charlton Athletic, Huddersfield Town and Derby County - albeit on a caretaker basis.

So which players might the 48-year-old recommend to his new employers?

Max Lowe (Derby)

Tottenham could be in need of a new left-back if speculation about Danny Rose's future proves true, and Lowe is one of the most promising outside the Premier League right now. Powell is already well aware of the 20-year-old, having handed him his league debut in his first game as Derby caretaker.

Ezri Konsa (Charlton)

Centre-back may be less of a pressing concern for Tottenham, but that could change if Toby Alderweireld moves on or the likes of Cameron Carter-Vickers and Juan Foyth fail to achieve their potential. Konsa, who was a 15-year-old in Charlton's youth ranks when Powell was sacked as manager, is another highly rated Football League talent with whom the former left-back should be familiar and he is already said to be on Spurs' radar.

Philip Billing (Huddersfield)

With Mousa Dembele now the wrong side of 30 and Moussa Sissoko proving more miss than hit so far, a new central midfielder could feature on Tottenham's agenda in the coming months and years. Billing is yet another player linked with a move to Spurs in the past, and made his first Huddersfield start in Powell's final game as Terriers boss.
