Talented Tottenham youngster is set to leave.
Bennetts has been one of the star players in Tottenham's under-23s this past season but he has not yet found a way through into the first team, with standards higher than ever.
There was no indication that was set to change next season and Bennetts has decided to try his luck abroad.
He is the latest of a series of young English talents to do so, led by Borussia Dortmund prospect Jadon Sancho who quit Manchester City last summer and is already featuring for the German giants' first team.
Letting Bennetts leave so easily looks like a potential error of judgement by Spurs without giving him a proper first team lok, especially after seeing Kyle Walker-Peters prosper in his limited opportunities.
Bennetts can play as a winger or a full-back and could have been a replacement for Danny Rose.
He at least would have been worth checking out in pre-season and potentially sending out on loan but this may not have been enough to keep Bennetts with Moenchengladbach promising a more prominent role.
Here is a look at the reaction to Bennetts departure...
Still sad to see Bennetts go, but can’t blame him. Spurs youngsters must be shown that there is a path to the first team, or we will continue to lose them. Disappointing that @SpursOfficial didn’t do more #COYS #THFC https://t.co/w9wazf5Txj— Tottenham Hotspur World (@WorldHotspur) May 16, 2018
keanan bennetts to gladbach is another huge move for a very talented english youngster, a trend that will continue until pathways are forged at top english clubs— Y️N conal (@Conal7x26) May 17, 2018
Keanan Bennetts moving to Gladbach for 2M. Was the most improved u23 player this season so it’s an unfortunate situation. Although from an English perspective it’s positive to see so many willing to move abroad.— Retro 4-4-2 (@Retro442) May 16, 2018
If we let one of Reo Griffiths or Keanan Bennetts go, let alone both, I'll lose it— SH (@BeIgianCB) May 16, 2018
