The young defender has his eyes on the Tottenham first-team.

Tottenham Hotspur have recently picked up a good reputation for the development of young players at White Hart Lane.

The likes of Harry Kane, Ryan Mason and Andros Townsend are all current youth-team graduates in the Spurs first-team picture.

All three of them also spent plenty of time out on loan from the club.

From Millwall to QPR, from Lorient to Swindon Town - Tottenham have utilised the loan market better than most.

One man who recently went out on loan from Spurs was Christian Maghoma. He has joined League Two strugglers Yeovil Town until the New Year and has been speaking about his move to the Western Gazette this week.

He stated:

"It's important to want to do well. I also want to make it at Tottenham too so to impress them is also the goal for me.

"I want to improve as a player, gain that experience and help the team get out of the relegation battle."

The 18-year-old defender made the step up to the Under-21s last season and is considered one of the better youngsters in the Tottenham set-up.

In joining The Glovers he follows in the footsteps of Townsend, Mason and Steven Caulker in heading to Huish Park for a temporary spell.

If he can follow in their footsteps, he would have done well.
