Notts County striker Kion Etete could be joining Tottenham Hotspur.

Tottenham Hotspur’s first team drew 1-1 at home to Arsenal on Saturday afternoon in a dramatic, controversial encounter – but their Under-18’s were also in action.

Spurs Under-18’s took on their West Ham United counterparts in a London derby at Hotspur Way on Saturday morning, with the game somewhat overshadowed by the North London derby.

Tottenham came away 5-3 winners after racing into a 4-0 lead, and whilst Mauricio Pochettino’s son Maurizio scored, he wasn’t the main talking point of the game.

Kion Etete scored twice for Spurs, and if fans aren’t too familiar with his name in relation to Tottenham, that’s more than fair; he was a trialist for the game.


The Notts County teenager, 17, has already made six first-team appearances for the League Two side, but was allowed to play for Spurs as a trialist on Saturday.

Scoring twice in the first half is some way to make an impact, and the teenager has surely given himself a great chance of earning a permanent move to Tottenham this summer.

Notts County fans have now taken to Twitter to react to the news, begging Etete to stay but understanding that it’s hard to reject a club like Tottenham, believing that he’s probably already gone.

Others want Etete sold quickly to ease the club’s financial issues, with some joking that a £7million fee would be needed to prise him away from Meadow Lane as they backed him for a bright future.
