According to Football London, Tottenham Hotspur youngster Yago Santiago has been called up to first-team training over the past week.

Many of Tottenham’s key players are currently away representing their national sides, so Mauricio Pochettino have needed to bolster their numbers in senior training.

And Santiago is one of the Tottenham youngsters who have benefited from the absences of so many senior players.

 

The 16-year-old midfielder is considered one of Tottenham’s most promising prospects, and Pochettino has been keen to keep a closer eye on him this week.

The teenager will be hoping that he has done enough to show that he can play at senior level again in future, as he looks to make the grade at Spurs.
