Some Tottenham Hotspur fans are reacting to transfer gossip.

Well, kind of.

He isn’t exactly Kylian Mbappe in terms of profile, but Spurs have reportedly taken a youngster on trial.

When Tottenham’s first XI for an Under-18 clash was released on Saturday, the name Sayers stood out for some supporters.

And The Echo has reported that it is Charlie Sayers of Southend United.

The 17-year-old defender has already made his senior debut for the Shrimpers, clocking six games this season.

And here’s how some Lilywhites fans reacted to hearing who the mystery man – or teen – is.

Derogatory

Being a left-back, there was some insensitive comments from the fanbase about Ryan Sessegnon.

Sessegnon, also a left-back, was sent off in Spurs’ shock defeat by Slovenian minnows Mura on Thursday night.

And some supporters joked that Sayers was already better than the former Fulham prospect, who cost £20 million in 2019.

These are a small minority of Tottenham fans, it has to be said.

It’s a poor time for the Lilywhites to take a left-back on trial if you’re Ryan Sessegnon.

But the 21-year-old is a class act and it’ll be interesting to see what – if anything – comes off Sayer’s reported trial at the club.
