Ryan Loft, Pritchard, Yedlin impressing


Yedlin impressing

Tottenham Under-21 side took on League Two side Yeovil Town this week with the game ending 1-1 at Hotspur Way. Young English 18-year-old (19 in September) striker Ryan Loft equalised from a Shilow Tracey cross late on.

There are reportedly 10 Championship clubs interested in 23-year-old (24 next May) midfielder Alex Pritchard. The England Under-21 international is also wanted by Premier League sides Middlesbrough and Swansea City.

Josh Onomah is coming through, Harry Winks is a part of the Development Squad looking to move up to senior level, Grant Ward is another and Marcus Edwards is a young talent we need to give cameo roles to. That means we have ti have opportunities for them and having Njie and Pritchard in the way, having not yet proved themselves may be part of the reason Pritchard is being let go.

Fazio, Pritchard, Njie are looking for clubs, Bentaleb may well be staying and Pochettino is assessing the future of a number of youngsters on tour. One who is starting to catch the eye, because of his improvement is DeAndre Yedlin.

As reported last year, he was miles away on technical ability, but the 23-year-old (24 next July) has improved immensely in a year apparently. The loan spell at Sunderland under Sam Allardyce, who was forced to play him after his right back was a complete flop.

He has always been a fit player and has immense speed, it seems he is catching up in other areas of the game and may well be a player we want to keep hold of, even if it means loaning him out again.

If at all possible Spurs will want to keep him to keep a US marketing tool and interest in Spurs in the States, especially with American Football coming to The Lane in the not too distant future.
