Tottenham Expert names three youth players in line for promotion amid recent developments

Tottenham News is delighted to welcome John Wenham of Lilywhite Rose as our exclusive columnist. Each week, he’ll be giving his expert insight on the biggest talking points at Spurs…

John Wenham believes three Under-18 stars at Tottenham could be in line for a promotion amid recent developments at Under-21 level.

Spurs’ Under-21s are flying high, currently sitting at the top of Premier League 2 after winning every game in the competition so far this season.

After a mid-season break, they will play again on Saturday, January 6, in the Premier League Cup against Bristol City Under-21s. However, they may make some roster changes in the coming weeks.

Josh Keeley, who has started a lot of the team’s games this season, has joined National League side Barnet on loan, thus he won’t be available for selection (Spurs’ Official Academy X, 4 January).

Furthermore, on January 2, Fabrizio Romano revealed on his official X account that Jude Soonsup-Bell might go out on loan following his strong performances this season.


Wenham believes a few more players will head out the door this month, which would open up pathways for some of the club’s Under-18 stars to be promoted.

In an exclusive interview with Tottenham News, Wayneham stated: “When the Under-21s play again, they’ll be a different team. Although I believe a few players may go on loan this month, there are many outstanding Under-18 players who are itching to advance, like Mikey Moore, Oliver Irow, and Damola Ajayi.

“All of these guys are capable of competing at a higher level and are willing to advance and make their mark.

“If Jamie Donley is one of the players that goes out on loan, they’ll be OK and have a more than capable focal point in Dane Scarlett, who is far too excellent for Under-21 football and could be leading the line.


“I’ve been incredibly impressed with the growth this season,” Donley and Alfie Dorrington appear to be a regular part of the first team squad these days, and they continue to play for the Under-21s, which is crucial since it ensures they aren’t losing out on any playing time.

“I’m happy for them, and I think Wayne Burnett did a great job.”

In other Tottenham news, this month’s transfer discussions for one of the team’s targets has been significantly influenced by Fabricio Paratici.
