Tottenham midfielder Dele Alli is close to finalising his new team. Before you give wings to your imagination, let me say that the team we are talking about is his new management team!

After months of deliberation where he was courted by some of the best agents in the world, Alli has finalised the same agency that represents Jose Mourinho, Cristiano Ronaldo, and his Tottenham pal Harry Kane. (Telegraph)

This is by far the clearest indication that Dele is ready to test the waters as he bids to enter the highest tier of football earners. The midfielder’s commercial deals will be handled by the Creative Artists Agency (CAA) who have snapped up a number of European stars in recent years.

After this move, the England international will be represented by a team lead by Matthew O’Donohoe, who oversees the endorsements of both Ronaldo and Mourinho. It has been reported that Alli’s adoptive brother Harry Hickford will be Alli’s representative. Creative Artists Agency are to look after his commercial dealings and the Sports PR company will deal with his public relations.

Finally! This should put an end to months of competition for snapping one of the most coveted English players of this generation. Dele is coming to the end of his current representation contract with his current British agent Rob Segal. And ever since he announced that he is on the lookout for a new agent, there was a huge line waiting!

The 21-year-old has signed a six-year-contract at Spurs one year ago, although at £50,000-a-week, he is still on the lower side of wages. In all possibility, he could be offered another deal by Daniel Levy before the end of the season.

Clubs across Europe have been casting glances at Spurs with a view of signing Dele at some point in his career. The midfielder is already a vital player for the Three Lions and a good performance for the national side next year would go a long way in increasing Dele’s value.

This move to align with an agency will no doubt help Dele leverage his status. But, what about the club? Should Tottenham be worried about this change? I may sound pessimistic, but this could signal tough times for Levy and Tottenham.

Tottenham new stadium

Tottenham’s new stadium saw artificial lighting for the pitch being tested in the past week. The moveable lights are expected to help the pitch grow but there was no grass on the surface as per the video.

Football.london claims that the new pitch could be laid as early as October. The report adds that construction firm Mace revealed at a “Business Community Liaison Group” at Lilywhite House that the pitch would be laid in October.

The report adds that the dates for the test events would be revealed a month ahead of their schedule. The construction firm and club are certain that there would be no more delays regarding these events.

Football.london further claimed that an artificial NFL pitch has been installed at the base of our new home.

The latest revelations are good news for Tottenham fans who have been waiting for the stadium to be completed.

We all know that our first visitors were supposed to be Liverpool and we have been playing our Premier League home games at Wembley so far. Tottenham did play all their home games at Wembley last season as well and so, playing at this venue shouldn’t be a problem for the team.

Dele Alli

Tottenham will play their Carabao Cup Third Round clash against Watford at Stadium MK. The decision was taken with the help of the FA as Wembley is unavailable on Wednesday.

This would be our second home stadium this season after Wembley. Stadium MK will hold special memories for Dele Alli as we signed the youngster from MK Dons a few years ago.

The Englishman has become a crucial player for us and the midfielder spoke about returning to his old stomping ground.

The 22-year-old claimed that he tried to push the stadium to be selected for the clash against Watford.

Alli added that he was excited as the rest of the Tottenham players would visit Stadium MK. The 22-year-old had even hyped up the venue to his teammates.

It isn’t easy to make it to the top level and Alli added that his initial aim was to break into the first-team at MK Dons and then take it from there.

We moved swiftly to sign the youngster back then and it has paid off really well. The attacking midfielder hasn’t been brilliant for us in the ongoing campaign but the Carabao Cup clash in his old home could be the spark he needs.

Ryan Mason

Former Tottenham star Ryan Mason’s football career came to a premature end after he picked up a skull fracture while playing for Hull City.

The former Spurs was facing Chelsea and hung his boots in 2018 but is adored by many fans.

Now 27, the midfielder shared a video of him scoring a goal for us four years ago and what a strike it was from the Englishman.

This was Mason’s first goal for Spurs and it came in a League Cup fixture against Nottingham Forest.

The midfielder might not have been the most gifted player ever but he always gave 100% on the pitch and his move to Hull City, unfortunately, did not work out.

Mason played for numerous clubs in the English system, serving stints at Millwall, Yeovil Town and Doncaster Rovers.

The former Spurs star also had one cap for the England national side in 2015 and a number of fans tweeted their love for the player after his post.
