Tottenham under Pochettino have made it a habit to look for quality talent within the English footballing pyramid and the club is now being linked with a move for one of the rising stars from League One, Callum Wright, according to the Liverpool Echo.

The 17-year-old might not have made a senior appearance for Blackburn Rovers this season but has impressed in the U18 level scoring one goal and assisting another in the U18 Premier League. His performances in the Premier League 2 competition are better, with him having scored 3 goals and an assist from 9 games. His versatility could be one reason why Pochettino and his team are looking to sign the Englishman up.

Wright can play in the heart of midfield but can also shift to either wing or play as a right-back as well. This gives us a lot of flexibility in deploying Wright and would also allow us the space to test him in a few positions before finalising the role that suits him the most.

We have seen Pochettino play around with Eric Dier’s position, often playing him as a centre-back or even as a central midfielder and that would be the route for Wright should he move to our team.

A Star For The Future

Before we start believing the player could be the next Dele Alli, Wright has to work harder on his game, should he decide to join us. He would be spending a couple of years, at least, in the developmental squads before thinking about battling for a place in the matchday team.

The good thing about him joining us is the fact that chances are aplenty for young talent, something that has helped Harry Winks even receive an England call-up. The report also claims that a couple of other teams are looking to sign Wright with Everton, Stoke City and Leicester keeping track of the youngster.

Blackburn might have to make a big decision on the future of the player as they are not in the best of finances and maybe we can come in and unearth another gem, just like we did with Alli.

There still is a long way to go before we can start dreaming of Wright dominating the midfield in the Premier League but signing him up is one step in the right direction for his development under one of the best youth coaching teams in England.

Ryan Mason Tottenham

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.

“Most entertaining”, “The ending…” – Some Spurs fans love latest advert featuring accommodation partner

Vorm Eriksen Tottenham

Tottenham posted a video of their tie-up with Hotels.com, our official accommodation partner, and it was an interesting video, to say the least.

Spurs players Christian Eriksen, Michel Vorm, Ben Davies and Juan Foyth participated in some “hotel-related” drills in the two-minute long ad.

It was fun to see Eriksen and co carrying luggage around an obstacle course while the Dane also dropped drinks glasses from his tray.

There were a few laughs too as Vorm wasn’t able to fold the quilt in the right manner and some of the fans saw the funny side of the video.

Tottenham haven’t started the season well and were lucky to get all three points against Brighton in our previous game. However, it was nice to see the players having a great time in the fun advert.

The video certainly was done pretty well and the ending is something to behold too.

Jack Grealish

Jack Grealish

Jack Grealish has signed a new five-year deal with Aston Villa that includes a huge release clause, according to the Sun.

The report adds that Tottenham offered £25million for the midfielder in the summer. But to sign him now, we would have to double the amount.

Grealish was one of the stars for the Villans last season but they missed out on promotion to the Premier League.

Villa aren’t doing well in the Championship as they lie 13th with 13 points from nine games. Grealish is yet to score for his boyhood club in the ongoing term.

With his selling price doubled, as per the report, some Tottenham fans weren’t sure about the club making a move for the player while a few blamed Daniel Levy for botching the transfer.
