Tashan Oakley-Boothe

Tottenham have tied down the likes of Samuel Shashoua and Tashan Oakley-Boothe to new contracts until 2020 and 2021 respectively, the club has officially confirmed.

Tashan has already featured for Tottenham’s first-team, having received the nod in all three matches of the club’s 2017 pre-season tour of the USA before getting a slot in a 1-0 Carabao Cup win over Barnsley in September 2017, replacing Dele Alli in the added time.

Samuel Shashoua, on the other hand, is yet to feature for the first-team but his performances with the club’s Under-23s have earned some brilliant reviews.

The Lambeth born Tashan has represented England from their U16 ranks to U18, while as things stand for Samuel, he has been capped by England U18s. Besides being a Tottenham academy product, Shashoua was an Under-12s county champion at squash and represented the South of England Under-16s at hockey.

Back during the January transfer window, Samuel Shashoua was linked with a loan move to an MLS club but the club’s hierarchy eventually decided he would stay put and continue his development within their ranks.

So while Tashan has already got some first-team minutes under his belt, Samuel came close as well. Thanks to his amazing showing through the ranks, he was awarded a place in the first-team bench for the first time, in the 6-1 win at Leicester City back in May 2017. However, it wasn’t his big day it seemed.

 

It is encouraging to see the club tie young players down to new contracts. We have had a lot of youngsters make the step to the first-team and there’s nothing healthier for the club than the youngsters making the cut to feature for the senior team.

Let’s wish Samuel Shashoua and Tashan Oakley-Boothe all the very best for their future at Tottenham.

Tottenham new stadium

Tottenham’s new stadium is towards completion and a new time-lapse video from last week has been shared which highlights the final stages of work being done.

The video begins with a view of the exterior where cranes are working on one section of the structure. The next part features an aerial view of the entire stadium. The video shows construction being done throughout the night to get the venue ready as quickly as possible.

A clip from the video showcases a section where numerous glass panes are yet to be installed, however, a number of cranes and workers are on the job.

The pitch was installed a week ago and an interior shot displays the grass and the artificial pitch lighting. It is great to see that most of the seats are installed and the LED hoardings across the seating area of the stadium.

Tottenham have no plans of signing Wilmar Barrios from Boca Junior, sources have told ESPN. The Colombian international had a decent World Cup with the national side and was linked with a move to Spurs, according to the report.

Reports (h/t ESPN) suggested that we had agreed on personal terms with the 25-year-old’s representatives and were preparing a bid for the midfielder.

However, sources have told ESPN that there were no discussions in the summer and he isn’t a target for Mauricio Pochettino in the winter window.

Spurs were the only club to not sign a player in the summer but the manager was open to signings in January.

The manager was quoted by ESPN as saying:

“In football you always need to think you can improve, and you need to try to improve your squad.

“We couldn’t sign [in the summer] for different circumstances, but we wanted to sign.

“Now January will come and we’re going to try to sign. I think it’s not only us — all the clubs and managers want to sign players, must refresh the squad.

“We need to try again in January or the summer if we want to move on the team and the club.”

Spurs are in a great position in the Premier League as we are just a couple of points behind the league leaders.
