Tottenham And Chelsea To Battle It Our For 19-year Old League One Right-back

Published

Callum Brittain

Tottenham fans are perfectly instigated with MK Dons and the last time the Lilywhites negotiated with the Dons, Dele Alli was introduced to the footballing world. Tottenham are all set to repeat the feat yet again as Daily Mail has reported that Tottenham, alongside their London rivals Chelsea are monitoring the situation of MK Dons’ 19-year-old defender Callum Brittain.

But these two Premier League giants aren’t the only interested clubs, as Southampton and a number of Champions League clubs have entered the fray as well. Brittain, who got his first-team breakthrough last season, has already impressed one and all with his brilliant showing for the England U-20 team. The young Lions were up against Italy U-20 earlier this month and Brittain, a right-back, set up two goals in England’s 5-1 win. He also made a substitute appearance in a 4-0 win over Czech Republic.

The young right-back started his footballing career with the MK Dons and signed his first professional contract ahead of the 2016-17 season. He had to wait until January earlier this year for making a first-team debut and eventually in June 2017, he signed a new contract extension that runs until the summer of 2018.

Brittain, who started his career as a winger, has now entered the final year of his contract and that has seen him gather interest from a host of English clubs. Brittain is certainly the latest prodigy in English football and has already been tipped as one for the future, hence, he needs to take his next step very cautiously. An offer from the likes of Tottenham and Chelsea is certainly too hard to resist, but at the same time, the defender needs to analyse all the permutations and combinations.

For that sake, let’s just begin with Chelsea. The Blues have nearly 35 players out on loan and let’s be practical here, how many of us can see Brittain being slotted into the first-team right away? Tottenham, on the other hand, recently sold Kyle Walker to Manchester City, yet we have sustainable depth in the form of Kieran Trippier, Serge Aurier and Walker-Peters, hence it is hard to determine why Pochettino wants Brittain.

The 19-year-old’s attacking display can certainly be a match-winner, but it is practically hard to see him in the first-team picture for at least a couple of seasons from now.
