Tashan Oakley-Boothe and Samuel Shashoua sign Tottenham deals

Published

on

Tashan Oakley-Boothe and Samuel Shashoua have signed new terms with Tottenham Hotspur, the club has confirmed through their official Twitter account.

Spurs tweeted: “We are delighted to announce that Academy players @BootheTashan and @Sam_shash have signed new contracts with the Club until 2021 and 2020 respectively. #COYS”

Oakley-Boothe and Shashoua have signed new contracts with Spurs until 2021 and 2020 respectively.

Oakley-Boothe, who turned 18 last month, has been involved heavily with the first-team and is highly rated by manager Mauricio Pochettino. The academy kid has travelled with the Spurs first-team squad on various occasions as an emergency plan.

The teenager travelled with the Spurs first-team last summer on their pre-season tour to the USA and he was involved in the International Champions Cup matches.

Oakley-Boothe made his senior debut as a last-minute substitute in Spurs’ League Cup win against Barnsley in September. He was also an unused substitute in the opening match of the Premier League season against Newcastle United.

Samuel Shashoua

In the Champions League win over APOEL Nicosia and in the FA Cup third-round trip to Newport, the midfielder was named on the bench.

Oakley-Boothe was also a part of the England Under-17 World Cup winning squad earlier this season. After an injury, the 18-year-old is back in training with the first-team squad since last month and has played some development squad games.

Pochettino is a big fan of the teenager, who can play as a defensive midfielder or in a box-to-box role. He is very highly-rated at the club and the midfielder has already started knocking the doors of the first-team. If Oakley-Boothe continues his development and keeps on impressing Poch, he would soon find himself playing for the first-team.

As far as Samuel Shashoua is concerned, he is a skilful attacking midfielder with dazzling feet and enjoyed a cracking season last year for the U23s. He finished last season as the second-top scorer for our Under-18s but has since struggled to stake his claim in new U23 manager Wayne Burnett’s starting team.

However, Shashoua is still highly-rated within the club, scoring heavily for the Spurs’ youth teams on a consistent basis. He has also appeared for England’s U18s and needs to up his game if he wants to be watched closely by Pochettino.
