Tottenham transfer news: Norwich leading chase for Tottenham youngster Maxwell Statham
The youngster was called up to train with the first-team this week, according to the report. The move could have been done as his contract ends after this season, and Spurs could still hand him a professional deal (h/t Mirror).
The 18-year-old is the son of former Tottenham player Brian Statham, who spent a couple of years at the club.
The report adds that Brentford, Sunderland and Nottingham Forest are also keeping tabs on the young centre-back.

Davinson Sanchez has done well since his move from Ajax while Juan Foyth has done a decent job this season, though his game is still a little rough around the edges.
Tottenham could do with more centre-backs to increase the competition in the side as we have often played with three at the back.
