Spurs transfer news: Tottenham beat Chelsea to signing of 14-year-old versatile Nigerian

Tottenham have fended off competition from Chelsea to land Temidire Emmanuel Okuwa, according to All Nigeria Soccer (h/t Sun).

The youngster is set to represent the U14 team this season, and the report adds that Okuwa was on the books of West Ham for the past nine years.

The Nigerian left the Hammers this summer and trained with Spurs and the Blues before deciding to join us (h/t Sun).

The 14-year-old can play in several defensive positions and can also be deployed as a midfielder.

Mauricio Pochettino is known to work wonders with young talent and it will be interesting to see how the Nigerian progresses in the coming years.
