The youngster recently penned a new two and a half year contract at the Riverside Stadium, putting a dent into Spurs’ hopes of landing him.
Spence was born in London and came through the youth ranks at Fulham. His decision to renew was praised by former Spurs defender Jonathan Woodgate. He was released by the Potters in 2018, just before his 18th birthday.
Woodgate, the head coach at Middlesbrough admitted that the youngster could have “allegedly” decided to join Tottenham. But instead, he chose to renew with his current side. (h/t Hartlepool Mail)
With the player signing a new contract and the emergence of Japhet Tanganga, it remains to be seen if Spurs will continue to follow up on their interest.
