Lavinier confirmed the signing of the contract taking to his Instagram account. The youngster posted an image of him penning the deal, along with a caption which read:

The youngster has shown decent potential in his youth career at Chelsea. He has already started two games for Spurs’ reserves in the Premier League 2. If he is able to build upon it at Tottenham, maybe he can follow in Japhet Tanganga’s footsteps and break into the senior team.
