Tottenham youngster Shilow Tracey joins Cambridge United on loan
As confirmed by the club’s official website, Tottenham Hotspur winger Shilow Tracey has completed a loan move to EFL League Two outfit Cambridge United for the rest of the season.
Having started out at Ebbsfleet United, Tracey made the move to the Tottenham youth setup in January 2016, linking up with our U-18 setup. He was pushed up to the U-23 side in the summer the same year, for whom he made 70 appearances, scoring and assisting eight goals apiece.
Tracey spent the second half of the last season at Macclesfield Town and featured seven times in all competitions, finding the back of the net on one occasion. (h/t Transfermarkt)
This past summer saw Tracey sign for Shrewsbury Town on loan where the winger made quite a decent impression. In 12 appearances for the Shrews, the 22-year-old found the back of the net on four occasions. (h/t Transfermarkt)
With the deal having expired this month, Tracey returned to Tottenham but has immediately been sent out for another temporary spell, this time with League Two side Cambridge United. The U’s boss, Mark Bonner, welcomed the new signing, saying (h/t BBC):
“He is comfortable in wide areas and as a striker. Shilow played in this league last year on loan and for Shrewsbury in League One this season. He’s fit and ready to go once his registration is complete.”
