Transfer News: Tottenham Hotspur eye Kevin Joshua of West Bromwich Albion
According to All Nigeria Soccer (h/t BirminghamLive), Tottenham Hotspur will engage in multiple battles to get the services of West Bromwich Albion defender Kevin Joshua amidst interest in the player from the Premier League and the Championship.
The 19-year-old joined West Brom after he had impressed the U-23 team on a trial. The news about his potential travelled quickly and, he has earned himself multiple interests from the first and the second division.
He has already made six appearances in the youth division and has been impressive with his displays. He recently scored against Arsenal U-23s as the Baggies won 4-1 in the Premier League Cup.
Tottenham will face competition from fellow top-flight clubs, namely the likes of Aston Villa and Southampton, whereas Championship side Stoke City are also interested in the Irishman.
Back in April, clubs like Everton, Leicester City and Crystal Palace were said to keep tabs on the young centre-back. He has quickly earned himself a name throughout the first and second division and could be one for the future.
However, it is still early days and, things can go wrong during the developmental process. But, it is good to know that the club is keeping an eye on his potential and on what he can become in the future.

It will be interesting to see how this situation progresses as the days go by as the Irish centre-back develops at the youth team. Having made such progress in a short period, he could attract more interest from clubs across Europe.
Spurs themselves are in no desperate need of centre-backs but it is never wrong for a club to want to plan for the future.
