Tottenham Hotspur sign talented full-back Charlie Sayers from Southend United

According to Football.London, Tottenham Hotspur have completed the signing of Charlie Sayers to bolster their U18 squad. 

The youngster burst onto the scene this season with a slow of consistent performances for the fifth tier side. The 17-year-old player has shown immaculate maturity for someone of his age.

The Britisher has made six appearances for the National League side this season. His fantastic skill set and development had not gone unnoticed and Spurs were keen on securing them for themselves.

After a trial period with N17, the youngster convinced the coaching staff with his performances. It is believed that Spurs have signed Sayers for an undisclosed amount, and the talented youngster has joined the North London team’s scholarship programme.  

The English player has already featured in two games for Stuart Lewis’ team and has shown himself to be a promising performer. His leadership qualities also earned him the captain’s armband in just his second game with the Spurs U18. 

Sayers is a talented individual, and his outstanding growth could help him rapidly climb the youth division ladders. His recent form suggests it won’t take him long to break into the senior team.

Spurs senior team manager Antonio Conte has implemented his favourite 3-4-3 formation at the Lane. Recently, Sergio Reguilón and Ben Davies have been featuring regularly under the Italian manager. However, an injury to Reguilón forced him to early departure from the Norwich game. On the other hand, Emerson Royal also suffered an injury and has been sidelined. 

This could increase the pressure on the former Inter Milan manager in the coming weeks. To tackle the hectic schedule of the festive time, he would need more fresh legs in the team. Currently, the unit lacks the required depth.

However, the manager won’t have to look far for alternatives. If appropriately groomed, Sayers could become a viable alternative in the future. He could very well end up saving Tottenham a large chunk of money in the transfer market.
