Academy News: Tottenham Hotspur eyeing two-year contract for wonderkid Leo Black

According to Football Insider (h/t football.london), Tottenham Hotspur are looking to offer a two-year deal to academy starlet Leo Black, after the midfielder’s impressive performances for the youth teams.

Tottenham have had a good history of developing young, talented players from within the club who have gone on to become first-team stars and established senior players. One need not look farther than Harry Kane, Japhet Tanganga, and Harry Winks for fine examples of that fact.

Now, Black seems to be the latest in a long line of academy talents to be offered a scholarship contract by the north London side after the youngster has continued to perform well at the youth level.

The 16-year-old clearly seems to be earmarked to have a bright future at Tottenham if the club are looking to tie him down to a two-year deal. It remains to be seen however, if the starlet will accept the new deal – although there is nothing concrete to suggest that he may not.

Series of impressive displays

It is said that the Lilywhites want a deal for Black wrapped up within the next couple of weeks, after the player put in a “series of impressive displays” to convince the club to reward his abilities with a new contract.

With the current campaign winding down, Black is one of a number of youth stars who have been offered fresh scholarship terms by Spurs. The club seem to be keen on holding on to their best academy players in a bid to build a good foundation for the future.

With an inflated transfer market and sky-rocketing prices for footballers in the modern game, the rise of academy players and their determination to break into the first team has come as a blessing for top clubs like Tottenham.

The fact that someone like Kane was brought into the team for free, and could potentially be sold for an eye-popping amount of £160m is staggering. It goes on to show that sides can reap the benefits of developing home-grown talents, and the value they bring to a club.

Furthermore, the pride fans have in seeing an academy graduate perform well in the first team is something that cannot be replicated. It is the same reason why supporters are always full of praise for stars like Oliver Skipp, who is adored by the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium faithful.

With other academy stars like Dane Scarlett and Troy Parrott knocking on the doors of the senior team, we can expect to see Black get to the same stage as well in a few years’ time and perhaps go one further than them and actually establish himself in the first team.
