Tottenham Hotspur advisor David Pleat spotted at Millwall vs Hull City Championship clash
According to Hull Live, Tottenham Hotspur advisor David Pleat was spotted watching the Championship clash between Millwall and Hull City on Monday. The home side won the match 2-1 on the day, and Pleat, who advises the club regarding talents in EFL would undoubtedly have made some notes.
The Tottenham advisor would probably have been monitoring Keane Lewis-Potter, considering how the latter has been linked with a move to N17. The youngster played the entire ninety minutes during the loss but failed to get in on the goal involvements on the day. Pleat was also joined by West Ham United boss David Moyes and Brentford coach Thomas Frank.
West Ham have also been interested in signing Lewis-Potter with Moyes especially keen to finalise a potential move. The latter was also present to watch Manchester United defender Di’Shon Bernard who is currently on loan with Hull. It will be interesting to see whether there will be any further updates on this matter in the days to come.
Was Spurs scouting Lewis-Potter?
We cannot rule out the possibility that Pleat was there to assess Lewis-Potter, especially when the North Londoners have shown an interest in the winger. The Championship ace has been in fine form this season, although his last match was not among his best for sure. While he may not have been able to impress, it would not make sense to end our interest after this one display.
After all, the Englishman is on the radar of the Hammers, with Moyes admiring his talents as well. Surely, that is a nod to the heights the youngster could reach after performing with flying colours throughout the current campaign.
Perhaps the Bees could also be looking to rekindle their interest in the 21-year-old with Frank watching over the game as well. They did table a £12million transfer bid in January, so one could say that they may be assessing their options over a potential move once again in the future.
With competition from our London rivals and potential interest from the Bees moving forward, we should be on our toes at all times so as not to get beaten in this transfer race. Then again, our pursuit would probably depend on what Pleat’s report would be regarding Lewis-Potter.

The Tigers starlet is one for the future since he still has some ways to go before reaching his best self. However, he has shown all the signs of being ready to jump up to the Premier League, looking at his performances in the England second division.
We could use Lewis-Potter in our ranks if there is a need for a new left-winger this summer. Bryan Gil is still an option, but he may need time to get used to English football. Steven Bergwijn has struggled to get minutes, and he is open to leaving after this term. Hence, signing the Hull star would be a solid choice but let’s wait and see whether we would actively target at all or not.
