Transfer News: Tottenham Hotspur set to rival Leeds United for Sonny Perkins

According to Yorkshire Evening Post, Tottenham Hotspur will battle it out against Leeds United for the signature of 18-year-old Sonny Perkins. Last month, The Guardian claimed that Aston Villa, Leeds and Tottenham were in the race for him should he reject the club’s contract offer.

The England Under-18 star was released by West Ham United this month, after he rejected the club’s offer for a new contract. And now it seems Tottenham and Leeds are set to battle it out for the youngster’s signature.

An up-and-coming star, Perkins made three appearances for the West Ham senior team last season. He made his senior debut coming off the bench during the Hammers’ 2-0 victory against Rapid Vienna in the Europa League last November.

In the Premier League 2, he scored 10 goals in 20 appearances, highlighting his potential. A centre-forward by trade, he can also play on the left wing when required.

One for the future

Tottenham would be pleased to see him available as a free agent if their interest in him is real. It’s not often that you get such talented and young players in the market looking for a new club. And to rub salt on the wound, he is from a rival’s academy.

However, it will not be easy to secure his signature. Leeds are known to hand opportunities to young players and help them elevate their game to the next level. At Spurs, he can struggle for senior playing time, at least for now.

Spurs have his compatriot Troy Parrott in their Under-23 side and could link Perkins up with him there. It could be an interesting battle between the two Irish forwards, both of them being considered a star for the future.

Should Perkins sign for Spurs, he will most likely play in the Under-23 squad but then again, given his talent, it wouldn’t be a surprise if he seeks senior football. 18 is an age where the talented youngsters start getting a few minutes here and there for their club’s senior sides.

What happens with the youngster remains to be seen. It is very unlikely that he will not be able to find a club for himself, given his potential. No matter where he plays, he could be one to watch out for in the future.
