Adam Hayton and Aaron Maguire sign first professional contracts with Tottenham Hotspur

Tottenham Hotspur duo Adam Hayton and Aaron Maguire have signed their first professional contracts with the club, as per football.london.

The goalkeepers have been part of the U18 side and will now be a part of the U21 team competing in Premier League 2. Hayton and Maguire, at the age of 18 and 17, respectively, have both appeared for the U18s in their time together.

Luton-born English native Hayton has appeared 16 times for the U18 side, while London-born Irish national Maguire has appeared 12 times for the youth side.

The club let go of five keepers from the development squad this summer, so fans will hope the two goalkeepers can fill the holes in the youth side. Game time will have to be shared between the two to provide them with the right exposure for their development.

Tottenham also signed Josh Keeley this summer and the new pair of goalkeepers will be looking to compete for a berth in Wayne Burnett’s side.

The future of Spurs’ goalkeeping might be in safe hands for a couple of more years with Hugo Lloris, but there will soon come a time when the North London club will have to look for a replacement for our captain and World Cup winner.

Pierluigi Gollini left the club after the end of last season as the North London side didn’t trigger the buy option. Instead, Fraser Forster was signed at the beginning of the summer window. The shot-stopper made 24 appearances for Southampton last season and showed glimpses of his old self.

It’s always good for fans to see youngsters doing well at the club. Tottenham’s academy has given us players like Ledley King, Harry Kane and goalkeeper Ian Walker. The two young goalkeepers have an opportunity of a lifetime.

Being in and around the Spurs team and training alongside a player like Lloris on occasions is undoubtedly going to help the young players improve their game. But it remains to be seen what the future holds for the two prospects.
