Tottenham Hotspur will not call Kilmarnock midfielder David Watson for a trial at the club

According to Herald & Times Sports, rumours linking Kilmarnock midfielder David Watson with a trial at Tottenham Hotspur are not true.

It was claimed earlier that Spurs could be looking at the exciting young midfielder in the near future to ready a squad able to compete in the coming years. However, rumours linking the player with the club are incorrect and the midfielder will not be travelling to London for a trial.

At the same time, Kilmarnock manager Derek McInnes wants to keep hold of the young prodigy and believes he wants to create an environment at the club where the players do not look for a move away.

“We want to try to create an environment where they don’t want to be looking for anything else. We want to be giving ourselves the best chance of developing as many youngsters as possible. 

It’s important to try to hang on to your best players, but it’s becoming increasingly difficult.   David’s one that we’d always identified as one that we would eventually be a Kilmarnock regular in the first team…

…To play in the Premiership at 18 week in, week out is a big demand. The strength of his recently has really allowed him the best chance to cope and he’s done very well for us.”

The praise from the manager shows the level that the player has shown since making the shift to the first team and it would not be wrong to say that Spurs could potentially come back for the player, once he has the desired experience needed to move to the Premier League.

For the time being, the club has more pressing issues to deal with as the last few weeks have been nothing short of total chaos. Antonio Conte left the club by mutual consent whilst the team is fighting for a top-four finish with interim manager Christian Stellini taking charge of the team.

At the same time, sporting director Fabio Paratici has been banned from any form of Football involvement for the next two and a half years due to his previous connection surrounding the scandal at Juventus.

It has put Daniel Levy in a spot of bother as his plan of hiring a top sporting director and a manager with winning acumen has gone down the drain. It is back to square one and the search to find able replacements for the departed has to be the utmost priority for the club currently.

In addition, there is uncertainty surrounding Harry Kane’s future and there are chances that the club’s highest goalscorer could leave the club in the coming windows.

Hence, the appointment of a good management staff would be a key factor in Kane’s decision concerning the contract extension and it has to be an absolutely right call by Levy which could have a potentially big impact on the team’s future.
