Tottenham Hotspur have some amazing youngsters in their academy at the moment, with a number knocking on the door of first team opportunities.

Harry Winks has been the latest academy graduate to become a first team regular, with the likes of Kyle Walker-Peters and Oliver Skipp being used sporadically through the season too.  Luke Amos also made his debut this season before seeing his season cut short cruelly due to injury.

However, there is one 17-year-old who is beginning to stand out in his age group, and that is Republic of Ireland forward Troy Parrott.

Parrott has both trained regularly with the first team this season, and travelled as the 19th man to multiple fixtures.

Pochettino seems to be training him up for a first team chance before long, with his national manager Martin O’Neill also picking him out as a future senior player.

Parrott has now been called up to the Republic of Ireland U21 side to face Luxembourg in a European qualifier this month.
