Tottenham Hotspur academy product Connor Ogilve has taken to Instagram to thank the club after completing a permanent move to Gillingham on a two-year deal.

The 23-year-old had spent the last two seasons on loan at the League One side where he has made 79 appearances and scoring on one occasion.

The central defender had been at Tottenham since he was eight years old and paid tribute to those who had helped him through his pathway to becoming a professional footballer.

He never made a senior appearance for Spurs, his nearest experience was when was included in the squad for the first team in the UEFA Europa League match as unused substitute bench in a 2–2 draw against Benfica on 20 March 2014.

With the likes of Juan Foyth, Davinson Sanchez and Cameron Carter-Vickers all ahead of him in the pecking order, Ogilvie has decided that his long-term future lies away from North London.


At 23, Ogilvie is hardly a youngster and has done the right thing in deciding to leave the club.    We wish him all the best with his career.
