Alasdair Gold reveals Spurs forward suffered a minor injury on international duty 

Alasdair Gold has revealed that Tottenham starlet Jamie Donley suffered an injury while training with England’s Under-19s last week.

There is plenty of excitement at Spurs about Donley, with the attacker netting five goals and registering four assists in just six matches for the Under-19s last season while also scoring three times and providing two assists for the Under-21s (Transfermarkt).

The 18-year-old, who can operate as a centre-forward or in the hole as a number ten, has also started the new campaign on fire, with seven-goal contributions in four matches in Premier League two so far.

The teenager was one of four Spurs players to be called up to the England Under-19 squad, alongside Luca Gunter, Alfie Dorrington and summer signing, Ashley Phillips.

However, Gold explained that Donley could not get any minutes under his belt due to an injury. The journalist admitted that he is excited about what the forward can achieve this season.

Gold said on his YouTube channel: “Poor old Jamie Donley went along (with the England Under-19s). I think he got a little bit of an injury early on in the camp. So, he didn’t end up playing any part in the two games.

“But, I’m excited to see what Jamie Donley’s going to do this season. I think this is going to be the one where we see him develop very quickly and suddenly.

“He’s sort of been threatening to do that and really maturing, really developing his all-round game. They’ve been playing him in a lot of positions, so keep an eye on Jamie Donley this season. Honestly, I’ve got really high hopes for him.”

Donley is certainly developing very quickly and I fully expect Spurs to consider loaning the striker out to the EFL next season if he continues on the same trajectory.
