Tottenham Hotspur confirmed on Tuesday evening that academy goalkeeper Adam Hayton had completed a permanent switch to Barnsley.
Transfer deadline day proved quite busy for Spurs, with the club eventually getting the Pedro Porro deal over the deadline.
Two right wing-backs had to make way for the Spaniard, with Djed Spence joining Rennes on loan yesterday while Matt Doherty’s contract was terminated, thus allowing the 31-year-old to sign for Atletico Madrid.
There was also movement in the academy ranks, with Harvey White being loaned out to Derby County while 19-year-old striker Jude Soonsup-Bell joined the Lilywhites’ academy from Chelsea.
Spurs also confirmed yesterday evening that another academy graduate in Hayton had departed the club permanently, with the goalkeeper signing for League One club Barnsley.
We have reached agreement with Barnsley for the transfer of Adam Hayton.
All the best for the future, Adam 🤝

The 18-year-old goalkeeper came through the club’s academy ranks and played frequently for the club’s Under-18s last season.
The teenager had also made two appearances in the UEFA Youth League and one in the Papa John’s Trophy for the club’s Under-21s this season (Transfermarkt).
Spurs Web Opinion
This is a great opportunity for Hayton to get a taste of competitive football early in his career and potentially even stake a claim for a regular place on the Barnsley side. Everyone at The Spurs Web would like to wish the youngster the best for the future.
