Tottenham Hotspur have always been famed for bringing academy talent through the youth ranks and into the first-team in North London, particularly in recent years.

Perhaps the last consistent crop of youngsters to break through together came during the Kane era, when Harry was joined by the likes of Andros Townsend, Jake Livermore, Tommy Carroll, Ryan Mason, and Nabil Bentaleb.

Since then, Harry Winks has been the major academy success story, with Japhet Tanganga also making waves in recent weeks. Young Troy Parrott looks to be one of the next to break out, while Kyle Walker-Peters was recently loaned out.

Alasdair Gold from Football London has now named his seven stars to look out for next in the Tottenham academy after Tanganga’s rise to prominence.

Dennis Cirkin – 17-year-old left-back who has appeared on the bench a couple of times of late.

Harvey White – 18-year-old central midfielder who featured a couple of times in the pre-season tour of Asia under Pochettino.

Kion Etete – 18-year-old strike who stands at 6ft 4 and transferred from Notts County last summer – Now filling to boots of Troy Parrott in the development side.

Jamie Bowden – 18-year-old central midfielder who was also given minutes in pre-season last year, but has been plagued with injury problems.

Malachi Walcott – 17-year-old who recently made the step up to the U23 side and has even trained with the first team on multiple occasions.

Dermi Lusala – 17-year-old who is still a first-year academy scholar but the young right-back has impressed this season in the U18 side.

J’Neil Bennett – 18-year-old versatile attacker who became the first player to ever score in the new Tottenham Hotspur Stadium last year.

Honourable mentions: Joshua Oluwayemi, Dilan Markanday, Max Robson, Chay Cooper, Tarrelle Whittaker, and Yago Santiago.
