Youth prospects Josh Onomah, Cameron Carter-Vickers and Kyle Walker-Peters have been identified by Mauricio Pochettino as players we should expect to see getting much more game time for Tottenham next season.
The 3 players have just left the Tottenham squad to join up with the England and United States under 20s national teams to take part in the Under 20s Football World Cup in South Korea, so will play no part in Spurs’ remaining 3 games. However, in an interview with Football.London Tottenham gaffer Pochettino revealed that the 3 would play a much larger role in the 2017/18 season when Spurs make the temporary move to Wembley Stadium while White Hart Lane is being demolished. He said:
“They are players that we are thinking about for the future”
“We expect that they will be involved next season more than they were this season”
So far, only 20 year old Onomah and 19 year old Carter-Vickers have made their debuts for Tottenham in early round FA Cup matches. Walker-Peters, at age 20, is still yet to make his first competitive appearance for the club despite being named on the bench in the game against Aston Villa in January.
With the promise of more first team football, as well as the upcoming Under 20s World Cup, it is likely that the Spurs faithful will be able to see much more from these exciting prospects in the coming year.
