Ange Postecolgou has admitted that he has been impressed by Tottenham academy starlets Alfie Devine and Dane Scarlett during his time at the club.
The Athletic reported a couple of days ago that Spurs plan on loaning out the 18-year-old this summer so that he can get competitive game time under his belt this season.
Postecoglou impressed by Devine and Scarlett
Scarlett has not featured in either of the two friendlies so far due to an injury (Charlie Eccleshare), but the teenage striker has seemingly caught Postecoglou’s eye, with the Australian naming him and Devine as youngsters who have done well so far.
When asked about young players from the academy potentially coming into the first team, the Tottenham head coach told Football.London: “It’s an important part of this football club and the infrastructure and it’s something that we’re constantly monitoring to make sure the club is in the best place possible to find and develop the best talent.
“We’ve got Alfie Devine with us and Dane Scarlett, who are two young guys who have done really well so far and have been with the first team.”

Scarlet and Devine need to be playing regular football this season, which is why loaning them out to an EFL club is a no-brainer for Spurs.
It is unlikely that either of them is going to make more than a handful of senior appearances if they stayed at the club.
