Tottenham academy defender Kallum Cesay has been called up to Sierra Leone’s senior squad on the back of his impressive displays for the Spurs Under-23s this season.

Cesay, who started his career as a midfielder at the youth level, has evolved into a full-back over recent seasons, featuring at both right-back and left-back.

The youngster is having a breakout season at Spurs, having made 21 appearances for the Under-23s, 18 of which have come in Premier League 2 (Transfermarkt).

Although the defender is yet to make a senior appearance for the Lilywhites, he has made the bench for three of Tottenham’s UEFA Europa Conference League matches this season (TransferMarkt).

Sierra Leone announced their squad on social media for their upcoming friendlies against Toga and Liberia, and the Tottenham academy starlet made the final cut.

Former Tottenham centre-back Steven Caulker, who previously played for England before changing his allegiances, also made the squad.

This is big news for Cesay and given that Sierra Leone only have friendlies coming up, he could well get his first cap. The experience will certainly hold the youngster in good stead for the seasons that lie ahead. One would expect Spurs to consider loaning out the 19-year-old to a League One or League Two club next season.
