Fabrizio Romano has revealed that former Tottenham academy centre-back Tobi Omole has signed a contract with Crawley Town.
Omole, who was with the Arsenal academy before moving to Tottenham, made 37 appearances for the Lilywhites at the Under-21 level (Transfermakrt).
The versatile defender, who can also operate at left-back and in defensive midfield, failed to make the next step up to the senior Spurs team.
Tottenham confirmed last month that Omole would be one of several development squad players departing the club this summer, along with the likes of J’Neil Bennett, Kacper Kurylowicz, Dermi Lusala, Thimothee Lo-Tutala, Josh Oluwayemi, and Isak Solberg.
Romano has now revealed that the 22-year-old has officially found his next club, putting pen to paper on a contract with Crawley.
The journalist explained that Omole turned down ‘numerous offers’ this summer as he believes the project at the League 2 side would be ideal for his development.
The former Spurs man will be hoping to hit the ground running at Crawley and force himself into the club’s starting eleven.

It seems like Spurs decided to let Omole go rather than it being the case of the youngster rejecting a contract offer from the North London club. At 22 years of age, the centre-back needs to be playing senior football, and hopefully, that happens at Crawley during the upcoming season
