Brandon Austin has become the first player on Tottenham’s books to get back to competitive action following the COVID-19 football suspensions across Europe.
The young goalkeeper joined Danish side Viborg FF on loan during the January transfer window. However, the 21-year-old managed to make just two appearances for the side before the league was suspended due to the pandemic (transfermarkt.com).
The Danish NordicBet LIGA resumed this week and Austin started where he left off by putting in an impressive performance between the sticks on Friday to help Viborg snatch a 1-1 draw at home to Skive.
As relayed by the club’s official website, the Spurs academy graduate made a great save to stop the visitors doubling their lead deep into stoppage time.
The stop proved crucial as Viborg managed to score one at the other end just moments later through Alassana Jatta, thus salvaging a point from the game.

Brandon Austin and Alfie Whiteman both have a fantastic opportunity to potentially cement themselves as the third-choice goalkeeper next season, with Michel Vorm seemingly on his way out. Given that we do not have much money to spend, it is certainly possible that the club could look to one of the two young goalkeepers to cover Vorm’s role next season, instead of investing on a temporary stopgap.
