Two of Tottenham Hotspur’s most talented youngsters within the club’s academy set-up are likely to remain in North London this season.
The Athletic have claimed that Dane Scarlett and Alfie Devine will not head out on loan to get first team experience at another club, but will instead likely be part of first-team training while also getting minutes under their belt in the Europa Conference League.
Scarlett became Tottenham’s youngest-ever Premier League player when he appeared as a substitute in the 2-0 win against West Brom at the age of 16 years and 320 days in February (talkSPORT).
Devine, who joined Spurs from Wigan Athletic for £300,000 last summer also recorded his name in the record books when he became the club’s youngest-ever player to feature in a competitive fixture and score, having found the back of the net in the FA Cup win against non-league Marine in January (Daily Mail).
With our likely opponents in the early stages of the Europa Conference League likely to be some of the smaller European clubs, it presents a great opportunity to the likes of Scarlett and Devine to continue their first-team footballing education under the management of Nuno.
