Former Tottenham manager David Pleat, who is now an advisor to the North London club, was in attendance at the Den on Monday to watch Millwall take on Hull City, The Hull Daily Mail have revealed.

The report claims that Pleat and West Ham boss David Moyes were both watching on from the Stands as Milwall turned over Hull 2-1.

Pleat could have been running the rule over Hull starlet Keane Lewis-Potter, who completed all ninety minutes in the clash.

Lewis-Potter has amassed nine goals and four assists for a struggling Hull side this season (Transfermarkt) and his performances have earned him a call up to the England Under-21 squad.

Hull Live reported in January that the 21-year-old’s displays had caught the eye of several Premier League clubs, including Spurs, and added that the Lilywhites were planning an offer for the youngster before the deadline.

The Daily Mail reported last month that the winger continues to be on Tottenham’s radar ahead of the summer transfer window, with West Ham also credited with an interest in the youngster.

Given that both Spurs and West Ham are rumoured to be interested in Lewis-Potter, it looks pretty likely that Moyes and Pleat were at the Den to watch the 21-year-old on Monday. 

The Hammers could have an upper hand in the race for Lewis-Potter as the winger might feel he has a better chance of breaking into the first team at the London Stadium.
