Report: Spurs agree early summer deal to sign teenage striker for the academy

John Wenham, who regularly breaks news regarding Tottenham’s youth set-up via his social media handle, Lilywhite Rose, has now revealed that teenage strike George Feeney has joined the Spurs academy.

Feeney, who was born in Newport, has represented both Wales and Northern Ireland at youth level.

The 16-year-old centre-forward plays for Glentoran, a club located in East Belfast, having broken into their senior side earlier this season. According to Wenham, he is the son of former Northern Ireland player Warren Feeney.

He revealed that the youngster has now agreed to join the Tottenham academy on a two-year scholarship and will soon arrive at Hotspur Way.

Tottenham sign 16-year-old George Feeney

If it is officially confirmed, this would signal a continuation of Tottenham’s efforts to try and attract the best young talent to their academy.

In an interview with Tottenham’s official channel earlier this year, the club’s technical director Johan Lange made it clear that Spurs want to become the go-to destination for the best-emerging talent in world football.

Since the arrival of Scott Munn and Johan Lange, there is evidently an increased focus on improving the academy set-up, with the club perhaps recognising that doing so gives them the best chance of competing with the best teams in Europe over the long term.
