According to the Daily Mail, Swansea City are interested in signing Spurs academy starlet, Tashan Oakley-Boothe this summer.

The report does not indicate whether this would be a loan or permanent deal, but you would assume that Spurs would only be willing to part with him temporarily.

At 19-years-old, Oakley-Boothe has only recorded one appearance for Tottenham, coming on as a sub against Barnsley back in 2017.

Oakley-Boothe was shortlisted along with 99 other youngsters for the Golden Boy award back in June, handed to the best under 21 player in Europe (TBRFootball).

Perhaps one reason Swansea are so keen on the youngster is that the boss used to be the manager of the England U17 side.

Steve Cooper led the under 17s to World Cup glory two years ago, with Oakley-Boothe being a pivotal player in that success, starting every game bar one in the Euros and World Cup that year.

He certainly looks as if he could have a bright future and some extra game time could only benefit him in the long-run.
