Tottenham Hotspur have reportedly added to their incredible academy system this week by signing the promising young teenager, Temidire Emmanuel Okuwa (Sun).

Okuwa was previously at West Ham United, where he joined at just 9-years-old, but left at the end of the 2018/19 season (AllNigerianSoccer).

He then went on trials at both Tottenham and Chelsea, but decided to opt for the North Londoners due to the clear and proven path through the system and into the first team.

Okuwa will now slot into the U14 side for the new season, so it may be a while before Spurs fans are chanting his name.

He is said to be a very versatile player, as he can ply his trade at centre-back, full-back, defensive midfield, and central midfield. In this respect, he sounds very similar to Eric Dier.

With the likes of Harry Kane, Harry Winks, Andros Townsend, Jake Livermore, Tommy Carrol, Ryan Mason, Nabil Bentaleb, and more breaking their way from the academy to the first team in recent years, Okuwa will have every chance to impress.
