Tottenham Hotspur have a number of young and promising starlets within their academy system, particularly in attacking areas.

Troy Parrott was given first-team chances by both Pochettino and Mourinho this season, while Kion Etete has impressed in the youth side.

However, one striker in the Tottenham academy who has endured a rather uneventful season is 21-year-old Kaziah Sterling.

Sterling made his competitive debut for the club back in December 2017 when he replaced Dele Alli in the 88th minute against APOEL Nicosia in the Champions League (Wikipedia).

Unfortunately, he only ever made two appearances for the first-team, while playing out rather disappointing loan spells at Sunderland, Doncaster Rovers, and Leyton Orient.

Sterling is still technically on loan at Orient, but an injury and the COVID-19 suspension mean that he is still waiting for his debut.

Football Insider report that Mourinho has no plans to reintroduce him to the first-team squad when he returns at the end of the season. The report adds that they will listen to offers for Sterling this summer and Spurs do not expect him to play for them again.
