Tottenham have submitted a two-year scholarship offer to young defender Pele Arganese-McDermott, according to Football Insider.
Arganese-McDermott, a tall-standing centre-back, joined Tottenham from Luton Town last season and has been impressing with the club’s Under-15 side.
Football Insider claim his impressive performances have put him in contention for a scholarship contract and Spurs are working to secure a deal for the young defender ahead of next year’s intake into the academy.
The report adds that Arganese-McDermott has been added to a host of young players at Spurs including forward Samuel Amo-Ameyaw and defender Archie Chaplin, who have also allegedly been offered early scholarship deals by the club.
Spurs initially managed to secure Arganese-McDermott by fending off intense interest from the likes of Liverpool and Chelsea, and the club is now looking to avoid the youngster being prised away.

Spurs appear to have a good handful of young players that are in line for scholarship deals and hopefully, the club can get these deals secured so they can slot into the academy next year. The academy can be a goldmine for future stars, and we may see Arganese-McDermott in the senior side in the years ahead.
