Report: Youngster is spending time at Hotspur Way ahead of potential move

Kilmarnock youngster Ben Brannan is spending some time with the Tottenham Hotspur development squad with a view to making a permanent switch to North London.

Brannan is just 16 years of age but has already caught the eye of Tottenham having come through the ranks at Kilmarnock of late.

The talented right-back moved up to the Under 18s squad at the Scottish club at the start of the season, after signing from the Under 17s.

He made his debut for the Scotland Under 16 side at the end of 2022, and now has six international caps to his name at that level (Scotland FA).

Brannan featured against Denmark, England, and Cyprus back in February of this year as part of a UEFA development tournament.

As per Football.London, Brannan will now spend three weeks at Hotspur Way, working with the rest of Tottenham’s development squad.

The youngster will be hoping to do enough to secure a permanent contract with the Lilywhites.

This move comes on the back of Tottenham appearing to put extra focus on reinforcing their youth options with other notable signings to the development squad.

Spurs have already snapped up Chelsea youngster Jude Soonsup-Bell. The club also recently agreed a contract with Manchester City starlet Herbie James, with the 16-year-old set to sign for Spurs on a three-year-deal (Football.London).

It remains to be seen whether Brannan will be the next to join the growing development squad at Tottenham, with everything depending on how he performs over the next three weeks.

Spurs Web Opinion

It’s really encouraging to hear that Tottenham are looking at all these youth players and building a strong development squad.

I’m especially pleased to see a defender being brought in for a trial, as we’ve only seen attackers arriving of late, so this could be a really good acquisition.
