Norwich City’s young right-back Max Aarons has penned a new five year deal with the Canaries (Norwich City).
Spurs showed interest in Aarons earlier in the summer transfer window as a replacement for Kieran Trippier, but no reports suggest that a move or bid was made.
Football London reported last month that Spurs would make a move for Aarons if Trippier was sold, but it looks as if that has come too late for the Lilywhites.
Pochettino is now left with Serge Aurier and Kyle Walker-Peters at right-back, with Juan Foyth a potential converted choice.
With Aarons making 41 appearances for the canaries, providing 6 assists and scoring 2 goals as Norwich City lifted the Championship title and promotion to the Premier League, it is easy to see why Spurs and other clubs were interested in the 19-year-old (Whoscored).
The 19-year-old is also a very talented defender, making him a good all-around package, and with a whole lot of room to grow.
Speaking to the clubs official website, Aarons spoke with pride and commitment to the club that showed great faith in him last season:
“For them to reward me with a new deal is brilliant.
“The progress has been massive and gone really quickly. To think I was sat signing my first professional deal this time last year and being here now, it’s brilliant.
“Like I’ve said many times, I had goals but I didn’t foresee them being anything like how it was last season.
“I was very nervous but I thought I was ready and I believed in myself, I backed myself in that game and I knew I needed to grab my chance with both hands. I like to think that I did that.
“Credit to the boss for giving me the opportunity to play every week. It has given me a lot to learn in a tough league, the Championship is a hard league with a lot of games.
