Tottenham Hotspur academy goalkeeper Isak Solberg has signed his first professional contract with the club.
The young Norwegian joined Spurs from Byrne FK last summer, for whom he had made his senior debut at the age of 14 in Norway’s third division.
The goalkeeper previously had trials with Tottenham’s Under-16s as well as Under-18s, before penning a three-year contract with the North Londoners last summer.
It was been reported that Tottenham’s initial plan was for the 17-year-old to remain part of the academy set up for the first two seasons before turning professional in his final year (Football.London).
However, it appears Spurs have been impressed enough with Solberg’s first year in the academy set up to offer him a professional contract.
The teenager, who has been capped by Norway at Under-16 and Under-17 leves, took to Instagram on Monday to reveal his delight at signing the deal.
Spurs Web Opinion
We have been linked with a fair few potential first-choice goalkeepers this summer but it is a number 2 or a number 3 that we might need, with Michel Vorm’s contract running out. I expect us to be in the market for a backup goalkeeper unless Nuno Santos believes Bradon Austin or Alfie Whiteman are ready to step up and take Vorm’s spot. The likes of Solberg and Jonathan De Bie are a good few years away from even being in the conversation at the moment.
