Tottenham’s highly rated 17-year-old striker Reo Griffiths is rumoured to have signed a new deal to stay at the club, according to both reputable sources on Twitter and Football.London.
Griffiths, who scored an impressive 33 goals in all competitions for Tottenham’s Under-18 side last season was the subject of interest from Celtic, Barcelona and RB Leipzig, where our former head of recruitment Paul Mitchell is now plying his trade.
There were fears that he would walk away from the club upon the expiry of his contract this summer but will instead remain for the third year of his scholarship.
Despite there being plenty of optimism over the potential of Griffiths, who turns 18 later this month, he needs to show that he can make the step up and bang the goals in when called upon for the Under-23 side and also the Under-19 side who will again compete in next season’s UEFA Youth League.
