Tottenham Hotspur youngster Shayon Harrison has completed aloan move to A-League Club Melbourne City. The youngster who came through the ranks at Spurs was very highly rated during his time at different youth levels.

The 21-year-old spent the second half of 2016-17 season on loan at League 2 club Yeovil Town before moving up a level with a loan move to Southend United last season. However, the forward failed to impress during his stints at either clubs as he has only managed 28 appearances in his past two seasons, finding the back of the net on one occasion.

The fact that the club have now sent him on loan to an Australian side indicates that they have made up their minds about him. Harrison made one appearance for the senior team coming on in the 83rd minute for Georges-Kévin Nkoudou in a 2–1 defeat to Liverpool in the EFL Cup in the 2016-17 season. During the cup tie, he had a great opportunity to get on the scoresheet, but was unable to convert the opportunity.

The Hornsey-born academy product expressed his delight at finalising the move to Melbourne City FC. He could make his debut for his new team when they welcome Adelaide United on Saturday.

Here’s what Harrison tweeted after completing the move:
