Tottenham Hotspur have a rich history of bringing academy starlets into the first team in North London, especially in recent years under the likes of Pochettino, Redknapp, Sherwood, AVB, and now Mourinho.

Of course, Harry Kane and Harry Winks remain the two prime examples of the Spurs academy system within the current starting XI.

However, fans will remember that Kane graduated from the academy along with the likes of Andros Townsend, Ryan Mason, Nabil Bentaleb, Tommy Carroll, Jake Livermore, and co.

Jose Mourinho has put his faith in Japhet Tanganga in recent weeks after handing the young defender a chance in the game against Liverpool earlier this year.

The 20-year-old has now officially been moved from the academy section of the Spurs website to the first-team ranks for the first time.

Oliver Skipp, who emerged as a teenage talent under Pochettino, and reserve goalkeeper Alfie Whiteman have also been bumped up into the first-team on the website.
