Tottenham Hotspur have confirmed that Alfie Devine has signed his first professional contract with the club which will run until 2024.
Devine was a former Liverpool academy player who went on to join Wigan Athletic and signed a long-term contract Lactics in June of last year, less than a month before they went into administration.
He made the move to Tottenham last July for a £500,000 fee to ease Wigan’s financial issues (Evening Standard).
The midfielder secured his place in the Tottenham record books when he came off the bench in the FA Cup third round clash against non-league Marine last season to become the youngest-ever player and goalscorer in a competitive fixture.
The deal has been confirmed on Devine’s 17th birthday.
Devine is destined for a bright future in the game, having caught the eye when playing for the club’s U23 side and also during his brief outing against Marine.
Hopefully he will be given the opportunity to feature in the early rounds of the UEFA Conference League this season to gain further first-team footballing experience, while a loan move in January could also be of further benefit.
