Tottenham Hotspur have confirmed that academy defender, Malachi Fagan-Walcott has completed a loan move to Dundee FC until the end of the season.

Fagan-Walcott is also considered by many within the club to be a potential star for the future, having signed his first professional contract a week after Mourinho took charge.

The Spurs boss handed the 18-year-old his first-team debut in the Champions League defeat against RB Leipzig last season.

While the likes of Jack Clarke, Harvey White and Dane Scarlett have been handed first-team opportunities by Mourinho this season, Fagan-Walcott has been sidelined with an injury for which he had surgery back in the summer.

The central defender has now recovered and since made a couple of appearances for the Under-23s.

He now has an opportunity to impress in the Scottish Championship after joining Dundee FC for the rest of the season.

Dundee are currently sitting third in the Championship and the Tottenham youngster will be hoping to get regular game time under his belt for the club.

Spurs Web Opinion

Fagan-Walcott is thought of highly by Mourinho and I am convinced he would have got an opportunity in the Europa League or the FA Cup if not for his injury. Hopefully, the youngster can get game time under his belt at Dundee and return to Spurs in the summer with much more confidence and experience.
