Former Tottenham Hotspur youngster, Jack Roles has now taken to Twitter to send a message to the club and the fans following his exit from North London.

Spurs announced earlier this week that Danny Rose and Paulo Gazzaniga would be leaving the club following the end of their respective contracts. However, Jack Roles was also among the academy players listed as releases.

Roles spent 16 years at Tottenham, joining the academy as a young child and working his way through the ranks, even playing for the senior team in the 2019 pre-season Audi Cup tournament.

The youngster later enjoyed loan spells at Cambridge United, Burton Albion and Stevenage, with the former being particularly successful.

In the Spurs youth sides, Roles appeared 33 times, scored 12 and assisted five for the U23, played 23, scored 16 and assisted 4 for the U18, and played 18, scored four and assisted three for the UEFA U19 team (TransferMarkt).

The midfield man took to Twitter to send a message to the club, the fans, his family and John McDermott.

Roles said: ‘16 years of playing for Spurs has finally come to an end. As sad as it is, it’s time for me to move on and try to further my career.

‘I would like to say a massive thank you to all my family, the fans and especially John McDermott who believed in me when others didn’t.’
