Report: Spurs secure winger on long-term deal despite interest from ‘many top European clubs’

Tottenham Hotspur have managed to secure the services of highly-rated winger Mickey Moore having fended off interest from a number of clubs, according to The Athletic.

The 15-year-old has signed a new contract at Tottenham on Friday which will see him move from scholarship to schoolboy forms and once he turns 17, he will sign a professional contract with the north Londoners in what has been described as securing his long-term future.

Moore, who is used to playing above his own age grade was part of Tottenham’s trophy-winning teams at Under-17 and Under-18 level last season and also made appearances for the Under-19s in the UEFA Youth League against the likes of Marseille.

The winger was attracting interest from a number of clubs both in England and abroad, with Fabrizio Romano revealing on Twitter yesterday that Spurs chairman Daniel Levy had also intervened to ensure Moore continues his career in n17.

Romano said on Twitter: “Understand Tottenham are winning the race to keep Mikey Moore. Daniel Levy is making sure he does everything in his power to keep the superstar 15 year old at the club.

“Many top European clubs want him but Spurs are now close to an agreement to keep him.”

The news of Moore’s commitment to Tottenham represents a huge boost with the club having lost some significant talent in recent years, including earlier this week the decision of Romaine Mundle to reject a new deal in order to leave as a free agent.

Moore has made 10 international caps for England, three for the Under-15 and seven for the Under-16s, the teenager possesses blistering pace.

Tottenham’s academy has not exactly been a conveyer belt to the first team in recent years, with Oliver Skipp arguably the last person to have made the jump from the youth set-up to become a first-team regular.

Hopefully with Ange Postecoglou now at the club and work being done behind the scenes to improve the structure of the academy it will mean that young talent will see there is an opportunity to break into the first team, rather than leave for opportunities elsewhere such as Mundle, Noni Makueke and Luis Binks.
