Tottenham Hotspur have many bright prospects in their academy and in their squad that are already showing so much promise.

Current Tottenham players, Harry Kane and Harry Winks, are products of the club's academy and have grown within the club over the years to become regular first team players.

So many of the team's academy players have bright futures ahead of them, but five of them in particular.

Harvey White

Academy player, Harvey White, is expected to have a bright future with the club. White is currently on loan at EFL League One side Portsmouth.

The promising player begun his loan spell well scoring his first professional goal on his first start.

Whilst playing for Spurs, the midfielder featured in the Premier League squad when he was an unused substitute against Manchester United in June 2020 and made his competitive debut in the UEFA Europa League against Ludogorets when he came on as a substitute.

He made his full debut for Spurs when he started in the FA Cup win against Marine FC at the start of the year before joining Pompy later in the month.

Already showing lots of promise, the English midfielder can swing a free kick into the back of the net.

Oliver Skipp

Oliver Skipp joined the Spurs academy in 2013 before signing a three-year contract with the club properly in 2018.

By the end of the 2018/19 season, he had featured 12 times for the first team. He made his debut for the Lilywhites against fellow London team West Ham United in the Carabao Cup.

At the start of the current season, Skipp joined Championship side Norwich City on loan. He has easily been one of the club's and league’s best players this season, featuring in all the Canaries' games.

The defensive midfielder has public admirers in the form of former manager Mauricio Pochettino, Daniel Farke and Jose Mourinho. He is showing his skills at such a young age and after progressing so much already, he is anticipated to have a good future in North London.

The player recently got called up to England’s under 21 camp.

Jack Clarke

Jack Clarke joined Spurs from Leeds United in July 2019 before rejoining the Whites on loan for the season. His loan spell did not work out and he joined Queens Park Rangers on loan for the rest of that season.

At the start of this season, Clarke spent half the season with Spurs making three appearances with the club before joining Stoke City in January.

Despite a rocky road along the way in the last few seasons, Clarke has a lot of potential that made Spurs sign him in the first place.

He performed well for Leeds on many occasions during their first season under Marcelo Bielsa and won the teams Young Player of the Year award.

The Yorkshireman is only 20 years old and has a long career ahead of him.

Dane Scarlett

Dane Scarlett joined Spurs as a child and was in the academy during the early years of Gareth Bale and Luka Modric, meeting the pair who later joined Real Madrid.

Like White, Scarlett made his competitive debut for Spurs when he came on in the Europa League in November against Ludogorets. He became the youngest player to ever play in a senior game for the Lilywhites.

Building on the record breaking, Scarlett broke another record at the club when he came on as a substitution against West Bromwich Albion in February becoming the club's youngest ever play to appear in the Premier League.

That day, Mourinho said: “I wanted to be the one to put him on in a Premier League match because I know he will be a somebody in a few years.”

Alfie Devine

Alfie Devine joined Spurs from Wigan Athletic in the summer of 2020 after the Latics went into administration.

Since then, the midfielder made his debut for the club both in the academy and in the first team.

At the start of this year, Devine made his first team debut and, beating Scarlett’s record, because the youngest player to appear in a senior game for the club.

In the same game, he scored his first professional goal for the club.

At only 16-years-old, it is still only early in his career but after scoring on his debut and showing signs of potential, big things are expected of the youngster for the future.
