Tottenham are ready to loan striker Dane Scarlett and midfielder Alfie Devine for the first time in the summer.
“Harry Kane is my idol. I’m very fortunate to see him everyday in training and obviously watch him when he plays games.” – Scarlett.
With Spurs expected to sign a striker to support Harry Kane in the summer and also a midfielder, Spurs are ready to loan striker Dane Scarlett and midfielder Alfie Devine to gain first team experience next season, likely either to the Championship or to League One to guarantee them a playing time according to Alasdair Gold.
Conte, however, recently praised Scarlett’s improvement, having watched him closely in first team training.
“I’m seeing a lot of improvement today in Scarlett honestly if I have to tell you. Seeing that this guy is improving a lot, he’s only 17-years-old but I can tell you that he is a really important prospect for Tottenham.”
“He has to be patient and work behind these very important players and continue to work in this way because about Scarlett, I can tell you that I see a brilliant future for him.”
Devine is a midfielder with an immense amount of promise and is considered a player who could potentially break into the first team within a few years. He’s excelled at U23 football this season at age 17, scoring 9 goals primarily as a central or attacking midfielder.
Both Scarlett and Devine have yet to play first team football anywhere, so this would be a new experience for Tottenham to loan Dane Scarlett and Alfie Devine. It would also be, hopefully, an important step in their development as footballers.
