England’s goalless draw with the United States at the World Cup may have been a forgettable encounter, but that was not the case when both nations’ under-16 sides met at the Football Federations Cup on Sunday.
The tournament, which was won by hosts Spain, is where young and talented players aim to leave their mark and kick on to bigger and better things.
Alasdair Gold has told his YouTube channel that 15-year-old prospect Mikey Moore is understood to be happy at Tottenham Hotspur amid links with interest from other clubs.
Moore is one of the extremely talented youngsters to watch at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium. As noted by The Athletic, the teenager is exciting.
He has been in superb form for Spurs’ under-18s this season. Moore has scored twice and contributed four assists in seven games in the under-18 Premier League.
Mikey Moore is understood to be happy at Tottenham
Obviously, it is likely to be some time before he appears on Antonio Conte’s radar. But it would appear that Spurs may be facing a battle to keep the young forward.
Gold noted that speculation exists that he could be wanted elsewhere. According to the journalist, Moore would be happy to stay at Hotspur Way if that were the case.
“Young Mikey Moore, I don’t want to big him up too much because I think he’s 15, but he’s playing very much above his age group. He’s been linked with other clubs,” he told his YouTube channel.
“From what I understand, I think he is supposed to be happy at Spurs. But again, we’re talking about a 15-year-old. I really don’t want to go that way and hype up these players because a 15-year-old becoming a star is such a long way still to go.”
