    Devine turns 18 on the 1st August, maybe a loan to a lower division club where he is guaranteed first team football would be the way to go

    I'm sure I've read somewhere that we intend to keep him at Spurs due to a homegrown rule.

    Same as we did Parrott. They need to be at the club for 2 years before the age over 18.

    Might be possible that he goes out on loan in January.

    Joined in july 2020. Stays next season that will make him club trained. Then we can loan out without worrying.

    Fair enough i suppose.

    Very good goal that.

    Often performances in these tournaments has little impact, but if he does well it may make it easier for us to get the right loan for him if we want to go down that route at this point.

    Harry Brooks (twitter) keeps saying very good things about him, even that he should be considered close to ready for first team football for us. With us adding Bissouma to the already existing very good central midfielders here game time will be very hard to come by with him being so young.

    A loan could be good.

    Agreed. Skippy's stint at Norwich should be the target for every young Spurs player -- play every week for a competitive lower division side. As you say, hopefully a good tournament will get Devine a few suitors. Is he ready for the Championship, or would he be better off playing every game in Div 1?

    The ultimate would be when Spurs can afford to loan out promising players to lower Premiership clubs -- like Conor Gallagher's loan to Palace. We're some way away from that sort of squad depth, however.

    It was a good result but I thought the England team looked like a bunch of strangers, they didnt seem any cohesion in their play and many didnt seem to know where their team mates were on the pitch.

    I think that he is a lot more rounded (not fat) player that Lampard. Devine can play any of the central midfield positions

    So could lampard at youth level
    Lampard was a very good player
    But style wise what I’ve seen of Devine and the way he strikes a ball is similar

    That statement does a disservice to how good a player Lampard was. He could also play in any position in the midfield, just was so good going forward that it made sense for him to play as an attacking midfielder. I personally think that Lampard was better than Gerrard and just didn’t have the whole Liverpool hype machine behind him like Gerrard did.

    if Devine ends up being even 90% as good as Lamard was then we’ll have a very special player on our hands (and I have said plenty of times on here that Devine is head and shoulders the best player in our new under 23 squad).
