    Spurs complete first signing of the summer as talented teenager officially puts pen to paper
    The club have made a new signing for the future this week

    Tottenham Hotspur have agreed a contract with a talented young Norwegian goalkeeper on a three-year deal.

    Bryne goalkeeper Isak Solberg, who turns 16 next month and is 6ft 2ins, signed a contract with Tottenham on Tuesday according to newspaper Stavanger Aftenblad.

    Bryne lies just 30km from Stavanger, the hometown of former Spurs goalkeeper Erik Thorstvedt.

    Norway youth international Solberg has been invited to two trials with Tottenham's U18s and U16s during the past six months and after he impressed was handed a contract offer which he signed on Tuesday but will not start until his 16th birthday next month.

    According to the report, it is a three-year contract which will see him be part of the academy set-up for the first two years and then in the final year turn professional and get a wage increase.

    The report also states that Jim Solbakken, Ole Gunnar Solskjær's friend, business partner and agent, assisted Solberg's familiy in the negotiations with Tottenham.

    Bryne general manager Asle Tjøtta had previously stated that the club was not entitled to a transfer fee for the player as he had no official contract with the team and is the son of the club's former goalkeeper coach, Thomas Solberg.

    However, Tjøtta has now admitted that Bryne would be left with some compensation for teenager, adding: "Tottenham have been very good."

    Spurs will be hoping the teenage keeper continues to catch the eye of academy head John McDermott and eventually first team goalkeeper coach Toni Jiminez over the coming years.

    Successful loan from his perspective. Glad it worked out for him.

    There are worse areas in Kent, sadly quite a few actually. The "garden" is getting paved over these days anyway.

    The whole of Medway is a dump and Sheppy is like going back in time but Gillingham is going to take some beating as the worst place in the county.

    I do like Kent some real beautiful areas but my GHod the are some awful ones as well, as you said up by the Medway. As London moves further out I guess more development and more people might improve the gene pool a bit, it certainly needs it.

    I live in Kent and Chatham and Dover have to be worse than Gillingham.

    "I await our released and retained lists with baited breath"

    What's he baiting his breath with, I wonder.

    I wait with breath abated for an answer.

    It's a two year contract evidently. Let's hope he gets some time in pre-season and a decent loan this season.

    He's 20....so i think some assurances of first team involvement must have been offered, as at that age i can see why you look to find regular football elsewhere or at least a pathway.

    If his path is looking blocked at least we can find him a good loan, that can still help his development.

    Not sure why it feels so difficult if youre the 'home grown' player to carry the gravitas of the shiny youngster from abroad or the championship. Its almost like they know you too well. Foden is in a similar position at City, while Sancho thought 'f.ck this' i know im good and am not hanging around.

    Apparently so. Highly rated young centre forward. Had played a few first team games for them at only 16 I think.
