Leeds and Stoke amongst clubs chasing midfielder

Tottenham’s Tashan Oakley-Boothe is a player in high demand this summer, with multiple Championship clubs ready to make a move for him according to the Daily Mail

Leeds, Derby, Swansea, Reading, Stoke and Huddersfield are all believed to be monitoring the youngster, who is yet to have experienced a loan move in his albeit short career.

The midfielder is a highly-rated youngster, and played a key role in the England U17 team which won the World Cup at that level two years ago.

The 19-year-old has made just a single appearance for the Spurs senior team, and he could be available on loan following the success of fellow Spurs player Josh Onomah’s loan spell at Sheffield Wednesday last season.

With six clubs rumoured to be interested Oakley-Boothe could have quite a big decision on his hands, although he may have a preference for Swansea. Manager Steve Cooper was the man behind England’s World Cup success and both parties would be keen to pair up once again.

The Verdict

It would be exciting to see Oakley-Boothe prove himself in the Championship, although some of the clubs listed may not be able to provide him with much game time.

He would fit in well at a club like Derby or Swansea. Both Philip Cocu and Steve Cooper work well with young players and give them the confidence to express themselves and play the game in the right manner, which would really suit Oakley-Boothe.

It will be a big learning curve for the Spurs man; he has very little experience of the men’s game and could take a while to adjust, which means an environment like Leeds or Stoke, where there is fierce competition for places, may not be ideal.
