Reports claim that Spurs are interested in signing the Aston Villa youngster Andre Green.
The 17-year old winger made two Premier League appearances last season – one against Tottenham – and has represented England at U16 and U17 level.
Green turns 18 this week and has featured in Villa’s friendlies over the summer, as the Birmingham club prepares for life in the Championship. The new Villa manager Roberto Di Matteo brought Green off the bench yesterday to play the last 30 minutes of Villa’s 1-0 victory over Nantes.
This might well be a case of Tottenham monitoring the progress of an impressive young player with an eye to a future signing, rather than making a move before the transfer window closes. Watch Green in action – he’s the one playing on the left flank – in Villa’s FA Youth Cup clash with Crystal Palace last season.
