Tottenham have confirmed that highly-rated striker Dane Scarlett has signed his first professional contract at the club.
Having been triggered by his recent 17th birthday, the teenager has committed his future to Spurs until the summer of 2023, penning a two-year deal.
Scarlett made his first-team debut against Ludogorets in the group stages of the Europa League back in November before making further appearances against Wolfsberger and then West Brom, which was his Premier League debut.
The 17-year-old has been in outstanding form for Tottenham’s youth sides this season, scoring 22 goals for the Under-18s and Under-23s combined, including a four-goal haul in an FA Youth Cup victory over Newport County in January.
Following his impressive cameo off the bench against Wolfsberger, Jose Mourinho revealed that the youngster, who was an unused substitute against Aston Villa last Sunday, would be a first-team player next season.
With Scarlett being one of the most exciting prospects at Spurs for many years, Tottenham have been reacting to his contract news on Twitter.
