Alfie Devine has signed his first professional contract at Tottenham, the club have confirmed.
The midfielder celebrates his 17th birthday today, and has penned a three year deal with the club.
Devine, who was remarkably born after EURO 2004, joined from Wigan as a 15-year-old for £300,000 and became Tottenham’s youngest ever player when he was a half-time substitute against Non-League outfit Marine in the FA Cup third-round back in January.
And Devine needed just 15 minutes to become the club’s youngest goalscorer in history when he thumped home an impressive effort to make it 5-0.
Despite spending the majority of the campaign with the Under-18s and Under-21s, Devine was rewarded for his rapid development by being named on the bench for Premier League games against Brighton in January and Aston Villa in March.
He’s continued to be involved with the first-team in pre-season – playing the second 45 minutes against Leyton Orient before being he was an unused substitute against Colchester.
