Tottenham have reportedly secured the services of former West Ham United starlet Ferdinand Okoh on a short-term deal.
The 15-year-old Nigerian was deemed surplus to requirements at the London Stadium club and was subsequently released. However, the midfielder has made significant improvements to his game since leaving the Hammers and now looks set for a trial period with Mauricio Pochettino's side.
Following his departure from West Ham last year, Okoh enlisted the help of several well-respected trainers in an effort to develop his skill-set. The tactic appears to have paid off, with his range of passing and ability to disrupt opposition moves coming in for praise.
According to All Nigeria Soccer, he will be given a chance to prove himself in Spurs' youth setup, with the youngster likely to begin life in the Under-16 squad.
The highly-rated teenager is not the only player with Nigerian roots being brought in to Spurs' youth system.
