The Guardian release annual ‘next generation’ list – Spurs 16-year-old chosen

In a piece highlighting the brightest prospect at each Premier League club, Mikey Moore has been selected as the representative for Tottenham Hotspur.

The Tottenham first team are flying right now, with Ange Postecoglou having guided his new side to the top of the Premier League after six wins and two draws from the first eight matches.

This success has come as something of a surprise, given the fact Spurs lost perhaps their greatest-ever player in the summer when Harry Kane departed for Bayern Munich.

Kane was, of course, a product of the Tottenham academy, coming through the ranks to become the club’s all-time leading goalscorer.

have a number of young stars waiting in the wings to follow in Kane’s footsteps. The likes of Dane Scarlett, Alfie Devine, and Jamie Donley have all been touted as future first-team hits at the club.

But, there may be an even younger player who could trump them all – Mikey Moore.

Mikey Moore is the next generation at Spurs

The Guardian have compiled a report on the best talent at each Premier League club born between September 2006 and August 2007.

The report pinpoints the Under-17 Premier League cup final against Nottingham Forest in April of this year as “the moment when it felt as though the secret was out, when Mikey Moore entered the Tottenham mainstream.”

Those watching the game saw Moore score twice in a 5-1 win. Since then, the youngster has impressed the Spurs supporters with his “many qualities,” and the report describes how he “really quickens the pulse when he runs at opponents.”

Moore is now the youngest player in the “modern era” to feature for the Tottenham Under-21 side, doing so at just 15-years-old. The attacking midfielder committed his future to Spurs recently, despite “plenty of rivals” looking to tempt him away from his boyhood club.

It’s hard not to get too excited about a player like Mikey Moore. He is an exceptional young talent who definitely has what it takes to make it at the very top. We just have to ensure we nurture him correctly and we will have a superstar on our hands.
