Alasdair Gold thinks 18-year-old could be fast-tracked at Tottenham now

After watching both Alfie Dorrington and Ashley Phillips play for Tottenham’s Under-21 team this season, Alasdair Gold stated that Dorrington had impressed him more than Phillips.

There is a lot of optimism that many of the current Under-21 crop can develop into first-team prospects because the Spurs academy is producing an exciting crop of young players right now. This is especially true because Ange Postecoglou is not afraid to give young players opportunities.

While Alfie Devine and Dane Scarlett, two of Tottenham’s best prospects, are presently on loan at Ipswich Town and Port Vale, respectively, a number of other players are making an impression for the North London club’s youth teams.

Dorrington, an 18-year-old who has participated in every minute of the team’s Premier League 2 campaign thus far, is one of them (Transfermarkt).

Dorrington could be Spurs’ next breakout starlet

According to some reports from the past few weeks, Posteoclgou and his coaching staff have taken an interest in the young defender. If Eric Dier departs in January, there is even a chance that he will be promoted to the first team (Football Transfers).

The teenager appears to be a cut above many of his Under-21 teammates, according to Gold.

In response to a question about which Tottenham kid has most impressed him, the journalist stated on his YouTube channel, “Alfie Dorrington for me.” I’ve been impressed by Dorrington each time I’ve watched him. To be honest, I’ve been more impressed by him than by Ashley Phillips during the U21 games I’ve watched.

“Dorrington is a fantastic center-back; due to his exceptional talent, you’ll either see him involved more with the first team starting next season or fast-tracked with a brief loan.”

I can see Tottenham choosing to loan out Phillips and Dorrington to EFL teams for the second half of the season, given that the team is anticipated to sign at least one senior center-back in January.
