Spurs pursuing the *next* Dele Alli, targeting three Football League teenagers. My story in tomorrow's Indy: http://www.independent.co.uk/sport/football/transfers/dele-alli-success-leads-tottenham-to-track-three-other-youngsters-a6838101.html…

The targets are Moussa Dembele at Fulham, James Maddison at Coventry and Ademola Lookman at Charlton. Like Alli, it's buy now, play later.
Is he a reliable source?

Let's face it every lower league footballer in the country is going to want to sign for us given the rise of Alli and the knowledge that Poch doesn't care who you are, if you are good enough you play.

These kids know that plenty have gone to City or Chelsea and disappeared into their youth systems. We need to take advantage of our current standing in regards to youth prospects.

You'd hope so. You can see the flip of 'I can prove myself' I guess, but pretty much going to end up mid-table somewhere or lost in the lower leagues.

Norwich to win race for Coventry's Maddison

HITC Sport understands Norwich are set to land Liverpool and Tottenham target.


Norwich City are set to win the race to sign Coventry City midfielder James Maddison, HITC Sport understands from sources close to the club.

Maddison is regarded as one of the best young talents in the Football League and has attracted the interest of the likes of Liverpool and Tottenham.

However, Norwich have moved quickly to set up a deal for Maddison to beat their Premier League rivals to the skilful midfielder.

Liverpool are believed to have made an approach to sign Maddison and then loan him back to Coventry, but they failed to agree a deal.

Coventry have reluctantly agreed to sell Maddison and his arrival is something of a coup for Norwich in relation to the competition for the 19-year-old.

Apparently they wanted £7 million for him. He's only played a handful of games. Nobody in their right mind is going to pay that.

Coventry saying they aren't done with the window yet, but plenty of conjecture either way as to whether this has anything to do with Maddison.

Sounds like we're not done yet either.
