Didn't someone tweet the other day that he rejected them back in October November time.

Edit: so they did, it's on the previous page.

Not sure if the United fans understand how big this would've been for them, or in fact what he's done for our setup. Seen a few responses on twitter like "Oh wow, a Spurs "scout" just turned us down... how will we ever cope" and "We'll just take him when we take Pochettino and Kane in the summer"

Bless them.

The main thing I get from this is how positive it looks to the younger players at the club, and the potential for other youngsters to see us as a viable option when they see the way everything is improving throughout the whole set - up. Not just the training ground but a place where the staff feel there is a bright future

Also, suggests McDermott feels there is significant talent coming through that staying really is a no brainer.

I think it was the express reporting that man united are now making cut of 15% to every department and really cutting back at their academy, due the there massive spend on transfers and the possibility of missing out of Cl again.

Apparently has been given a promotion - into Baldini's old job:

Tottenham Academy ‏@thfcacademy
I hear there has been a change of staff in the academy: Dean Rastrick is the new Academy Director, John McDermott is now technical director.

Tottenham Academy ‏@thfcacademy
McDermott will now work with the first-team in addition to overseeing the Academy.


Shows how our focus has shifted from black book to production line
