Tottenham now believes that the ‘gifted’ young player will never make it into the first squad.

At Tottenham Hotspur, there is a perception that Brooklyn Lyons-Foster, a young player, may never make the first team.

On the Last Word on Spurs Podcast as the international break was nearing to an end, journalist Alasdair Gold was interviewed.

Tottenham is now anticipating meeting Sheffield United on Saturday afternoon in North London.

After a stellar start to the season, Spurs fans will be eagerly anticipating the team’s return to play.

Following a challenging campaign under Antonio Conte, Ange Postecoglou has sparked a complete turn around in the team’s fortunes.

He had a lot of work to do over the summer to reorganize his team, adding a few new players but also letting go of a number of others who were no longer needed.

Hugo Lloris and Eric Dier weren’t in his plans, but they continued to work at the club.

Both players were named to Tottenham’s Premier League roster when it was revealed yesterday.

However, Brooklyn Lyons-Foster, 22, was the only senior player who was left off the roster.

At Tottenham, there is now a perception that Lyons-Foster might never advance to the first team.

It may be time for the versatile player to find a loan move or even go on permanently as he is now too old to play for the senior team.

Lyons-Foster is unlikely to make the first team for Tottenham

When asked if it was odd that Spurs selected Alfie Whiteman over Lyons-Foster for the squad, Alasdair Gold responded, “That was the one that I must admit when I looked at it and I thought, [Alfie] Whiteman had ankle surgery, he’s going to be out for a little while, I’m not entirely sure when he’s coming back.

However, let’s be honest; he will still be the fourth choice.

Brooklyn Lyons-Foster is a fantastic player, and I’ve seen him play in a wide range of positions before, so I hate to bring this up again.

He has featured in defensive midfield and the central pairing at the back just this season.

“I just believe it’s perhaps more of a sign that they simply don’t think he was ever going to get into the first team setup,” the author said.

And that only Alfie Whiteman has been around the first team setup for a few years while players like Alfie Dorrington and Ashley Phillips are ahead of him.

Lyons-Foster will be eager to disprove the doubters at Tottenham who doubt his ability to advance to the first team.

Despite sitting on the bench twice for the senior team, he has yet to make his Under-21s debut despite playing in every match so far this season.

It’s challenging to imagine Lyons-Foster getting a chance anytime soon given that Postecoglou is a great supporter of Ashley Phillips and Alfie Dorrington.
