Tottenham insider, John Wenham has revealed that J’Neil Bennett could be set to break through at the club after impressing Nuno Espirito Santo.
Wenham runs the Lilywhite Rose Twitter account which gives regular updates on the club on social media.
He spoke to Football Insider about the 19-year-old Bennett who is currently on loan at Crewe Alexandra.
The winger is one of the exciting prospects at the club and he has been tipped to follow the likes of Harry Winks and Oliver Skipp to graduate to the first team.
Spurs know his development needs regular game time at the senior level and they agreed to allow him to leave the club on loan this summer.
He has a goal in three league outings so far and the latest came in Crewe’s last game against Burton when he drove down the left and fired into the bottom corner.
Wenham says the youngster is set for a big future at the club after he impressed Nuno Santo this summer.
“J’Neil is a really interesting player,” he told Football Insider.
“He came onto my radar as a 15 or 16-year-old, he was playing up with the Under-18s. He is very, very gifted.
“I have been really impressed with him. He has a signature move where he runs down the left, cuts in and bends it into the far corner.
“J’Neil was actually the first scorer in the new Tottenham stadium, he scored in the test event against Southampton so he always has that history.
“He hasn’t done too much training with the first team until this season. Nuno and his staff have obviously taken a liking to him.
“J’Neil actually made his first-team debut in the Conference League qualifier then the loan option appeared.
“What is great about that is under Pochettino especially, players weren’t getting those loans.
“He went on trial to Crewe earlier in the summer and clearly impressed them, which is why he joined. He has such an unpredictability about him.
“I’m really pleased for him, I hope next season he can come back and maybe get another loan into the Championship or maybe challenge in the squad.”
