Fagan-Walcott was once considered a promising academy prospect who could break into the first team at Tottenham.
He made his senior debut for the club in 2020 at the age of 18 during a Champions League match against RB Leipzig. However, this appearance remains his sole outing for the first team.
In 2021, the defender was loaned out to Dundee United but suffered a season-ending injury during his loan spell. Injuries have hampered his development since then, leading to his departure from the club.
With a fresh start on the horizon, Fagan-Walcott will be looking to revive his career away from Tottenham. The club underwent significant changes in its defensive lineup over the summer, with several players departing on loan or making permanent moves to other clubs.
The centre-back will be hoping that a fresh start away would help revive his career.
