Academy expert: These two Tottenham wonderkids will be first team regulars, this one will fall short
By London correspondent Tony Hughes
A Tottenham academy expert has backed Josh Onomah and Harry Winks to be first-team stars but believes Cameron Carter-Vickers will fall short of the required level.
The unofficial Tottenham academy Twitter account claimed in a question-and-answer session with the Spurs report blog that two of three Spurs wonderkids can make it at White Hart Lane.
Spurs have earned a reputation for producing and developing some of the best young talents in England in recent seasons.
Harry Kane, Ryan Mason Nabil Bentaleb, Tom Carroll, Danny Rose and Crystal Palace summer signing Andros Townsend all graduated from the Tottenham academy into the first-team squad, while Eric Dier and Dele Alli have taken huge strides in a very short time at White Hart Lane.
The next generation to come through the ranks include attacking midfielder Onomah, 19, central midfielder Winks, 20, and centre-back Carter-Vickers, 18.

Asked which of the trio can establish themselves as first-team regulars at Spurs by the age of 25, the Tottenham academy Twitter account told Spurs report: “I’d guess Onomah and Winks will be regulars, Carter-Vickers will fall just short of that level.”
The Tottenham academy Twitter account has developed a reputation for breaking stories, revealing in July that latest wonderkid Marucs Edwards had signed a new contract with the club.
