Tottenham have become notorious under Mauricio Pochettino for progressing exciting youngsters into the first-team setup at White Hart Lane, with Harry Winks and Harry Kane two of the biggest success stories of late.
However, it appears that the Tottenham quartet have not done enough to convince the north London club to extend their deals with the club beyond the current season.
It was later revealed by a third account that academy stars Luke Amos, Anthony Georgiou, Tom Glover, Shayon Harrison, Will Miller, Shilow Tracey and Anton Walkes were all set to remain with the club.
Will Miller, Shilow Tracey and Anton Walkes have all signed or agreed to sign new deals.

The decision to hand new deals to a number of Tottenham’s promising academy shows Tottenham’s continued desire to pick out the most exciting prospects from within their vast pool of academy talent.
In other Tottenham transfer news, Spurs have missed out in their reported pursuit of European wonderkid Ozan Can Kokcu.
