Tottenham rising star Keanan Bennetts has agreed the terms of a new contract with the club, according to the Football Association.
New documents registered with the governing body show that the wide forward, 18, signed a fresh deal with Spurs on 22 December
There has been no announcement from Tottenham about a new contract for Bennetts, who has a profile on the official Spurs website.
But paperwork on the official FA website shows that an agreement was reached for the youngster to extend his association with Tottenham nearly two months ago.
Bennetts is highly regarded by the Spurs academy coaches, who have been impressed by his progress through the ranks of the club.
The teenager is yet to make a senior appearance for the club but has been a regular for the Under-23s in Premier League 2 in the last two seasons.
Football Insider verdict
Bennetts is a hugely rated youngster at Spurs and his versatility has impressed the club’s coaches, who have used him on both flanks in attacking roles as well at left-back this season. In 27 matches for the Under-23s, the teenager has scored four goals and supplied six assists. Should he continue to develop at his current rate, it is surely only a matter of time as to when he is fast-tracked into the senior set-up.
In other Tottenham news, a sensational swap deal with fourth-placed club is on the cards in a shock development.
