Paul Robinson has revealed there are a lot of good noises coming from the coaches at Tottenham about young goalkeeper Brandon Austin.

Speaking exclusively to Football Insider correspondent Laura O’Leary, the former Spurs shot-stopper revealed that he knew Tottenham coaches rated Austin very highly but pointed out he needed to get senior experience.

Austin is yet to make his senior debut for Tottenham but he did make the bench for Saturday’s 1-1 draw with Watford.

Robinson pointed out it was difficult for the 20-year-old to get experience and suggested that he may need to go out and get some game time on loan.

When asked what he had heard about Austin, Robinson told Football Insider: “There’s a lot of good noises coming out from the coaches at Spurs and I know they rate him very highly.

“He’s young, inexperienced, but how do you get experience if not given a chance?

“I was fortunate that at a young age I was thrown in due to injury but for him, he needs to bide his time and maybe get some game time on loan.”

Austin has featured a total of 34 times for Spurs’ U-23s and has conceded 64 goals as well as kept five clean sheets in the process.

The Spurs youngster has been regularly travelling with the first-team in recent weeks and notably got called up to Aidy Boothroyd’s England U-21s squad last month.
