League One midfielder: I'm in touch with everyone at Tottenham
By Will Butcher
Luke Amos wants to showcase what he has learned on loan at League One Southend with Tottenham in the future.
The 20-year-old midfielder has found it difficult at Roots Hall since his January switch, finally making his professional debut with the club on Saturday in a 3-2 win over Walsall.
But Amos has revealed his desire to show Spurs the learning curve he has experienced under manager Phil Brown when he returns in the summer.
“They’re a good bunch [at Spurs] so they’re always asking how you’re doing and how you’re feeling and it’s the same the other way round,” Amos told Southend’s official website.
“I’ve kept in touch with everyone at the club and how the mood is at their place.

“I’ve just got to use this knowledge that I’ve taken on board so when my opportunity to play comes I can showcase it all.”
Joining Southend on loan in January, Amos has warmed the bench under Brown before finally making his debut last weekend in the holding midfield role.
Beforehand, Amos was a regular member of Spurs’ reserve side, captaining the side on eight occasions in his 11 outings in Premier League 2.
Now, the two-time England Under-18’s international will be hoping to keep his place in Brown’s side, as the Shrimpers travel to Wimbledon on Saturday in an attempt to consolidate their play-off place.
