Sources: Tottenham tell Jeremie Mukendi to find new club

Tottenham rising star Jeremie Mukendi is leaving the club at the end of next month, Football Insider understands.

The winger, 21, is out of contract at the Premier League giants on 30 June.

A Spurs source has told Football Insider that Mukendi has been informed he will be released when his current deal expires and he’s free to find a new club.

As revealed by this site in recent weeks, the attacker will join 18-year-olds Khalon Haysman and Dante Cassanova in leaving Spurs.

The teenagers are second-year academy scholars who have just over a month left on their deals.

Mukendi is three years older but, like Haysman and Cassanova, has yet to feature for the Tottenham first team.

He has been on the fringes of their Under-23s side this season, making just a single Premier League 2 appearance, which came in November.

The youngster is now looking for a new club after learning he is among a batch of rising stars who won’t be back next season.

Mukendi, a wide attacker who usually plays on the right side as well as down the middle, was a schoolboy sprint champion who won 100m and 200m events in borough-wide competitions for three straight years.

The Hackney-born youngster has gone on to play 20 times for the club’s Under-18s, as well as five times for the Under-23s.

Tottenham are letting the club’s second-year academy scholars know if they are being released or offered professional terms.
