Tottenham fans have taken to Twitter to show they have been left underwhelmed by a new contract for young goalkeeper Brendon Austin.

It was confirmed on Spurs’ official Twitter account on Monday that Austin, 18, agreed terms to a new year-and-a-half deal which will run until the end of the 2018/19 season.

Austin has never made a single appearance in the Spurs first-team but has been ever-present in the development squads, playing 11 times across all competitions this season including Premier League 2, UEFA Youth League and the EFL Trophy.

The goalkeeper was born in England but is eligible to play for the USA national side and has already earned a call-up to the US Under-18s side in the past.

Tottenham fans don’t seem overly bothered about his new deal though and suggest that they would rather see Toby Alderweireld pen a new agreement over anyone else.

One supporter claims that “this isn’t looking good” due to being unable to find out about him on YouTube.

Here is a selection of their tweets:

Spurs have prided themselves on their ability to bring through young players in recent years with Harry Kane, Harry Winks and Kyle Walker-Peters all stepping up into the first-team fray.

Mauricio Pochettino has also given chances to young players that have been signed from other clubs with Davinson Sanchez and Dele Alli making a marked improvement under the Argentine’s leadership.

In other Tottenham news, this Spurs defender has emerged on the radar of one of their Premier League rivals with Pochettino now facing a tough transfer decision.
