Tottenham fans have taken to Twitter to express their despair at the impending exit of rising star Keanan Bennetts.

Football Insider exclusively revealed on Tuesday that left-winger Bennetts, 19, is in advanced talks to join German side Borussia Monchengladbach.

A well-placed source has told Football Insider that Bennetts will head to the country of his mother after playing for Germany at Under-15 level before switching his allegiances to England.

Bennetts has yet to make a senior appearance for Tottenham but he was tipped to graduate into the first team after being a regular for the Under-23s in Premier League 2 in the last two seasons.

Left-footed Bennetts, who can also play at full-back, has had an outstanding 2017-18 campaign, scoring nine goals and supplying eight assists in 32 games in all competitions for Spurs to catch the eye of Mauricio Pochettino.

However, Monchengladbach have moved in to offer Bennetts a quicker pathway to first-team football and they are expected to finalise a deal for the player to leave as soon as the transfer window opens later this week.

Tottenham fans are frustrated and upset to lose an academy player to the side that finished ninth in the Bundesliga this season, with comments including ‘absolutely gutted’, ‘shocked’ and ‘hate seeing him go’.

Here is a selection of their messages on Twitter:
