Tottenham insider: Bennett has made big impression on 'Nuno and his staff'
J’Neil Bennett has a big future at Tottenham after impressing Nuno Espirito Santo this summer.
That is according to Spurs insider John Wenham, who regularly breaks news about the club on his Lilywhite Rose social media channels.
The 19-year-old scored his first goal for loan club Crewe last weekend, driving down the left and firing into the bottom corner against Burton.
The youngster was handed his first-team debut earlier this summer, playing nine minutes against Pacos in the Europa Conference League play-off.
Wenham has tipped Bennett for a big future after Nuno took a liking to the player over the summer.
“J’Neil is a really interesting player,” Wenham told Football Insider correspondent Ben Wild.

“He came onto my radar as a 15 or 16-year-old, he was playing up with the Under-18s. He is very, very gifted.
“I have been really impressed with him. He has a signature move where he runs down the left, cuts in and bends it into the far corner.
“J’Neil was actually the first scorer in the new Tottenham stadium, he scored in the test event against Southampton so he always has that history.
“He hasn’t done too much training with the first team until this season. Nuno and his staff have obviously taken a liking to him.
“J’Neil actually made his first-team debut in the Conference League qualifier then the loan option appeared.
“What is great about that is under Pochettino especially, players weren’t getting those loans.
“He went on trial to Crewe earlier in the summer and clearly impressed them, which is why he joined. He has such an unpredictability about him.
“I’m really pleased for him, I hope next season he can come back and maybe get another loan into the Championship or maybe challenge in the squad.
