Tottenham defender will leave the club next year - report

By London correspondent Tony Hughes

Tottenham defender Christian Maghoma is set to leave the club at the end of the season, according to a report.

The unofficial Tottenham academy Twitter account claimed on Saturday night that the Spurs academy product will not be at the club next year.

It is said that the centre-back, 18, is heading for the exit door even though he is a regular for the club’s Under-23s team.

Maghoma has played five matches for the development side this season in Premier League 2 after being a key member of the club’s Under-21s side in the last year.

Spurs have earned a reputation for producing and developing some of the best young talents in England in recent seasons.
