Tottenham midfielder Filip Lesniak is set to be named in the Tottenham squad to face Hull City on Sunday afternoon, according to a club insider.
The unofficial Tottenham academy account reported in a Twitter exchange with a supporter of the club that the Slovakian, 21, is “will be involved again” even though his contract expires at the end of the season.
@Anuth All I know is Harrison and Amos haven’t been registered in time. Assume Lesniak will be involved again.

The insider, who is a hugely reliable source of information about the club’s young players, also revealed that Spurs tried to register striker Shayon Harrison and midfield anchorman Luke Amos in time for the clash at the KCOM Stadium.
However, the Premier League big hitters were unable to tie up the registrations of Harrison, 19, and Amos, 20, in time.
The duo have just seven minutes of senior action between them, with Harrison making his Tottenham debut as a late substitute in their League Cup defeat to Liverpool last October.
The account had broken the news on Twitter on Thursday that Lesniak and attacking midfielder Samuel Shashoua had been promoted into the Spurs matchday squad for the trip to the King Power Stadium.
In a game memorable for the four goals from Harry Kane that took him to the top of the Premier League scoring charts with one match of the season remaining, Lesniak was handed his first-team debut by Mauricio Pochettino when he replaced Mousa Dembele after 86 minutes.
It was the first taste of senior Spurs action for the central midfielder, who spent the first half of the season on loan at Slovan Liberec before returning in January to be a regular for Tottenham’s development team in Premier League 2.
However, the signs are that he will leave the north Londoners within weeks as his contract expires at the end of next month.
The academy account has a growing reputation as a reliable source of Spurs news, and has broken a number of stories about youth-team players and coaches at the club, including the revelation last summer that Edwards had committed to a new White Hart Lane deal and in January that centre-back Anton Walkes had agreed a transfer to the MLS.
