Tottenham Update: Henderson pursuit, Youngsters set for Europa bow, Davies captaincy

Tottenham borrow £175m to ease coronavirus impact

Dean Henderson pursuit

Tottenham are leading the race to sign the Manchester United keeper Dean Henderson at the end of this season.

Hugo Lloris is entering the final year of his contract in the summer and the London club needs to find a quality long term replacement for the French international.

Henderson is highly rated around England and he could prove to be a quality signing for the London club.

The 23 year old needs to leave Old Trafford in order to play regular first-team football. The player is thought to be frustrated at the lack of opportunities.

He has already proven his quality with Sheffield United during a loan spell last year and he should be able to make an immediate impact at Tottenham if he joins the London club.

Youngsters set to get a chance

Meanwhile Jose Mourinho is set to give Tottenham youngsters a chance against Wolfsberger in the Europa League this week.

According to reports, Dane Scarlett, Alfie Devine, Dennis Cirkin, Marcel Lavinier and Jamie Bowden are all set to join up with the Tottenham squad for the midweek game.

Spurs have a few injury issues and it will be interesting to see if the youngsters can step up and get the job done for the London club.

Davies to lead the side

Meanwhile, Ben Davies is set to captain the side during the Europa League game against Wolfsberger. 

The left-back is well respected by his teammates and he has been around for quite some time now.

It will be interesting to see if he can guide his side to the next round now.
