Tottenham Hotspur: Spurs journalist discusses Harvey White

On the latest episode of The Extra Inch podcast, Chris Miller, Nathan Clark and Bardi have been discussing some of the latest goings-on at Tottenham Hotspur, reflecting on Spurs’ start to pre-season and answering questions regarding tactics and transfers from fans of the show. 

One topic of discussion on the recent episode, which was titled: ‘We’re back for a pre-season round-up‘, was Spurs youngster Harvey White. The academy graduate was confirmed to be training with the Spurs first-team towards the end of the 2019/20 campaign, and featured as a substitute in the recent friendly win against Ipswich Town, suggesting that Jose Mourinho has high hopes for the 18-year-old’s future with the North London club.

Which player scored Spurs' first goal of the Premier League campaign?

Here’s what Miller had to say about the young midfielder, when asked about his similarity to Harry Winks, on the podcast:

“They’re not dissimilar, but White has much more long-range passing in his game. White has a tremendous left-foot, so there will be lots of switches of play with Harvey White. I definitely think White could do a job in the first team like now, in the Europa League games, I think he could fit in. I see no reason why he couldn’t fit in. I’ve said many times before, I think he’s the best set-piece taker at the club. He had that one free-kick chance [against Ipswich], which wasn’t the best, but he’s very, very good from dead balls.”

TIF Thoughts…

White is described as a dead-ball specialist in his profile on the Tottenham Hotspur website, and Miller certainly seems to agree that he can be a threat from set-piece situations.

Would you like to see White establish himself as a regular in the first-team in the upcoming season?





As the podcaster suggests, perhaps we will see the 18-year-old feature in the first-team in the not too distant future –  potentially in the Europa League games, as the fact that he has regularly been training with the first-team seems to suggest that Mourinho sees a lot in him.
