Spurs sign Colombia under 17 international Juan Pablo Gonzalez Velasco from Brentford:
Following our under 18’s 5-1 victory over Aston villa yesterday their was a new player on the team sheet, Juan Pablo Gonzalez Velasco who is an attacking midfielder will play for our under 18’s side following his arrival from championship side Brentford. The attacking midfielder who was on trial with Burnley last month was also linked with other top flight clubs including Chelsea. Following Nya Kirby’s decision to reject a scholarship at Spurs it seems as if Spurs were looking to recruit another talented attacking player as a replacement. Juan Pablo Gonzalez Velasco has been training with the under 18’s for the past few weeks now, and I remember seeing him in the stands along with the other under 18’s at the Lamex stadium a couple of weeks ago for Spurs under 23’s PL2 game against Everton. It’s unlikely that Spurs will officialy announce his arrival at the club as they don’t tend to announce new players that join the academy however, a profile of the forward may well be added to the academy section of the website in the near future. I look forward to seeing him play for the Lillywhites and wish him the very best of luck for the current campaign.
