Journalist Alasdair Gold revealed that Jude Soonsup-Bell looked a “real handful” after making an “impressive” debut for the  Tottenham Hotspur Under-21s.

What’s the latest on Spurs and Jude Soonsup-Bell?

On transfer deadline day, Spurs added a new player to their academy as they swooped in to land the 19-year-old on a deal that will run until June 2025.

The teenager had been with Chelsea from under-13 level all the way up to making his debut with the club before leaving for Spurs with one senior appearance to his name.

Manager Antonio Conte might not have Soonsup-Bell in his immediate plans, but it sounds as though the youngster is already impressing for the youth side.

Indeed, when talking on his YouTube channel, Gold explained: “The Under-21s won their third game in a row at the weekend. Romaine Mundle scored twice, Yago Santiago [scored the other]. They won 3-1 against Brighton.

What does Soonsup-Bell’s arrival mean for Spurs?

Before joining Tottenham in January, Soonsup-Bell had spent most of the season playing in the Chelsea academy setup and had scored two goals and provided one assist in just 205 minutes of Premier League 2 action.

Last term, he made his senior debut for the Blues, playing 45 minutes in a Carabao Cup tie against Brentford as his side won 2-0. With all that in mind, it’s clear to see the potential the 19-year-old has to go on and prove himself at the highest level.

Of course, Harry Kane is the main man at Spurs but they could do with a top talent to come in and help provide some depth for that position up front.

It’s early days yet but if Soonsup-Bell can keep impressing for the U21s, then perhaps he’ll get his chance to shine in the first team at some point in the future.

He certainly looks like someone to keep an eye out for.
