Nigerian teenager set for Tottenham Premier League debut

05 August 2015, 16:01

London - Anglo-Nigerian youngster Dele Alli is set to make his debut for Tottenham Hotspur in the Premier League after impressing in their pre-season friendly against Real Madrid in Munich on Tuesday.

The 19-year old who only joined Tottenham from MK Dons at the start of this season, having been loaned back to the Dons where he was signed from in January, had earlier been tipped to go out on loan to garner more experience, but reports from White Hart Lane are that Spurs manager Mauricio Pochettino is ready to give him his Premier League debut this season.

Despite losing 2-0 to Real Madrid, Alli was impressive in the midfield for Spurs, the highlight being a cheeky nutmeg of former Tottenham Hotspur midfielder, Luca Modric.

Spurs begin their 2015/2016 season with a huge game against Manchester United at Old Trafford.

19-year old Alli has featured for the England U15's, U16's, U17's and U18's, but remains eligible for Nigeria's Super Eagles as he's yet to play for the Three Lions.

He qualifies to play for Nigeria through his father who is a Nigerian.
