Portsmouth manager Danny Cowley is delighted to have signed Dane Scarlett from Antonio Conte’s Tottenham Hotspur in the summer transfer window, as quoted on the club’s official website.

As announced on Portsmouth’s official website, the League One club have signed 18-year-old forward Scarlett on a season-long loan deal from Premier League outfit Tottenham.

This is the first time that the England Under-19 international forward has left Tottenham on loan.

Portsmouth boss Cowley has raved about Scarlett, and believes that he is a gem who can do great things in the future.

Cowley told Portsmouth’s office website abut Scarlett: “We’re delighted to have Dane with us and we’re really appreciative of Tottenham for trusting us to look after one of their young players.

“He spent the whole of last season with the first team and featured in some of their European fixtures, training every day with world class players.

“He’s a boy who has the world at his feet and comes here after a brilliant summer with England, playing a big part in that success.

“There’s an intelligence beyond his years – both in and out of possession – with the timing of his runs and the movement that allows him to win space behind defenders.

“We think those qualities will carry a real threat and add a different dimension to our team, while against the ball he has an unbelievable work ethic.

“Dane has an infectious energy and I know that the staff at both Tottenham and the England set-up think the world of him.

“This is his first loan and so it won’t be easy because it’s a new experience, but we’re there to support him, like we have done with many young players in the past.

“We’re really looking forward to working with Dane, who’s an outstanding finisher with both feet and his head. He has a ruthlessness that centre-forwards need.”

A Spurs gem

Danny Cowley’s comments on Dane Scarlett show how highly the Tottenham-owned forward is rated in the football community.

The 18-year-old has already played a handful of matches for the Tottenham first team.

Portsmouth are a big club, and playing in League One on a regular basis would help the teenager get better and further his game.

Now, of course, we have to let Scarlett develop and progress at his own pace and not rush him.

It is also important for the Tottenham-owned forward to keep his feet on the ground and continue to work hard.
