‘Delighted’: Some Spurs fans react to exciting update on talent ‘similar’ to Marcus Edwards

A number of Tottenham Hotspur fans have taken to Twitter to congratulate Dilan Markanday after the 19-year-old penned a new contract at Spurs.

Markanday has come through the ranks at Tottenham and is currently playing for the Under-23s, having made nine appearances and scoring once this season.

The teenager also scored in the first ever game at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, netting the third for the club’s Under-18s in a 3-1 win over Southampton U18s.

As per the Spurs website, Markanday is “a clever attacking midfielder” who is normally deployed on the right wing, though he can play on the left and as a No. 10.

He was a key member of the side that finished as runners-up in the Under-18 Premier League in 2018-19, playing in more games in that competition – 21 of our 22 – than any other player and scoring 11 goals.

Markanday was also named “Best Overseas Player” at the Under-17 Borgaro Maggioni Righi tournament in Italy over the Easter weekend in 2018, and made his Under-23s debut as a substitute in a Premier League 2 final-day defeat to Manchester City.

Tottenham’s academy has been in fine form in recent years and the signature of another talented youngster has been celebrated by the Spurs fanbase.

Here is some of the reaction on social media:
