Report: Swansea interested in Tottenham youngster Oakley-Boothe

Swansea City are reportedly keen on snapping up talented Tottenham Hotspur youngster Tashan Oakley-Boothe.

According to The Daily Mail, Swans boss Steve Cooper is keen to bring the starlet to the Liberty Stadium having managed him during his time in charge of the England U17s.

Oakley-Boothe was a key player for Cooper as he guided the Young Lions to victory at the World Cup in 2017, and it would appear Cooper – appointed by the club last month – is ready to work with him once again.

First-team opportunities are limited at Spurs at the moment, with the club boasting midfield options such as Harry Winks, Eric Dier, Christian Eriksen, Moussa Sissoko, Erik Lamela, Oliver Skipp and of course, new signing Tanguy Ndombele.

 

There has also been talk of Dani Ceballos joining the club, meaning an exit could well be on the cards for Oakley-Boothe.

The pair are obviously already familiar and playing regularly in the Championship can help the teenager to prepare for potential life as a Premier League player.

The likes of Tom Carroll and Cameron Carter-Vickers have both move there on loan in recent years, with the former turning his move permanent, so it would be unsurprising to see Spurs perhaps allow Oakley-Boothe to join on a temporary basis.
