Tottenham reportedly have big plans for Dennis Cirkin, Jose Mourinho confirmed he is a fan

The talented teenager can play in a number of different positions.

Tottenham Hotspur reportedly have big plans for talented young left-back Dennis Cirkin, according to a report.

Spurs are likely to be one of the Premier League’s busier clubs in the next transfer window as the club clearly need to be revamped. 

The full-back positions, in particular, are very weak at Tottenham after Kieran Trippier and Danny Rose’s respective departures. 

So a left-back is likely to be targeted, with Ben Davies struggling to stay fit and Ryan Sessegnon seen as an attacking option.

But Football.London suggests that the 18-year-old Cirkin is also an option. They suggest he is ‘one for the future’ at Tottenham, perhaps suggesting he might be in line for a Tottenham first-team chance going forward.


Cirkin signed a first professional deal with Tottenham in November. The same week, Tottenham manager Jose Mourinho confirmed that Cirkin was set to be more involved in the Tottenham first-team going forward, as relayed by Goal. 

“I watched on video our youth team playing in the Champions League, and we also have [Dennis Cirkin]. 

“OK, he’s 17 but he’s a kid with a lot of quality, and I look forward to bringing him to train with us, and to help his development.”

The Dublin-born star has played 17 times for Spurs’ youth teams this season in a variety of different positions. Left-back appears his preferred position, but he has also played at centre-back, holding midfield and even at right-wing. 

Clearly, there is a player with immense talent here and Mourinho might just have Cirkin in mind as a potential left-back option for next season.
