Goalkeeper Isak Solberg has confirmed on Instagram that he has put pen to paper on a new Tottenham Hotspur contract, which are his first professional terms after initially joining the club last summer on a youth deal.
Solberg, 17, joined Spurs after numerous trials from Norwegian side Byrne in 2019 – and he has since been a part of Tottenham’s Under-18 side during the 2019-20 campaign.
Football London claim that Solberg – who has caps for Norway’s Under-16 side – signed a three-year deal at Spurs. For the first two years, he would be a on a youth deal, and it would then be permanent for the final season.
However, Solberg has now confirmed on Instagram that he has already signed professional terms with head of academy John McDermott seemingly deciding to tie him down to a pro deal now.
Going forward, Solberg has enormous competition as he looks to become a regular for the Under-18’s and then break into the second string. Michel Vorm is expected to leave the club at the end of the season.
But that still leaves Hugo Lloris, Paulo Gazzaniga, Alfie Whiteman, Jonathan De Bie, Joshua Oluwayemi and Brandon Austin are all above Solberg in the goalkeeping pecking order at Spurs.
However, the new contract for the 6ft 3in goalkeeper is obviously a huge step in the right direction for Solberg and he will be hoping to break into the Under-23 side over the course of the next season.
