YOU have to take your hat off to Spurs – and Mauricio Pochettino in particular.

Other clubs can take a leaf out of their book.

Tottenham continue to put their faith in youth; players who have come through the ranks and are now being rewarded.

That’s the way it should be. We’ve said it many times here on Zapsportz – why do clubs invest so much in their academies only to ignore the talent produced? And then spend a fortune on foreign imports.

I know that Spurs cashed in on Kyle Walker, who made it clear he wanted to leave. And why wouldn’t you sell an unhappy full back for £45million?

But they are not a selling club in the main – and are not prepared to shell out fortunes on new signings. Unlike many of the top clubs.

I was delighted to read today that, following in the footsteps of the likes of Harry Kane, Dele Ali and Eric Dier, Kyle Walker-Peters has been offered a new contract which runs until 2020.

That’s the way forward with Spurs and I hope they stick with the same concept.

It elevated them to top two last season and might well put them in with a title shout in the current campaign.

So replace Kyle Walker with Kyle-Walker Peters and Spurs are in good hands.

The 20-year-old right-back made his Premier League debut for Spurs in the 2-0 win at Newcastle on the opening day.

A product of Tottenham’s academy, Walker-Peters has represented England at Under-18, Under-19 and Under-20 levels. He is a star in the making.

He helped England beat Venezuela 1-0 in the final of the Under-20 World Cup in South Korea in June.

Kyle tweeted after his excellent debut at Newcastle…

What a day! Premier League debut ✅ 3 points ✅ MOTM ✅ thank you for all the support & messages!
