Tottenham Hotspur FC transfer news: Starlet Keanan Bennetts close to Bundesliga move
Tottenham starlet Keanan Bennetts celebrates scoring against Chelsea
Tottenham Hotspur starlet Keanan Bennetts is on the verge of signing for Borussia Monchengladbach, according to reports.
The 19-year-old left-sided player, capable of being employed as a full-back or as a winger, has done well in the Spurs academy this year but been unable to push for a first-team slot.
Renowned for scoring impressive goals and armed with an excellent ability at set-pieces, it’s unsurprising he’s a wanted talent, and the fact he has played for Germany at youth level has helped open up a route to the Bundesliga.

He qualifies for the nation through his mother, while he is also represented by a German sports agency called SportsTotal.
Having signed a new contract with Tottenham in December, the club will be entitled to a fee for the player, reportedly around £2million, and will not lose him for a tribunal fee, meanwhile Daniel Levy is likely to push for a buy-back clause in the deal.
What a way to equalise! The roulette… The chop… The finish!
