Spurs set to sign 'new Bale' - Reports

Reports today have flooded in claiming Spurs have won the race to bring in Crawley's 18 year old left winger Alex Attrill, regarded as the 'new Bale' by the Crawley Observer and Crawley News. The youth player, who was due to start university in September and can be found on the popular computer game FM 11 (before he's released from the game after about a month), had been closely monitored by a number of clubs including big boys Luton, Wrexham and Oxford United, plus a number of 6 a side teams. Despite strong interest, it is thought the opportunity to sit on the bench to watch Spurs play every week was an opportunity he couldn't say no to.

"I can't believe it!" The player told the Crawley News. "I didn't even make the first team at Crawley and thought my career had finished before it started"

"I'm gonna have to tell the boys that I'll have to give the 6 a side a miss in the summer" he added.

Clearly a shy boy with few words. Although Ian Broomfield, who reportedly spotted Attrill just having a kick about in the local park whilst visiting his mother, definitely feels that Attrill could add something to the side and expects him to be challenging for a place in the first team by the young age of 26-27. He's that good. Attrill's current striker rate of 2 goals in 22 appearances for Crawley's development squad and 1 goal in 11 for the under 18's further show he'd bring a real goal threat to North London.

Another exciting prospect that could be thrown into the first team within just 10 years time. We may not finish in that lucrative 4th spot this season, but atleast this signing is something to look forward to.

Oh, and happy 1st April.
