Swansea City manager Steve Cooper wants Tashan Oakley-Boothe, according to The Daily Mail and if this was to come off it would be a great move for the 19-year-old.

Oakley-Boothe achieved what must be the greatest moment of his career so far under Cooper, as they won the U17 World Cup together two years ago – with the Spurs teenager starting every game but one.

However, he has only managed one competitive contribution for Spurs, which came in the form of a substitute appearance against Burnley in 2017.

So with one year left on his contract, the Swans, as well as the likes of Leeds United, Huddersfield Town and Derby County are interested in signing the teenager.

Spurs should be doing all they can to ensure he commits his future to the club, as he is clearly a talented player, though a loan move to one of the aforementioned clubs – especially Swansea – should definitely be kept on the cards.

He is still only 19-year-old and is arguably one of the most talented Englishmen at his age in his position – he was even included in the shortlist for Golden Boy.

While it would be good to see him go out and get some first-team experience at Championship level, that should only be on a temporary basis.

If he can go away and apply what he learns back at Spurs, there is every chance he could eventually end up in Mauricio Pochettino’s first-team plans.
