Palace look to have a real talent on their hands, but reports suggested that Premier League rivals Tottenham were keen to lure him away from Selhurst Park.

However Palace have tied him down to a new long-term contract and hope with further development he will soon be knocking on Alan Pardew’s first-team door.

The teenager showed his class and undoubted potential as he scored five times for the Palace under-18s when they thrashed Barnsley 7-0 last month and Pardew will be relieved the deal is in the bag.
