Nigerian Wonderkid Inks New Deal With Tottenham Hotspur
Nigerian wonderkid Joshua Oluwayemi has taken to social media to announce that he has penned a professional contract with English Premier League side Tottenham Hotspur.

The goalkeeper was offered a new deal at the end of last season and ended speculation surrounding his future by committing his future to the North London club until June 2021.

Born in London, Oluwayemi has racked up 19 appearances in the U18 Premier League since his debut against Leicester City in August 2017, posting nine shutouts.

The 18-year-old featured in the U18 Premier League Cup and FA Youth Cup last season.

Although Oluwayemi has played internationally for England's U15 and U16 national teams, he has pledged his international future to Nigeria.

He comes from a family of goalkeepers as his father, Abiodun Ogunyemi, was a goalkeeper for Ogun State University and attended Federal Government College Odogbolu, while his sibling, Tobi is also a goalkeeper at Tottenham Hotspur.
