Talented midfielder of Nigerian descent agrees new deal with Tottenham amid Man Utd interest 

English Premier League giants Manchester United have suffered a blow in their pursuit of Callum Olusesi with the promising midfielder of Nigerian descent agreeing a new deal with Tottenham Hotspur. 


Last week, Football Insider reported that Tottenham Hotspur were fighting to keep hold of Olusesi amid transfer interest from Manchester United and three other English clubs in the shape of Newcastle United, Brighton & Hove and Leeds United. 


Italian transfer market guru Fabrizio Romano has reported that Tottenham have been able to keep the talented midfielder Callum Olusesi  with a new deal agreed despite strong interest from multiple English clubs.


It is believed that Olusesi will start the 2023-2024 season as a first-year scholar at Tottenham Hotspur before going professional on his seventeenth birthday with the two agreements keeping him at the club until at least June 30, 2026.


Olusesi is the third teenager of Nigerian descent to have agreed a scholarship with Tottenham ahead of next season, following in the footsteps of central defenders Timi Adekunle and Theo Adelusi.


In his final season as a schoolboy, the 2007-born player made his debuts in the UEFA Youth League, U18 Premier League and U18 Premier League Cup, scoring three goals. 


Olusesi helped Tottenham Hotspur to win both the U17 and U18 Premier League Cup in the recently concluded season, featuring in the showpiece against Nottingham Forest and Aston Villa respectively.
