Barclays Premiership side Tottenham Hotspur signed Zambia’s brilliant young left-back Emmanuel Mbola in a £1 million deal on Tuesday , the UK Mirror has reported. (See article on www.mirrorfootball.co.uk )

The 16-year-old defender has already clocked up a remarkable 20 caps for his country and was the youngest player in the recent Africa Cup of Nations.

Mbola, who plays for Armenian side Yerevan, will probably be sent to a club on the continent for first-team experience next season, although he already qualifies for a European work permit.

Spurs beat West Ham to the teenager’s signature and see him as a star of the future.
