Tottenham have signed teenage midfielder Shilow Tracey from Ebbsfleet United.
The 17-year-old was invited for a trial in October and travelled with the club's under-18s to play at the IMG Cup in Florida last month.
Tracey scored twice in victories over Jacksonville Armada and Baltimore Celtic, leaving Spurs suitably impressed to open talks with Ebbsfleet over a permanent move, and he is now set to continue his development at the White Hart Lane club.
The young midfielder is comfortable playing either in a central role or further forward behind a striker, although he has only featured once for Ebbsfleet's first team.
Tracey will join Tottenham's academy under the direction of h ead of player development John McDermott.
