Spurs released the news on their official website earlier today, writing: “We are delighted to announce that Dane Scarlett’s first professional contract with the club has now been formalised.”

The forward was eligible for a professional deal after turning 17 on March 24.

The two-year contract was automatically triggered by his recent birthday and Tottenham will be hoping he signs a longer deal soon.

Scarlett made his professional debut in November during a Europa League game with Ludogorets.

At the age of 16 years and 247 days, he became the youngest player in Tottenham’s history to make a senior appearance.

He has also made his Premier League debut – appearing in their 2-0 win against West Bromwich Albion last month.

Jose Mourinho has compared the youngster to Marcus Rashford – a player he got to know well during his time as Manchester United boss.

The former Chelsea manager said: “He is a diamond, a kid with incredible potential.

“I believe next season he will be a first-team squad player because he has a lot of talent.”

Tottenham recently shared a picture from around a decade ago of Gareth Bale posing with a young Scarlett.
