Video highlights of young Croatian defender linked to Tottenham Hotspur

Who is Tin Jedvaj? He's a kid who looks pretty sweet on YouTube.

I don't get to see any of the Croatian league, but I am vaguely familiar with 17-year-old center back Tin Jedvaj, who made his professional debut for Dinamo Zagreb in 2013. He's a pretty highly touted prospect who has been linked to Arsenal and AC Milan, but looked set to sign for Roma. Of course, Roma's old director of football is now our director of football. You know what that means.

Our favorite Italian rumor site TuttoMercatoWeb passes along some information from the sometimes very right, sometimes full of it Gianluca Di Marzio.

Gianluca Di Marzio ha rivelato le ultime su Tin Jedvaj, difensore croato della Dinamo Zagreb che nei giorni scorsi sembrava essere vicinissimo alla Roma e che ora invece potrebbe finire al Tottenham.

He was close to signing for Roma, but could instead end up at Tottenham. Awwww yeah.

I'm assuming that you guys aren't sure whether or not you should be excited about this, but this is the internet and that's easily changed. You too can develop your entire opinion on a player off of one really cool YouTube video. I present that YouTube video, where Jedvaj clowns rivals Hajduk Split, a very respectable professional football team.

He's the next Thiago Silva. Sign him up.
