Tottenham's new youth model is continuing to pay dividends. Today the club announced via Twitter and its official website that it has signed young goalkeeper Luke McGee to a new contract that will keep him at Spurs until 2019.

An academy graduate, McGee was a mainstay in Spurs' U21 team last season and made the jump this year to third keeper behind Hugo Lloris and Michel Vorm. While he hasn't made his senior team debut yet (to my knowledge... info is a little hard to find on him online), he's made the bench a few times, especially in the Europa League, and had meaningful minutes in Spurs' preseason matches, especially the MLS All-Star game. Obviously Mauricio Pochettino sees something that he likes in the 20-year old keeper.
McGee's signing is the latest in a string of new contracts that have been offered to young Spurs academy players to keep them around. Yesterday, the club extended the contract of 17-year old defender Cameron Carter-Vickers, and new deals have also been offered to Alex Pritchard, Josh Onomah, Harry Winks, and Nabil Bentaleb as Tottenham continues to develop the next generation of Tottenham Hotspur greats out of its own academy.
