While Tottenham Hotspur is still figuring out its senior squad for the upcoming season, there is plenty of action among the youth players at the organization. With Oliver Skipp set to go out on loan to Norwich City and Armando Shashoua moving permanently to Spain, Luke Amos is the third academy product this morning to be moving away from the club, joining Queens Park Rangers on a permanent transfer.
Amos joined the Tottenham youth system in 2006 and spent the next 10 years with the club. He then experienced a series of loans to Southend United, Stevenage, and most recently QPR, with whom he spent the entire 2019/20 season. The young midfielder made 35 appearances with QPR and apparently did enough to warrant a full-time position with the squad.
The official details of the move have not been released, but per Charlie Eccleshare of The Athletic, it sounds like there will be plenty of incentives included in the deal, as well as a sell-on clause. This makes sense for a young player without a big track record, allowing for both sides to benefit depending on how his career plays out.
Move from #THFC to QPR will be confirmed in next day or so. Appeal of continuing to work with Mark Warburton and joining club he knows big factors (esp as he gets on v well with the squad).— Charlie Eccleshare (@CDEccleshare) August 17, 2020
Fee tbc but will be heavily incentivised - based on appearances etc and with sell-on.
Amos made just one appearance for Spurs, playing the final minutes as a substitute against Newcastle United in the opening match of the 2018/19 campaign.
