Spurs sign pre-contract agreement with Nigerian 16-year old Musa Yahaya, dubbed the ‘New Iniesta’

Spurs kept this one nice and quiet!

According to All Nigeria Soccer and several other concurring sources, Tottenham have signed a pre-contract agreement with Nigerian wonderkid Musa Yahaya, dubbed ‘the new Iniesta’ in African football circles (probably a smidgen of an exaggeration!).

As he’s only 16 and has yet to be issued with a work permit, Spurs have shipped Yahaya out to Celta Vigo on loan, where he’ll remain until his 18th birthday.

If Spurs can arrange a work permit for Yahaya with the British Home Office, he will sign a four – year contract with the London club, again according to All Nigerian Soccer.
