Tottenham and West Ham eying Championship starlet

Tottenham and West Ham have registered an interest in Charlton starlet Diego Poyet, son of Sunderland boss Gus, according to the Express.

The midfielder has established himself as a regular in the heart of the Charlton midfield this season, and impressed for the Addicks on their run to the FA Cup quarter finals.

The Premier League trio are keeping an eye on the 18-year-old, although reports suggest they may have to fight off Barcelona and Inter Milan for his signature.

Charlton will struggle to keep hold of the England Under-17 international, with relegation from the Championship looking likely.

They currently occupy bottom spot in the table, three points behind Millwall in 21st, with the positive being that they hold four games in hand due to their FA Cup exploits.

Never-the-less, Poyet looks likely to depart in the summer, as his contract is set to expire at the end of the season, and there has been no mention of a new deal.

Charlton also face the prospect of losing goalkeeper Ben Hamer, who has also been linked with a move to the Premier League in the summer.
