Former Tottenham Hotspur captain Gary Mabbutt has told Football FanCast that Dane Scarlett can push on and become a first-team player in north London.
The teenager has signed his first professional contract at the club, which runs until 2023.
The deal had been in place but Scarlett could not officially formalise his future until he turned 17.
The striker has been in brilliant form for the youth squads, scoring 15 goals in 13 games for the Under-18s in their Premier League this season.
An England U16 international, who scored a brace on his debut, he has made a total of 22 appearances for the development squads, scoring 23 goals.
He has also played three times for the senior squad, totalling 17 minutes in the Europa League and a minute in the Premier League, even laying on an assist in the 4-0 win over Wolfsberger.
Mabbutt believes that he can grow and develop during his time at Tottenham, and thinks he will be a fixture in the first-team for some time to come.
Asked about his new contract, he told FFC: “Every level he’s played at for us, his development is continuing at a very high level.
“He’s got the attitude, he’s got the character, the determination. And as far as his abilities, I think they’re unquestionable.
“So I’m delighted to see him getting his first full contract. And he’s a player that will be pushing to get through to that first team level on a consistent basis.”
