Tottenham transfer news: Adrian Blake to snub Watford and England as Jamaica plot call-up
Tottenham-linked youngster Adrian Blake looks set to depart Watford after turning down the latest contract offer.
The 17-year-old forward is now mulling over his options for both club and country while boasting interest from a host of Premier League clubs and several overseas.
The Islington-born left winger faces a decision to prioritise a fast route into a first team or whether to join one of English football’s top academies.
He is one of the most talented youngsters to come through the Hornets academy in recent years but has not been able to get into England’s Under-18s side despite making three senior appearances at Watford this season.
The Jamaican Football Federation (JFF) are also ready to hijack the English talent and call him up for a full senior cap in the upcoming international break.
The Reggae Boyz have already called up Chelsea youngster Omari Hutchinson as they look to poach some of the best young talent from England.
Their aim is to reach the 2026 World Cup in the United States, Canada and Mexico. Jamaica next face the USA and Nicaragua in Gold Cup matches in June.
As first revealed by Standard Sport, Watford are also set to lose youth full back Harry Amass to Manchester United.
