Kyle Walker is too old for this list; too good not to mention
A few players are very much a part of both Spurs' present and their future, while not making our cutoff of 21 years old.
Kyle Walker (23)
Spurs supporters received some excellent news when Kyle Walker signed a contract extension with the club last month. The extension will keep the pacey, exciting full-back at White Hart Lane through the 2018-19 season. He's a fixture both for Tottenham and for England, with nine senior squad caps already to his name.
Vlad Chiriches (23)
This recent addition (a member of this summer's Baldini Seven), the Romanian defender is already proving his worth in a Lilywhite shirt. His defensive skills and cheeky ball control have been on display in Tottenham's Europa League matches this season.
Lewis Holtby (23)
Holtby, formerly the captain of the Germany U21 team, has picked up six assists over five matches in Europa League and League Cup play. He's a true box-to-box midfielder, setting up goals in the attacking half and displaying an excellent work rate on defense.
Danny Rose (23)
While currently injured, Rose showed such skill on loan at Sunderland last season that he supplanted former choice left-back Benoit Assou-Ekotto to be Andre Villas-Boas' favorite for the position. When he returns healthy, he may find himself as second choice, since Jan Vertonghen has been taking left-back duties in light of Michael Dawson and Vlad Chiriches playing excellent defense at center.
Andros Townsend (22)
What can be said about the man of the month of October? Scoring goals for club and country, this incredibly fast-paced winger is growing into his skills nicely, and should continue to advance in the coming years. Like Walker, Townsend has just signed a contract extension with Tottenham, which will keep him at the Lane through the 2017-18 season.
