Spurs signing reveals Celtic factor behind £30m move

New Tottenham Hotspur signing Archie Gray has revealed the Celtic factor behind moving to Spurs. The 18-year-old completed a signing from Leeds Utd in a deal worth between £25m-30m, which will also see Joe Rondon go the other way.

Now, Gray has revealed that he is a huge fan of Celtic and that is how he knows Ange Postecoglou.

“It’s a massive project under Ange, and it’s something that I want to be part of. I’m not going to lie to you; I’m a massive Celtic fan, so I love him, and my whole family loves him. I haven’t really said this, to be fair. He’s also a massive factor (in joining Tottenham) because playing under a good manager important for me and I’ve still got loads to learn because I’m only 18.”

Brentford had launched an ambitious bid to take the player on a permanent basis but were pipped to a deal by Ange’s Spurs.

Leeds were left heartbroken by the deal which took their breakthrough talent from them. Their loss is certainly Spurs’ gain as they look to kick on after an impressive debut season from Ange.

Gray is eligible for Scotland and could be tempted north of the border but his trajectory seems to be towards the English National Team.
