Spurs trial DC United starlet

The Honduras international has departed for England and will link

up with Spurs’ first-team squad on Monday. The 18-year-old, who was

named the 2010 MLS Rookie of the Year, won his first international

cap in September against Colombia. DCU general manager Dave Kasper

is delighted one of the club’s rising talents will enhance his game

abroad and he is looking forward to having him back at RFK Stadium

an improved player. “We are pleased to finalise Andy’s stay with

Tottenham,” Kasper commented on the club’s official website. “I

think this experience will be tremendous for him. He will come away

from this as a better player, and we look forward to having him

back with us shortly. “It’s great for our players to get into a

different environment and have a different experience. We feel it’s

good for their continued development. “It’s certainly aligned with

the philosophy that Jurgen Klinsmann has made public, which is that

our offseason is too long and our players need to continue

training.”
