Former Arsenal defender Steve Morrow in the running to become Tottenham academy director

Former Arsenal defender Steve Morrow is on the shortlist to become Tottenham's next academy chief.

Morrow has developed a reputation as one of the best academy administrators in the country during his time at Arsenal, helping bring through the likes of Alex Iwobi, Eddie Nketiah, Reiss Nelson and Bukayo Saka, to name but four.
