After scoring a brilliant solo effort for Port Vale, Alfie Devine has said that he knows Ange Postecoglou is keeping a close eye on his development at the League One side.

Devine wrote his name into the history books on Tuesday, with his goal helping Port Vale overcome Mansfield Town in the fourth round of the Carabao Cup, with the Valiants booking their place in the quarterfinal of the competition for the first time in their history.

The 19-year-old’s striker demonstrated just why he is so highly thought of at Spurs, with the youngster picking up the ball in his own half and driving forward through the heart of midfield before placing the ball into the far corner from more than 25 yards out.

It was the second time in as many games that the on-loan Spurs youngster has found the back of the net, and he admitted after the game that he is thoroughly enjoying his time at Vale Park.

Devine told BBC’s Football Daily: “Spoke to a few staff at Tottenham, I know Ange is keeping a lookout on how I’m doing and stuff. But I just take every game as it comes and then see what happens from there.”

Devine is just the sort of player that Ange would love working with, given how brave and direct the teenager is in possession. If the midfielder continues impressing at Port Vale this season, he could potentially even have a prominent first-team role at Spurs as early as next campaign.
