£2M on a 15 year old

Tottenham have signed midfield prospect Dean Parrett from Rangers in a £2million deal.

Parrett, 15, attracted interest from Chelsea but opted for a move to White Hart Lane. The deal was completed on Wednesday night following several weeks of negotiations.

The England youth international is rated as one of the best young players in the country.

Rangers had planned to give Parrett his first-team debut as a substitute later this season if safety in the Championship was secure.

That would have made him the youngest ever player to turn out for QPR, beating Frank Sibley’s longstanding record

We'll have to wait a while before getting excited about this lad. Yet another one for the future. Must be pretty decent to fork out two million. No word on Giles Barnes yet.......
