New arrivals Yago Falque and Cristian Ceballos are in the Spurs XI squad for Wednesday night's friendly against Kettering Town at Nene Park, former home of Rushden & Diamonds.

New arrivals Yago Falque and Cristian Ceballos are in the Spurs XI squad for Wednesday night's friendly against Kettering Town at Nene Park, the former home of Rushden & Diamonds.

The Spanish youngsters joined us in the summer transfer window.

Yago, an attacking midfielder, arrived on a season-long loan from Juventus having spent last season on loan at Villareal B.

Cristian can also operate as an attacking midfielder or a forward and spent seven years with Barcelona after joining them aged 11.

Technical Co-Ordinator Tim Sherwood has been impressed with both players in training.

"Yago is very tidy, typically Spanish, plays in tight areas very well and looks to play narrow off the right or left-hand side," said Tim. "In fact, he's comfortable anywhere across the midfield.

"Cristian is also an excellent player and we hope to see them play well for us at Kettering."

Yago and Cristian are joined by the four Academy graduates who featured for the first team in the Europa League play-off, second leg against Hearts - Ryan Fredericks, Harry Kane, Tom Carroll and Jake Nicholson.

John Bostock and Dean Parrett, young players also with first-team experience, are also in the squad.

We travel to Nene Park for Jean-Paul Marna's testimonial match, kicking-off at 7.45pm. The French striker has scored 69 goals for the Poppies in 228 appearances.
