When Will Vuskovic Arrive at Spurs?
Fabrizio Romano has confirmed that Tottenham have now completed an agreement to sign Hadjuk Split defender Luka Vuskovic and that it is now a “done deal” as well. He adds that the agreement is now sealed on both the player and club sides and he will be joining the Lilywhites in the future.
However, the journalist has also revealed when exactly the 16-year-old centre-back will be joining his new team and it won’t be in the upcoming January transfer window. He states that Vuskovic will be joining the Lilywhites in 2025, which means he’ll continue his development at the Croatian club for the time being. A reason why Spurs have allowed him to stay with his current side for such a long time is that he won’t be allowed to play in England until he is 18 years old.
It’s quite clear that Postecoglou only sees the teenager as one for the future and has no immediate plans to use him at all. Vuskovic, who is already playing for Split’s senior team at such a young age, reportedly rejected interest from other clubs to join up with the North London team.

What Can Vuskovic Bring to Tottenham?
The 16-year-old is already quite an intimidating centre-back, standing at an impressive 6’4″ at such a young age and producing some admirable performances for Hadjuk Split’s senior team. The teenager has already made 11 appearances for the Croatian side at the professional level and even scored a goal in that.

The centre-back has even been hailed as “unstoppable” for his impressive performances at the senior level and seemingly did enough to convince Tottenham’s scouts to recommend him to the management.
