Bryne is just 20km away from Stavanger, the hometown of former Spurs keeper Erik Thorstvedt, who won the FA Cup with the club in 1991.

The Norway youth international has already taken part in two trials with the Lilywhites and after impressing he was handed a contract offer, which will commence as soon as he turns 16 next month.

The report states it is a three-year agreement which will see him be part of the academy set-up for the first two years before he turns professional in the final year and is given a wage increase.

Jim Solbakken, a friend and business partner of Man United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, assisted in the making of the deal.

No transfer fee will have to be paid for the teenager either as he was not officially contracted to a club, although Bryne general manager has  said that his side will be left with some compensation by Spurs, saying the club ‘have been very good’.

Spurs will be hoping their new glovesman lives up to his hype and continues to impress under Spurs’ head of academy John McDermott.
