More Trialists

Robb Heineman continues to give us an inside look at some players that are in camp on trial as preseason kicks off. Yesterday he told us about trialist Julio Cesar Santos, and today he gave us four more names. Two have already been mentioned, the two Trinidad players, Daneil Cyrus and Sheldon Bateau, both defenders. We've been given two new names though, another defender and a winger/forward. Both are younger, and while Butcher may not be set to contribute this year, although Djeziri could potentially contribute this year.

The defender is Englishman, Calum Butcher. Butcher is 19 years old Tottenham youth player. He's yet to appear for Spurs in a league game, but was a substitute in a UEFA Cup game against Shakhtar Donetsk. He also did spend time on loan last season for League Two side Barnet, appearing minimally. Before moving to Spurs, Butcher was in Ipswich and Southend's youth system.

The second is Algerian, Adda Djeziri. Djeziri is a midfielder/forward that has jumped around a bit since turning pro with Boldklubben Frem in Denmark. He spent time with Rangers, Leicester, and Portsmouth. He's most recently found his most success with Vejle Boldklub in Denmark and was last with HB Koge in Denmark. Below is a video of Djeziri in in a reserve match during his time with Portsmouth.

Is Butcher still contracted to Spurs, which would mean if could be a loan or a buy?
