Tottenham have reportedly made a late move to scupper George Green's proposed transfer to Everton.
It looked as though the Bradford City teenager was set to secure a £2 million move to Goodison Park but, it has been claimed, this is now in doubt.
According to The Mirror, Spurs chairman Daniel Levy has approached the Bantams regarding the potential signing of the 15-year-old and is willing to offer more cash upfront than Everton.
Green played for Spurs in a behind closed-doors youth game last week and immediately displayed his potential by scoring a hat-trick.
A versatile midfielder - who can also operate as a forward - Green is being tipped to become one of the biggest stars in the country.
He has even seen himself compared to Manchester United striker Wayne Rooney and former Spurs star Paul Gascoigne by Bradford's head of football development Archie Christie.
Along with Spurs and Everton, German giants Bayern Munich are also said to have been monitoring the Dewsbury-born schoolboy.
