Zeki Fryers was set the challenge of breaking into Tottenham's first team after making his maiden appearance in club colours since moving from Standard Liege.

Fryers helped Spurs' development squad to a 4-0 win over Charlton on Tuesday, having completed a switch to White Hart Lane that angered Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson. The 19-year-old had been on trial with Tottenham in the summer but joined Standard Liege after Spurs failed to reach an agreement with United.

Tim Sherwood, Tottenham's head of football development, watched Fryers in action and he believes the defender has a promising future. "Zeki is fully aware that he's a long way away from being ready for Tottenham Hotspur's first team," Sherwood told the club's website thfc.com.
