UNITED have signed highly-rated young striker Shaquile Coulthirst from Tottenham Hotspur in a loan move that will run to the end of the season.
The Gulls moved quickly to beat yesterday’s transfer deadline after deciding not to renew the loan deal with Enoch Showunmi from Notts County.
Shaquile arrives at Plainmoor with a terrific reputation as a dangerous goal-scorer and he came to prominence with a stunning hat-trick against Barcelona in a youth competition.
The 19 year-old enjoyed a brief loan spell at Leyton Orient earlier this season, scoring once in two appearances and he has the same scoring record for England Under-19s.
Shaq made his debut for Tottenham in the UEFA Europa League this season and will be available for selection in tomorrow’s massive game at Southend.
