Tottenham Hotspur talent Malachi Fagan-Walcott has sent a message to Dundee after his spell at Dens Park was brought to a premature end.

Manager James McPake brought the 19-year-old to Tayside in the winter transfer window as he bolstered his defensive options with the centre-back. Jose Mourinho handed him his Tottenham Hotspur debut in the Champions League against RB Leipzig last season.

In his second start for Dundee against Arbroath, the teenage defender was substituted with what McPake thought was only a minor bump. But he confirmed prior to the Dee’s 3-0 win over Alloa on Friday that the Tottenham Hotspur loanee was to head back down south after a ‘severe’ hamstring/tendon issue.

Fagan-Walcott has now sent his thanks to Dundee via social media after the Spurs talent’s short spell in the Scottish Championship: “Due to an unfortunate injury my time at Dundee has come to an end. I want to say a big thank you to Dundee for having me at there club and I hope them the best for the rest of the season.”
