Tim Sherwood is confident Tottenham Hotspur have a bright future thanks to the promising talent coming through at White Hart Lane.

The Spurs boss spoke of his belief in club’s up-and-coming stars when questioned about his plans for the north London club in the summer.

You’ve got to put them in with the right characters and the experienced players who want to give them boys the time to help them come on

The Tottenham manager, whose job is being courted by Louis van Gaal, has already placed his faith in 19-year-old Nabil Bentaleb since replacing Andre Villas-Boas.

And Sherwood hopes to marry Tottenham’s young talent with some experienced signings in the summer as the 45-year-old bids to give Spurs a sense of identity.

“I still believe you haven’t see a few of the young players we have, no-one’s seen them on the stage yet because it’s not been the right time to bring them in. Perhaps they’re not here, they might be on loan elsewhere,” Sherwood said.

“They can only be as good as the experienced players around them because they will nurture them and bring them on.

“I always say I’d never let my kids get babysat by someone who is going to teach them bad things. That’s exactly the same on the football field.

“You’ve got to put them in with the right characters and the experienced players who want to give them boys the time to help them come on.

“That’s what I’ll be looking to do.”

Sherwood added that Hull City midfielder Jake Livermore and Queens Park Rangers winger Tom Carroll have a future when their respective loans end.

“Yeah they’re both good players. Jake’s had a good season at Hull. Tom Carroll is certainly one who will come back into the squad next season because he’s good enough for Tottenham,” added Sherwood.
