Spurs keen as Crystal Palace whizkid Francis Baptiste hits 5 for U18s

Crystal Palace whizkid Francis Baptiste hit five goals in the U18s 7-0 rout of Barnsley.

Before today Barnsley had conceded just six goals in four games, but they were hammered by a rampant Palace.

Baptiste, rumoured to be interesting Tottenham Hotspur last month, has been on the Palace books since the age of 12, says the Croydon Advertiser.

He made his U18 debut in January this year and promptly scored a hat-trick later that month.
