Spurs to offer deal to TV star
Tottenham are scouting a child TV star.
The 11-year-old from Hackney, east London is already a prolific striker for Leyton Orient's under-12s team and trains at the club's school of excellence.
William's on-the-pitch skills have attracted the interest of his favourite club, Tottenham Hotspur, who sent a scout to watch him play at a recent tournament.
In an interview with Radio Times, he said: "It's a toss-up between being an actor and a footballer.
"Filming is really time-consuming and I'm lucky we made Oliver Twist during the summer, outside the football season.
"It's a great opportunity for me, having been scouted by Spurs but there's no way I could combine the two things.
"If you can't make practice, you lose your place in the team."
