Tottenham are working with Dutch coach Ton Caanen to build a club network.

Caanen is this week driving partnership talks with Roda JC and reveals plans beyond the Eredivisie.

"Tottenham is looking for clubs to place their young, talented players from England and to gain senior experience.

"I've suggested Roda would be ideal.

"Tottenham have had a few conversations with them and the opinion taken is they'd be an ideal partner," said Caanan.
