Tottenham Hotspur have signed former Real Madrid trainee Eduard Husinec on a trial basis.

Husinec is a 17 year old Croatian central defender, who spent time training with Real Madrid last season.

The defender started his playing career at NK Hrvatski Dragovoljac and played in Tottenham’s victory over Celtic at Spurs’ Chigwell headquarters last night.

Manager Harry Redknapp is facing a minor injury crisis, with Ledley King and William Gallas out and Michael Dawson only returning to full fitness.

The 17 year old would be unlikely to challenge for a first team place in the short-term, however.
