Tottenham have announced the signing of young defender Anton Blackwood from Arsenal. Blackwood, who has previously spent time with Northampton, figured for the Gunners as they won the Premier Academy League and FA Youth Cup last season. He has now linked up with Spurs and will hope to eventually break into Harry Redknapp's first team. Sam Cox and Steven Caulker, meanwhile, have put pen-to-paper on their first professional contracts with Tottenham. Cox is a versatile performer who can play in midfield and defence, while Caulker is an up-and-coming centre-back. Young goalkeeper Lee Butcher, who has spent time on loan at Grays and St Albans, has also signed a one-year contract.
