LUKE Amos returns to W12 following a year-long loan spell here in 2019/20 which saw the midfielder enjoy plenty of game-time with the R’s, making 35 appearances in all competitions and scoring two goals.
Of course, the 23-year-old moves from Tottenham Hotspur, on a permanent basis this time around. He first joined the Lilywhites at the age of just nine.
Amos represented England at Under-18 level before joining Southend United on loan for the second half of the 2016/17 campaign for his first experience of senior football.
Aged 19 at the time, Luke made three appearances in League One for the Shrimpers while also representing Tottenham’s Under-23s in Premier League 2 during that season, starting 14 games with many of them as captain.
After making 15 starts across all competitions for Spurs’ Under-23s in the opening months of 2017/18, Amos joined Stevenage on loan in January 2018 – featuring 16 times for the League Two side, and scoring twice.
As part of his continued progress, Hertfordshire-born Luke joined Tottenham’s first-team squad for their USA tour ahead of the 2018/19 season, and he made his Premier League bow in their 2-1 win at Newcastle United on the opening day of that campaign.
However, just a month later – in September 2018 – Amos ruptured his anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee while playing for Spurs’ Under-23s against Blackburn. That cruelly ruled him out of action for the rest of the season but, equally, paved the way for this eventual permanent switch across the capital.
Welcome back, Luke!
