David Norris is “surprised” by the pace of Archie Gray’s transfer from Leeds United to Tottenham Hotspur, but says the teenager may have lived to regret his decision had he not moved.

Tottenham overcame the threat of Brentford to tie Gray down to a six-year deal, with an approximate fee of up to £30million plus Joe Rodon enough to turn Leeds’ hand.

Norris is pleased Leeds have been able to recoup a healthy sum for the 18-year-old hotshot, after he initially believed Gray would stay for another year at Elland Road.

Exclusively speaking to MOT Leeds News, the former Whites midfielder said: “I’m surprised. I thought he’d stay one more season, but it’s a massive move and one he can’t really say no to. He’d maybe have regretted it if he didn’t take the opportunity.

“I know Leeds had to raise a certain amount by the end of June, but I envisaged some of the other players like Crysencio Summerville or Willy Gnonto leaving first.

“Leeds are a bigger club than Brentford, but when you’re going between two big clubs in Leeds and Tottenham, it’s a big move and one where I think he’ll progress well.”
