He may never be fully able to past the fact that he's a ringer for Gareth Bale, but Kenneth McEvoy will at least get a chance to try and do that away from Spurs. The now 21 year old looked to be on the verge of a first team breakthrough under Andre Villas Boas a couple of years ago. However, a number of loan moves failed to work out as desired and the first team door was gradually closed.
The Waterford man found himself under contract with Spurs but with little to no chance of making a name for himself. The vast majority of players in that situation tend to wind down their contract and take the loan moves as they come. McEvoy however, has been slightly more proactive and on Sunday he released a statement on twitter confirming that he had been released from his contract after Spurs 'finally' agreed to let him go.
McEvoy has most recently been on loan at York City in League 2. Jackie McNamara's side are thought to be keen on making the deal permanent and judging by the above statement, the Ireland under 21 international would be delighted to just be able to make a name for himself in a first team plan somewhere.
With that in mind though, we can't help but wonder if there's a couple of League of Ireland clubs thinking of making a push for the attacking midfielder. With York sitting rock bottom of League 2, it may be an attractive option for McEvoy particularly after Richie Towell showed just what a positive career move it can be.
