Brentford manager Mark Warburton says Alex Pritchard is "nailed on" to make a name for himself upon his return to Premier League club Tottenham Hotspur.

The 21-year-old has featured in all of the Bees' 36 domestic matches, with the club locked on 66 points along with three other sides at the top of the Championship.

Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino has formerly promoted Harry Kane and Ryan Mason to the first team from the club's academy this season to great success and Warburton expects Pritchard to became the latest player to flourish.

"He can dominate a football," said Warburton. "Alex is at his best with the ball at his feet.

"He sees a pass. He's the best player I've seen in this division, certainly, to receive the ball on the half-turn at pace.

"Left or right side, he has the ability to take it on the half-turn and for us, how we play, that hurts the opposition.

"Technically he's outstanding. For me, Pritch is nailed on Premier League. I'd never be disrespectful enough to speak about what Spurs should do or could do with him.

"But in my opinion – and I'm a Spurs fan, by the way – I think he is more than good enough to go and positively impact their playing squad."

The season-long loan stint at Brentford represents the third spell away from Spurs with Pritchard having already spent time with Peterborough United and Swindon Town during the previous campaign.

Kane and Mason's promotion into the first team comes amid increased success for Tottenham's youth teams, with the Under-21's – a team including Pritchard – reaching the final of the Premier League Development division in the 2012/13 season.

This term, Tottenham's youngsters are on the brink of their first FA Youth Cup final appearance for 20 years after taking a two-goal lead over Chelsea in the first leg of their semi-final ahead of the return match at Stamford Bridge.
