If he added a little bit of trickery along with his pace he would be deadly. Right now he seems to be a one trick pony, it's a good trick though.

Indeed hes quick and not much more it's why he still plays for Spurs no matter how much they claim its because hes not for sale if a big club came knocking they wouldn't be able to hold on. But nobody has even bothered.
