Dele Alli's rise to prominence with Tottenham and England has been confirmed by the midfielder being named the world's fourth best U21 player with Manchester United's French forward Anthony Martial top of the list.

Dele Alli - valued at £28.3m by the Soccerex report only two years after Tottenham paid £5m to sign him - was turning out for League One MK Dons a year ago, but has made a remarkable rise to prominence.

He has now played 58 times for club and country, including four appearances for England at the Euro 2016 finals only eight months after making his international debut for the national side.

Martial, 20, joined United from Monaco for £36m last September, turning out 61 times for club and country and helping host nation France to reach the final of the Euro finals where they lost 1-0 to Portugal in the final in Paris.
