And he has urged the Blues boss to strike a deal to bring the highly-rated Spurs youngster back to Fratton Park on another loan.

White spent the second half of last season at Pompey after being recruited by former manager Kenny Jackett.

He made 22 appearances in total, scoring once – the winner in a 1-0 victory at Oxford.

But only six of those outings were starts, with just one coming after Danny Cowley was handed the first-team reigns in mid-March.

The 19-year-old did feature in nine of the 12 games the new manager was given to secure a Blues play-off spot.

And since his return to Spurs, Cowley has admitted he’s spoken to interim Tottenham boss Ryan Mason to see if another loan option is available.

The new Blues head coach is eager to put his own stamp on the senior set-up at Fratton Park, with young, hungry players central to that vision.

And according to Norris, White fits into that remit perfectly.

He told The Transfer Tavern: ‘If they could get him that would be a good signing.

‘The couple of people I spoke to said he looks hungry and wants to improve.

‘And that is right up the Cowleys’ street, so I think that would be a very good signing, especially based on what he’s done so far.’
