Spurs youngster Jake Livermore has joined Leeds on loan until the end of the season.

The 21 year old Tottenham academy product has had previous Championship loan experience and featured for Ipswich Town against Leeds earlier in the season.

He is described as a powerful young midfielder by the Spurs website and arrives to add competition for places though it’s unclear as yet how much a role he will have to play. The likelihood is he has been brought in to add a more physical option to our midfield.

At 21 years old and with limited playing time due to injury, he isn’t the experienced campaigner many fans were hoping for. Simon Grayson though sees him as a hungry young player and a good addition so hopefully the signing will work out. His loan deal will cover him to play for Leeds until the end of May should we reach the play offs.
