The 22-year-old right-back, who is an England Under-21 international, will spend the entire 2013/14 campaign at Pride Park and will act as a replacement for the departed John Brayford, becoming the Rams' sixth summer signing.

Boss Nigel Clough told the club's official website: "We're extremely pleased to bring Adam in on a season-long loan deal.

"He's a young player with a lot of potential and we've been very impressed with what we've seen of him over the last few years.

"Whenever we've seen him on international duty he's stood out as a very solid right-back, and someone that likes to get forward as well.

"As soon as we were aware John was going to leave last week we identified Adam as someone we would like to bring in, so to have the deal done within a matter of days is very pleasing and we're sure he'll be a good player for us.

"It also says a lot that Tottenham are prepared to let him spend the season with us.

"They're obviously aware of our reputation when it comes to young players and there's no doubt it'll be a great experience for Adam coming here and playing a full season in the Championship."

heyremind me of Utd's treble winning side. Swashbuckling and risk prone. We ha Jaap Stam to paper over the cracks at the back though. Not sure they have their Jaap yet.

he solution is to not feel sorry for any of Jabba, Gold or Sullivan. They're all deeply unpleasant and all deserve each other. If only West Ham would sign Barton and Suarez then no one would ever need to despise any other club.
