Adam Smith: Will spend a season at White Hart Lane

Adam Smith: Will spend a season at White Hart Lane

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."

e'll be fine, no problem. If they do get relegated, he's definitely going to ask how anyone could ever have thought that Villa were going to be fine given their problems before he came.

toke though. Hmn. I don't think it was defending that made people dislike Stoke so much as the out and out cheating/nastiness they regularly displayed. That, and they kept buying the odd flair player and then ruining them (Oh! Tuncay, what were you thinking?).

ell that really inspires me with confidence. No point in training, deciding on a coherent formation, or playing players in their best positions, let's just hope we get lucky.
