Middlesbrough have signed Tottenham Hotspur youngster Ryan Fredericks on a season-long loan.

The 21-year-old attacking full-back completed the formalities of his switch to Teesside on Thursday, ahead of the weekend visit from Reading.

The youngster, a product of Tottenham's Academy system, has made four appearances for the White Hart Lane Club, and made his debut in the Europa League for Spurs as a teenager against Hearts in 2011.

He has since gained league experience at Brentford and at Millwall, where he made 14 appearances during a loan spell at the Den last season.
