Orient swoop for Spurs starlet

Midfielder moves to Brisbane Road until the end of the season.

LEYTON ORIENT manager Russell Slade has bolstered his midfield with the signing of Tottenham Hotspur youngster Tom Carroll on loan for the rest of the season.

The 18-year-old academy graduate scored 10 goals in 23 appearances from midfield last season, earning him a first professional contract at White Hart Lane.

Carroll’s arrival takes the tally of Spurs youngsters on loan at Brisbane Road to three, with team-mates Harry Kane and Paul-Jose M’Poku also with the club until the end of the season.

The Spurs starlet is likely to go straight into the O’s squad for their FA Cup clash at Swansea City on Saturday and will wear the number 25 shirt for Slade’s side.
