Leeds United have signed Tottenham's England Under-21 defender Adam Smith on loan until the end of the season.

Spurs recalled the right-back from MK Dons after cancelling his season-long stay at Stadium MK earlier on Tuesday.

The 20-year-old arrived at MK Dons in August and went on to make 17 league appearances for Karl Robinson's side.

But the Premier League outfit have exercised a clause in the agreement to bring Smith back to White Hart Lane and he is now heading to Elland Road.

"I feel let down and disappointed by the late notice but our hands are tied," Robinson told the Dons' club websiteexternal-link.

Smith has yet to play for Spurs but has had loan spells at Torquay, Wycombe and a season-long spell at Bournemouth last term.

"Adam is a player we've been monitoring for a few months now at MK Dons. He has done very, very well and we're delighted we could get his services," Leeds boss Simon Grayson told his club's websiteexternal-link.
