Cambridge United have signed defender Jubril Okedina on loan from Premier League side Tottenham until the end of the season.

The versatile 20-year old, who normally plays at right-back or centre-back, joins the League Two club after signing a new deal with Spurs until 2022.

Okedina has yet to make a senior first-team appearance for the London club.

"His attitude, defensive qualities and athleticism make him a good addition," said U's head coach Mark Bonner.

"This will be a good experience for Jubril as it's his first senior loan and he offers us good competition and cover in the defensive unit."
