HIGHLY-RATED Spurs youngster Tom Carroll has signed a season long loan at QPR.
The England Under-21 ace has put pen to paper on a deal until the end of the 2013/14 campaign at Loftus Road.
The deal for Carroll – who is widely regarded as one of the brightest young prospects in the English game – sees him link up with Harry Redknapp for a second time.
Redknapp, of course, nurtured Carroll’s development at White Hart Lane during his spell with the North London club, handing him his debut for the Lilywhites in a Europa League tie in August 2011.
Speaking exclusively to www.qpr.co.uk, the delighted R’s boss said: “Tom’s a fantastic signing for us on loan.
“He’s a player I fully expect to go to the very top of the game – he’s a future England international.
“I played him at Spurs in Europe and he was fantastic for me. He’s got all the attributes to be a top, top player.
“He can pass, he can create, he can score goals – he’s a fantastic player and I’m confident he’ll flourish here for us.”
Carroll, who is currently on international duty with the England Under-21 squad, added: “I am delighted to come here and really excited.
“Harry was a big factor for me because of how he likes the game to be played.
“The important thing for me now at this time in my career is to be playing regular football and hopefully I can achieve that here.
“I’ve seen what Kyle (Walker) and Andros (Townsend) got from their loans at Loftus Road, and I hope I can enjoy similar success.”
