Bournemouth sign Nathan Byrne from Tottenham Hotspur

Nathan Byrne

Bournemouth have signed teenage Tottenham defender Nathan Byrne on a season-long loan deal.

The 19-year-old is predominantly a right-back, and fills the void left by another Spurs loanee - Adam Smith - who was with the Cherries last season.

Byrne is yet to appear for the Spurs first team, but spent three months at Brentford last season.

Cherries boss Lee Bradbury told BBC Radio Solent: "He comes with a good background, and we're delighted."

He added: "He's highly-rated at Spurs, and there were a couple of other League One clubs after him, but we managed to get in first and it's a great signing for us."

"He's very mobile, and he'll fit into our squad nicely."
