Tottenham striker Jon Obika joins Swindon Town on loan

Swindon Town have completed the signing of Spurs forward Jon Obika on loan until the end of the season.

Obika, 20, has curtailed a similar loan spell at Peterborough to join the struggling Robins.

Swindon boss Danny Wilson said last week he was hopeful of concluding a deal for Obika.

"He's still Peterborough's player this moment in time but we're hopeful we'll have an addition next week some stage," Wilson told BBC Wiltshire on Friday.

He added: "It's not done and dusted as he's still technically a Peterborough player."

Obika played for Spurs in their UEFA Cup campaign during the 2008/09 season but since then has spent time on loan with Millwall and Yeovil (twice).

He arrived at London Road four weeks ago having had a four month spell at Crystal Palace at the start of this season.
