Tottenham Hotspur goalkeeper Oscar Jansson has joined League Two promotion hopefuls Bradford City on a month's loan reports skysports.com.

The 20-year-old Swede has spent previous loan spells at Northampton Town and Exeter City, and links-up with the Bantams ahead of tomorrow night's Carling Cup clash against local rivals Leeds United.

The talented youngster is highly rated by Spurs boss Harry Redknapp, who convinced Jansson to pen a new one-year deal at White Hart Lane before completing his temporary switch to Valley Parade.

Having already completed the signing of another loan keeper Martin Hansen from Liverpool, Bradford boss Peter Jackson moved quickly to add the Tottenham stopper after the Reds refused permission for Hansen to play in the League Cup competition.

"With Liverpool not allowing us to play Martin on Tuesday, it meant we have had to move to bring another keeper in," he explained.


 

"Oscar has been out on loan before in the Football League so he knows what it is all about.

"I have been impressed with what I've seen of him and I think he will do well for us.

"He will now go up against Jon (McLaughlin) for a place in the side against Leeds on Tuesday.

"It will be a big occasion for him if he plays, but like the rest of the lads, I am sure he will be up for it."

Another young Spurs stopper Mirko Ranieri has left north London to return to his native Italy where he joins FC Esperia Viareggio to play in the third tier on a season-long loan deal.
