Tottenham starlet happy with Under-21 boss

England Under-21 international Tom Carroll has expressed his delight with new manager Gareth Southgate. 

The Spurs youngster, who has joined former manager Harry Redknapp at QPR on loan, is impressed with the early work of the recently-appointed Southgate. 

"It has been really good working under the new gaffer and Steve (Holland)," he said. 

Carroll hasn't made a Premier League appearance for Tottenham yet and will spend his third season on loan as he joins former Spurs players Benoit Assou-Ekotto and Niko Kranjcar at Loftus Road. 

The Under-21's face Moldova on Thursday night at Reading's Madejski Stadium and Carroll is looking forward to the game. 

"Training has been enjoyable and the lads are loving it. It is a good group and we all get on well so we are just looking forward to the two games. It is always important to get off to a good start," he added. 

Former coach Stuart Pearce, whose contract for the role was not extended this summer, took the blame for a poor European Under-21 Championship campaign and was subsequently replaced by his former England colleague Southgate. 

The Spurs midfielder will be looking to impress during another loan spell and a run in the Under-21 side will help this immensely. 

Thursday's match will be Carroll's third cap should he take part. He already has one goal for his country.
