Tom Carroll made a deadline-day move to Queens Park Rangers, to be reunited with former Spurs boss Harry Redknapp as the Championship outfit bid for an instant return to the top flight.

Redknapp is a keen admirer of the 21-year old, and he will be hoping the season-long loan benefits both clubs and helps Carroll return to White Hart Lane ready to challenge for a first-team place.

Spurs boss Andre Villas-Boas will be hoping that Carroll can follow in the footsteps of Andros Townsend, who impressed whilst on loan at their London rivals last season.

Townsend has forced his way into a star-studded Spurs side in the early weeks of the new campaign, with Carroll certainly possessing the potential to match his team-mate's progression.

Carroll took to social media platforms to express his delight at the loan move. Carroll tweeted: "I am delighted to come here and really excited."

Crystal Palace and Watford were also keen on the youngster, but the lure of linking up once again with Redknapp was too much for the England Under-21 international.

Carroll is joined at Loftus Road by Spurs team mate Benoit Assou-Ekotto, as Redknapp looks to make good use of his contacts at White Hart Lane. The Cameroon international is said to have turned down moves abroad to also link up with the likeable manager for another spell.
