Tottenham have announced that academy graduate Kenneth McEvoy has moved to League One side Peterborough on loan for the season, via their official site.
The Republic of Ireland U21 winger was a regular in the Tottenham U21 side, making 18 appearances, and will be looking forward to his first taste of senior football.
"Hopefully I can show what I can do and add something to the team. This is my first loan and I can't wait to see what is in store for me and that I rise to the challenge," said McEvoy to Peterborough's official Youtube channel.
"It's good to play in front of big crowds and showing what you can do. I don't really mind which wing I play - left or right - I will just play where I am needed," the Irishman added.
The loan is a youth loan, meaning Spurs can recall him back to Spurs lodge to train during the week, and if the youngster does not get enough games the agreement can be terminated immediately.
Posh are already looking forward to seeing the flying winger on the pitch, according to chairman Darragh MacAnthony's comments on social media site Twitter.
He said: "Really happy to sign young Kenny McEvoy from Spurs on loan. Our fans
will love this lad, pace, width both sides, flair & plenty of goals!"
McEvoy was tagged 'the Irish Bale', as he looks similar to the former Spurs man and uses his pace to beat defenders. This loan move gives him an opportunity to impress and follow another winger, Andros Townsend, into the Tottenham starting XI.
