Djed Spence confident he and Leeds United will prove an ideal match
The 23-year-old right-back has joined on a season-long loan from Tottenham Hotspur after a career which promised so much stuttered last season.
That earned him a move to Tottenham for an initial £12.5m, but with the potential to rise to £20m.
Spence failed to make a Premier League start for them, and was loaned to Rennes midway through the season, along with his club-mate Joe Rodon, also now on loan at Leeds. Daniel Farke plays with full-backs rather than wing-backs at Elland Road, but likes them high up the pitch.
"It's (exciting) just to get playing again with a good manager, he plays attacking football so I think it will suit my style of football," said Spence. "I've spoken to him (Farke) and he (outlined) how he wants the team to play. It sounded good."
Asked what he could bring, Spence replied: "Just excitement to the team.
"I've heard a lot about the fans (he has never played at Elland Road), and they're meant to be very lively so I'm looking forward to it."
Spence has signed in time to make his debut at home to Sheffield Wednesday on Saturday, which could give Leeds the option of moving captain Luke Ayling to problem position left-back.
The Whites are still working on deals to sign a specialist left-back and one, perhaps two, central midfielders in before Friday's 11pm deadline.
Leeds would therefore like to loan Luke Thomas from Leicester City but may be forced to turn to alternatives such as Burnley's Charlie Taylor with Sheffield United thought to be favourites to sign him.
In central midfield, a move for Nadiem Amiri fell through and long-standing interest in Rangers' Glen Kamara is yet to come to anything. Reported interest in Ilia Gruev suggests they would like a more attacking option too with most of their No 10s deeper centre-forwards.
