New Millwall boss Ian Holloway has made Spurs youngster Ryan Fredericks his first signing since taking over at The Den. The winger-turned-fullback will head on loan to the other side of London for the rest of the season where he'll presumably slot in at right back.
The former wide midfielder, like his Spurs teammate Danny Rose, has been reinvented as a fullback to great success. Though last season he only managed four appearances on loan in League One with Brentford, he had a fabulous debut earlier this season for the Spurs first team that must have been enough to convince Holloway of his abilities. Fredericks shone in his 45 minute substitute apperance in the 4-1 win against Anzhi Makhachkala, impressing with his surging runs up the flank and earning a penalty.
He's not the first Spurs player to have an impact at Millwall, with Andros Townsend, Harry Kane, and fellow right back Adam Smith all having done well in previous loan moves with the Lions.
Hopefully he'll come back next season ready to compete with Kyle Walker, or at least Kyle Naughton, for a spot in the first team. Failing that, I guess we'll sell him to Swindon.
Good luck, Ryan!
