Spurs are less one right back today after the club announced the sale of youth academy graduate Ryan Fredericks to Championship club Bristol City. The announcement came via Spurs' official Twitter account.

A Cartilage Free Captain commentariat favorite, Fredericks came up in the academy alongside Harry Kane and Tom Carroll, and in fact made his first team debut as a right-sided midfielder with them in a Europa League match against Hearts in 2011 (TBT: the same match that saw this site get inundated by pissed-off Hearts fans after Kevin dissed them in the match preview. Good times).

Later on, Fredericks was converted to a right back in Spurs' development squad. However, he never really got going much after that and was shipped off on loans to Brentford, Millwall, and last year to Middlesbrough. He was well behind Kyle Walker, Kieran Trippier, and even DeAndre Yedlin at right back, so this is probably not a surprise move by the club: Fredericks needs games, and another loan is probably not going to help him much at this point.

Fredericks is joining a Bristol City club that was just promoted to the Championship, and and he should be a good addition to the Robins in the upcoming campaign. We wish Fredericks the best as he continues his career in the Championship.
