Tottenham Hotspur academy product and striker Kazaiah Sterling is heading back to League One, this time with a new club. Spurs announced on their social media channels that the 20-year old forward will play at Doncaster Rovers in League One for the full season.

It’s the second loan for Sterling and the second time he’s headed off to League One. Last January, he spent the second half of the season on loan at Sunderland, and while he didn’t set the world on fire, he did make eight appearances, all as a substitute, and scored one goal against Accrington Stanley.

Sterling was a prolific scorer for Spurs at the U23 and U20 levels and another loan to League One would be a good move for him. Last season Doncaster finished sixth in the table and made the promotion playoffs, falling to eventual champions Charlton Athletic. Kaz will be filling the roster spot vacated by John Marquis, Doncaster’s leading scorer last season, who moved to Portsmouth this summer.

Kaz is at the age now where he needs first team minutes to continue to improve. Hopefully he’ll get them with the Rovers this season.
