Adam Smith: Has joined Leeds on loan

The Whites bolstered their backline on transfer deadline day with a right-back who had been helping MK Dons challenge for promotion.

Spurs recalled the 20-year-old from his loan with the League One side on Monday in order to facilitate his switch to Leeds until the summer.

Grayson has admitted tracking the England Under 21 international for some time and feels the youngster has a 'bright' future.

Leeds have already raided White Hart Lane for Andros Townsend this month while Grayson brought in Jake Livermore on loan last season.

"Adam is a player we've been monitoring for a few months now at MK Dons. He has done very, very well and we're delighted we could get his services," he told the club's official website.

"We know how highly thought of he was at MK and on top of the reports we've had, he's had some great recommendations from Stuart Pearce and Harry Redknapp.

"Adam is an England Under 21 international with a bright future and he is a great addition for us."
