Leeds United have officially announced the acquisition of Djed Spence, who will be on loan from Tottenham Hotspur for the duration of the 2023/24 season.
At the age of 23, Spence, a talented full-back, marks the sixth addition to Daniel Farke’s team during the current summer transfer window.
In an interview with LUTV following his arrival at the club, Spence shared his perspective on this transition.
He said: “It’s good to be here and I can’t wait to get started.
“It’s a big club, obviously there’s a good squad and there is ambition at the club to get back to the Premier League.
“I just want to get playing again. There’s a good manager here, I’ve heard a lot about him and way he wants to play attacking football. I think that will suit my style of football.
“I’ve spoken to him [Daniel Farke] and he’s orchestrated in the way he wants to play, it sounded good and for me it was the right decision.”
Spence joins fellow Spurs loanee Joe Rodon at the club, and he could now make his debut against Sheffield Wednesday in a Yorkshire derby at Elland Road this weekend.
“Yeah, I know Joe from my parent club [Tottenham Hotspur] and from when I was out on loan last season [at Rennes, in Ligue 1],” the full-back explained.
“It’s good to have a him in the building as well, someone that I know.
“It’s just exciting now to join the team and hopefully I can impress everyone here.
“I’m looking forward to playing at Elland Road, I’ve heard a lot about the fans. They are meant to be very loud.
“We want to win as many games as we can now.”
