Tottenham defender Djed Spence is set for a return to the Championship as he closes in on a love move to Leeds United. 

The 23-year-old has struggled for game time in north London after his exceptional 2021-22 campaign prompted Spurs and then-manager Antonio Conte to shell out £20m to secure his services.

However, in his debut season Spence made just six appearances and spent the second half of the campaign on loan in Ligue 1 with Rennes, where he endured a similarly disappointing spell. 

A return to the second-tier with Daniel Farke’s side could see the attacking full-back enjoy a return to form. 

While Leeds are keen to bolster their options at full-back following their relegation from the Premier League, despite keeping hold of Junior Firpo and Luke Ayling and adding former Norwich star Sam Byram on a free transfer this summer.

Spurs are set to receive a £1million loan fee and have resisted including any form of buy option in the deal. 

Leeds hope Spence will help sure up a leaky defence that has been breached seven times in just four matches.

Farke’s side edged out an enthralling 4-3 draw away at Ipswich last weekend and take on bottom-of-the-league Sheffield Wednesday on Saturday. 

The team sit 13th after a mixed start to the Championship season, winning and losing once and drawing twice under Daniel Farke.
