Bristol City have announced the signing of Tottenham wing-back Ryan Fredericks for an undisclosed fee.
The 22-year-old defender signed a three-year contract on Thursday after passing a medical at the Sky Bet Championship club’s training ground.
“There was certainly a fair bit of competition for his signature from a number of other Championship clubs,” manager Steve Cotterill told the official Bristol City website.
“He’ll provide us with lots of pace in an area where we needed more competition; that wing-back role is a hard shift game after game over the course of the season.
“He’s had a good grounding at Tottenham and enjoyed a good spell on loan at Middlesbrough last season.”
Fredericks came through the ranks at White Hart Lane with his four first-team appearances all coming in the Europa League.
The Hertfordshire-born player went on to have loan spells at Brentford and Millwall and last season spent the entire campaign at Middlesbrough, making 19 appearances for the Championship club.
