Tottenham youngster Jubril Okedina joins Cambridge United on loan
A product of the Tottenham youth academy, Okedina has progressed quite well over the past few seasons. The versatile defender, who can play at right-back and centre-back, has made 20 appearances for the club’s U18 side, scoring one goal.
Having been promoted to the U23 side, he went on to rack 27 appearances, bagging four goals in the process. Three of those goals came in 11 games in the ongoing campaign. (h/t Transfermarkt)
Tottenham had confirmed last week that Okedina had signed a new contract with the club, extending his stay till the summer of 2022. In the same update, the club had also revealed that the 20-year-old would be joining Cambridge United on loan for the rest of the campaign. (h/t Tottenham Hotspur Official Website)
And, on Tuesday, Okedina took to Instagram to share a picture of himself holding the Cambridge United jersey, with the caption “Looking forward to joining @cambridgeunitedfc on loan”.
The post comes off a bit delayed considering that Okedina had linked up with the League Two outfit last week itself. In fact, the 20-year-old was named among the substitutes for their league game against Harrogate Town on last Saturday.

Okedina had shown good form for the U23s prior to leaving the club on loan for Cambridge. It will be interesting to see how the defender develops in a first-team environment. It will surely be a great learning experience for the youngster and we wish him all the best for his spell with the League Two side.
