Bradford City have signed Tottenham goalkeeper Oscar Jansson on a one-month loan deal.

The Sweden Under-21 international could make his debut in Tuesday's Carling Cup first round tie at Leeds United.

Bradford had hoped to play , in the game but were refused permission by his parent club Liverpool.

Jansson, 20, told BBC Radio Leeds: "I want to play as many games as I can - that's what I need under my belt."

He has had previous loan spells at Exeter City and Northampton, and was the Cobblers' penalty hero in their Carling Cup second round win over Reading last season.

He said: "I'm only 20 but I'm trying to get games as soon as possible and try to reach the top level as soon as possible.

"Elland Road is a big scene and Leeds is a big rival of Bradford - it's a great game to come and make your debut in and hopefully I'll do that."

Manager Peter Jackson told the club website: "Oscar has been out on loan before in the Football League, so he knows what it is all about.

"I have been impressed with what I've seen of him and I think he will do well for us.

"He will now go up against Jon [McLaughlin] for a place in the side against Leeds on Tuesday.

"It will be a big occasion for him if he plays, but like the rest of the lads, I'm sure he'll be up for it."
