Middlesbrough have signed Serbia Under-21 international Milos Veljkovic from Tottenham in a youth loan deal.

The 19-year-old defender will remain with Boro until mid-January, and will link up with fellow Spurs loanee Ryan Fredericks on Teesside.

Veljkovic joined Spurs from FC Basel in 2011 and made his first-team debut as a late substitute in their 5-1 Premier League win over Sunderland in April.

He will be available for Saturday's away game at Brighton.
