Tottenham Hotspur pair Nathan Oduwa and Luke McGee have joined League One side Peterborough United on six month loan deals, the club have confirmed. The moves were completed in the twilight of the final day of the summer transfer window which see the pair depart to build on their experience to date.
Twenty-year-old Oduwa spent last term with Scottish side Rangers and Colchester United, having spent part of the previous campaign at Luton Town. The England and Nigeria youth international is braced for his fourth spell away from Spurs, whom he is yet to represent at senior level.
"Nathan comes very highly recommended from David Pleat at Tottenham and I personally spoke to Mark Warburton at Rangers," Posh boss Grant McCann told the club's official website. "He was very good for Rangers in the time he was there and he will certainly excite the supporters.
"He is a crowd pleaser, he gets people off their seats and gives us another option. He loves to get at players and strengthens the wide area in our squad. I am really happy to get this one over the line."
McGee took the loan exits from Tottenham in the summer to seven – alongside 10 permanent exits – as he followed Oduwa to the ABAX Stadium until the start of January. The 20-year-old is regarded as third choice at White Hart Lane but amid the arrival of Pau Lopez from Espanyol has moved to Peterborough where he will hope to make his league debut.
"I have seen Luke play a number of times for the development squad at Spurs," McCann said of McGee, who joins from Tottenham after number one Ben Alnwick moved to Bolton Wanderers. "He is third choice behind Lloris and Vorm and trains with them on a regular basis.
"We had to move quickly because of the situation regarding Ben and I am delighted to get this business done. Luke will come here to fight for the number one jersey. That is what I want. It was an important bit of business to get done."
Confirmation of the deals on deadline were largely overshadowed by Mauricio Pochettino making three new additions to his senior squad. As well as Lopez's move from Espanyol, Georges-Kevin Nkoudou arrived from Marseille while Moussa Sissoko snubbed Everton to move to Tottenham in the dying embers of the transfer window
