Tottenham Hotspur youngsters Shaquile Coulthirst and Grant Ward have left the club to join York City and Coventry City on respective loan deals until the end of the season. The Premier League side confirmed both moves via their official Twitter account on 13 March.

Coulthirst, the 21-year-old forward who made his first-team debut for Spurs last season against Anzhi Makhachkala in the Europa League, has previously had spells away from Spurs on loan at Leyton Orient, Torquay United and Southend United earlier this season.

He arrives at Bootham Crescent to help York in their battle to survive relegation from League Two and is line to make his debut against fellow strugglers Carlisle United on 14 March.

Minstermen manager Russ Wilcox had previously tried to sign the youngster during his time as manager of Scunthorpe United and was delighted to have finally got his man for the final 11 games of the season.

Wilcox told York's official website: ""He played against Scunthorpe towards the end of last season for Torquay United and had a great game. I've tracked his progress ever since then and actually tried to sign him during pre-season at Scunthorpe but Tottenham wanted to keep him in London so to finally get my man at York is fantastic."

London-born midfielder Ward, meanwhile, has linked up with Coventry, subject to FA and Football League approval. The 20-year-old, who is yet to make a first-team appearance at White Hart Lane, finished a loan spell with Chicago Fire in the MLS in 2014.

Ward is also eligible to make his debut on 14 March against Chesterfield, with the Sky Blues also in a dogfight to retain their place in England's third tier.

"Yesterday, I stressed the importance of bringing in new additions to help the squad secure our League One status," new Coventry boss Tony Mowbray told the club's official website. "Grant gives us an important option, bringing a level of versatility to our midfield, and we hope he can provide a valuable impact from now until the end of the season."

Both Coulthirst and Ward leave Tottenham on youth loan deals. The Football League's emergency loan window closes on 26 March.
