Peterborough United have signed Tottenham midfielder Jake Livermore on-loan for the remainder of the season.

The Championship strugglers had agreed the deal earlier in the week and have now finalised the paperwork to bring in the 20-year-old.

Livermore spent the first half of the season on loan at Derby County, scoring once in 16 appearances for Nigel Clough's side.

He will now join Posh for a training camp in Tenerife and could make his debut for the club against Derby next weekend.

Posh boss Mark Cooper told the club's official website: "Jake will give us a bit more bite in midfield, which will certainly give us another option.

"He is a box-to-box midfielder and we are delighted to have him on board."
