Tottenham have sent striker Simon Dawkins on-loan to San Jose Earthquakes.

Dawkins, 23, signed a new contract with Spurs last week and has moved to the 'States on-loan for the entire MLS season.

The forward recently signed a contract at the Club until 2013 and has had previous loan experience with Leyton Orient in the 2008/09 season.

Dawkins originally met his new teammates during San Jose's 10-day preseason training camp at Spurs Lodge last month and will now link up with the team ahead of their opening MLS fixture this weekend when they host Real Salt Lake.
