Nigel Clough pleased to sign Smith

Nigel Clough is pleased Derby County were able to bring in Adam Smith on a season-long loan from Tottenham Hotspur.

The 22-year-old has 11 England under-21 caps to his name, and is set to feature in the Rams' first game of the season at home to Blackburn on Sunday.

He is a young player with a lot of potential and we have been very impressed with what we have seen of him over the last few years.

Whenever we have seen him in the Championship or on international duty he has stood out as a very solid right back, and someone that likes to get forward as well.

– Nigel Clough, Derby County Manager
