OXFORD United are leading the race to sign Tottenham Hotspur youngster Jamie Donley on loan, according to BBC Sport.

Reports suggest United are in talks to add the 19-year-old centre forward on loan, with Donley also attracting interest from other clubs in Sky Bet Championship, plus some sides in League One.

Donley made his senior Spurs debut as a late substitute for Brennan Johnson during a 3-3 draw at Manchester City in December.

He was again a late substitute, this time for Son Heung-min, when Spurs beat Newcastle United 4-1 a week later.

Donley gained further experience from the bench as Tottenham beat Burnley 1-0 in the third round of the Emirates FA Cup, and in a 3-2 win at home to Brentford at the end of January.

The left-footer was born in Northern Ireland and has been at Tottenham since the age of eight.
