Swindon boss Danny Wilson has captured promising Tottenham striker Jon Obika on loan for the rest of the season.

Wilson has wasted no time reacting to the reopening of the emergency loan market and has swooped for the young forward's services.

Obika, 20, is a product of Spurs' Academy and has previously enjoyed fruitful loan stints with Yeovil and Millwall before joining Crystal Palace for the first half of this season.

He made eight substitute appearances for the Eagles, without scoring, before moving to Peterborough at the start of January where he scored once in two further cameos.

His switch to London Road was initially set to last until May but that has now been cancelled and Obika has signed on the dotted line at the County Ground.

He joins Swindon's deadline-day signing Elliot Benyon in trying to fill the void left by Charlie Austin's departure to Burnley.
