Jack Spong is joining League 2 Crawley Town on loan until the end of the season.

The 20-year-old midfielder has progressed through the academy after joining the club in 2013 and made his debut in the under-21s in 2019.

Later that year he made his first senior appearance in a Carabao Cup tie against Aston Villa at the Amex. Jack has made 10 appearances in Premier League 2 this season, contributing two goals and four assists.

Under-21s head coach Shannon Ruth said, “Jack has been part of our academy for almost 10 years now and is a regular for the under-21s. We believe now he’s ready to step into a first-team environment and get his first taste of senior football. We wish him well at Crawley and we’ll be monitoring his progress closely.”
