GK: Paul Robinson

The Leeds United FA Youth Cup winner began his senior footballing career with the Whites. Over the course of six seasons, Robinson made 119 appearances and even scored one goal - a last minute equaliser against Swindon Town in the League Cup - during his time in Yorkshire. Robinson would later go on to feature in between the sticks for Spurs 175 times and earn 41 England caps.

DEF: Jonathan Woodgate

Another 1997 FA Youth Cup winner in this team as Jonathan Woodgate takes the first defender spot. Woodgate made 142 appearances and scored six goals during his time with the Whites and he also earned his first four England caps while playing for Leeds. After spells with Newcastle, Real Madrid and Middlesbrough, he made the move to Tottenham where he would win the League Cup in 2008, the club's most recent trophy. The defender played 65 times for Spurs and netted three times.

DEF: Adam Smith

Smith was signed on loan from Tottenham by then Leeds manager Simon Grayson in January 2012. His time in Yorkshire was short-lived as Smith featured just three times for Leeds before being recalled by Spurs to provide cover for right back Kyle Walker. He made his first and only appearance for the club in May 2012 in a 2-0 win over Fulham.

DEF: David Kerslake

In 1993, Kerslake played eight games for Leeds before moving directly to Tottenham a few months later where he would remain for the next four years of his career. He made 37 appearances for Spurs and had loan spells with Swindon and Charlton during his time with the Lilywhites.

DEF: Chris Fairclough

After making over 100 appearances for Nottingham Forest in the 80s, Fairclough made the move to Tottenham Hotspur in 1987 where he would go on to make 80 appearances and score five times under Terry Venables. He initially joined Leeds on loan in March 1989 before making the move permanent that summer and becoming an essential part of the 89/90 Second Division title winning squad in the heart of defence. Fairclough was almost ever-present for Leeds and won the 1990 Player of the Year award.

MID: Aaron Lennon

Born in Leeds, Lennon became the youngest ever player to play in the Premier League when he came on as a substitute against Tottenham at the age of 16 years and 129 days. The winger would spend two seasons with his boyhood club playing in both the Premier League and Championship - racking up 43 appearances and scoring one goal in the process. Tottenham would soon come calling for the youngster in 2005 and he would remain at the Lilywhites until 2015. Lennon featured 364 times for Spurs and scored 30 times during his 10-year period with the club.

MID: Jake Livermore

Current free agent Jake Livermore began his senior career with Tottenham Hotspur. He was sent out on seven loan spells during his time there, one of which was a loan to Leeds in 2011 where he featured in five Championship games for the Whites. Livermore made his England debut during his time at Tottenham in 2012 and made 58 appearances and scored once with the club.

MID: Terry Yorath

The Wales international came through the ranks at Leeds United and established himself as a first team regular in during the 1972/73 season. He was a part of the 73/74 First Division title winning season and was also the first Welshman to play in a European Cup final when Leeds reached the 1973 final of the UEFA European Cup. Yorath played 141 times for Leeds and scored 10 goals. Tottenham claimed the midfielder's signature in 1979 and he went on to make 46 appearances and score one goal.

MID: Andros Townsend

Townsend was sent out on loan to several League One and Championship clubs before making his Tottenham debut in an FA Cup third round tie against Charlton Athletic in January 2011. One year later, Townsend joined Leeds on loan and netted once in seven appearances. He would later go on to play 93 games for Spurs and score 11 times.

MID: Steve Hodge

Steve Hodge was a part of the 91/92 First Division title winning team, although he didn't claim a regular starting place, he still made important contributions during the season. He featured 23 times and scored seven goals for Howard Wilkinson's team on their route to the title. In total, he made 54 appearances for Leeds between 1991 and 1994 and netted 10 times. Before his Leeds days, Hodge played for Spurs from 1986 to 1988 under David Pleat. The England international racked up 45 appearances and scored 7 goals for the Lilywhites.

ATT: Robbie Keane

First team coach Robbie Keane joined Leeds on loan in 2001 from Inter Milan and his deal was eventually made permanent in May that year. After making 56 appearances and scoring 19 goals, Keane made the move to London to sign for Tottenham Hotspur. Between 2002 and 2008, Keane played 254 times and scored 107 goals in all competitions before his move to Liverpool. However, Keane returned to Spurs in February 2009 and added to his appearances and goals tally by featuring 52 more times and scoring 19 more goals until his final departure from the club in 2011.
