The versatile 20-year-old will be included in player-manager Andy Hessenthaler's squad for their trip to Sheffield United on Saturday - having made just three first team appearances for Spurs.
Marney, who can also play at right back, has had previous loan spells with Swindon Town and Queens Park Rangers before arriving at The Priestfield Stadium this week.
"He is a young Premiership player who we have watched twice," Hessenthaler told the club's official website.
"It gives us good competition for places, especially as we have players coming back from injury.
"I'm sure he'll enjoy it here too. We will benefit, he will benefit and Tottenham will benefit by him getting first team games."
