Ahead of today’s game against Accrington Stanley, manager David Flitcroft secured the loan signing of Duane Holmes.

The young and versatile midfielder is a second year professional at Huddersfield Town and having been given the No 28 shirt in his spell with us, he has gone straight into the squad today – named on the bench.

He was one of the key members of Huddersfield’s U18 squad in their successful 2012-13 season, making 25 starts and scoring 16 times from his midfield position, and he has also made 25 senior appearances for the Huddersfield first team and during a loan spell with Yeovil Town last season in the Championship – last term he was voted Huddersfield’s Young Player of the Year.

A number of League One clubs were interested in him, but we have managed to fight off that competition and secure him on a youth loan until January 5.
