York City seal loan deal for Daniel Kearns
NEW loan signing Daniel Kearns can bring excitement to York City’s midfield, according to Bootham Crescent boss Gary Mills.
Kearns, 21, has been recruited for a month from Championship outfit Peterborough United, where he played 21 times last season.
The former West Ham apprentice has not featured at all for Posh this term but Mills is considering him for a City debut in tomorrow’s home match against Rotherham.
After being released by the Hammers, Belfast-born Kearns joined Dundalk and has unusually played for both Northern Ireland and Eire at youth international level.
He signed a three-year deal with Peterborough in 2011 and Mills believes he will be a good acquisition for the Minstermen, saying: “I’ve known about him for a while and saw him play for Peterborough a couple of times last season.
“I asked if he was available because he’s a good footballer with two good feet. I am delighted to get him for a month and I hope it works out for him and us.
“He’s somebody I like and the type of player I thought we possibly needed because he’s an exciting player who keeps the ball well and can open up teams with a pass.
“He played for us in the reserve match against Newcastle on Wednesday and he’s got a chance of playing tomorrow because I’ve brought him into the squad with the intention of improving us.”
