YORK City have brought in Adam Buxton on loan from Morecambe until the end of the season.

Noted for his delivery of the ball, right-sided defender Buxton, 27, can also play on the left or in the centre.

Buxton started his career at Wigan Athletic before playing with Accrington Stanley, Portsmouth and the Shrimps, as well as featuring with the Minstermen's club captain Steve McNulty at Tranmere Rovers.

He is available for selection in tonight's National League North home match with Hereford.

Assistant manager Micky Cummins said: "He'll add a bit of experience. He's found himself out in the cold at his parent club.

"We're hoping to bring him in to influence the changing room and matchday squad, and hopefully bring a bit of nous about him.

"(Bringing him in) has been an ongoing process over the last couple of weeks.

"He's someone of good calibre. He has played at lower levels, this level, higher up, and had a lot of success.

"He's an old team-mate of McNulty so that's someone he knows in the changing room."
