KIERAN WALLACE is looking to join Mansfield Town following the expiration of his loan deal at York City.

The central midfielder joined York on loan from Burton Albion in November and started in six successive matches for City prior to the weekend’s Buildbase FA Trophy win over Slough Town.

Wallace has now returned to his parent club following the end of the short-term deal and is seeking a move to Sky Bet League Two side Mansfield.

“We would have liked to have got Kieran back in but he decided that he wanted to play at the highest level possible,” revealed York first-team coach Kingsley James.

“He was looking at the options available to him and the latest we knew was that he was looking to join Mansfield Town on loan.”

Elsewhere on the loan front, winger Reon Potts and defender Lewis Cunningham are available for selection for York again following the end of their loan spells, at Ossett United and Warrington Rylands respectively.

Midfielder Archie Whitfield, who has also spent time on loan at Ossett earlier this term, has joined Pitching In Northern Premier League east side Bridlington Town on a two-month loan deal.

NPL premier division outfit Scarborough Athletic have retained City’s Ryan Whitley on loan until the end of the season, although the Minstermen have a 24-hour recall clause on the goalkeeper.

York’s next match in the Vanarama National League North is an away trip to in-form Kidderminster Harriers, who currently sit fifth in the table, and City are hopeful of calling upon Scott Barrow and Remy Longdon.

The pair missed the victory over Slough at the LNER Community Stadium after testing positive for coronavirus.
