YORK City have announced the capture of highly-rated youngster Luke Daley on a loan deal running until January 2. 

Daley joins York to help provide much-needed cover in the left-back position, something that Neal Ardley has been working tirelessly on. 

The Huddersfield defender penned a new three-year deal with Huddersfield in the Summer whilst playing for the Terriers' B team, and arrives to York with Vanarama National League experience. 

Having began his career in the academy of Port Vale, Daley actually joined Huddersfield as a left-winger before being converted into a left-back, impressing with his defensive attributes.

He was also named in the Terriers' squad for their recent trip to West Yorkshire rivals Leeds United in the Sky Bet Championship, and was once reportedly of interest to both Liverpool and Southampton, according to Yorkshire Live.

Daley had a loan spell with Gateshead last campaign and made 10 appearances under Mike Williamson, and is able to operate at left-back, left-wing back or on the left-wing, but has also played on the left of a back three under Jon Worthington in the Huddersfield academy this season. 

Worthington said after Daley signed a new long-term contract with Huddersfield: "[He] has had a challenging period, with frustrations with injury, but he is undoubtedly an exciting talent with lots of potential.

“Moving forward, the aim for him is to establish himself through a good loan at some point this season and to consistently play first team football.

"That will put him in a strong position moving forward."

The 20-year-old is available for selection for York's trip to Maidenhead United tomorrow afternoon.
