Huddersfield Town have confirmed the loan signing of James Husband from Middlesbrough.

The left-back joins the Terriers on an emergency loan basis until February 6.

Husband trained with Town on Thursday, and the 22-year-old will be available for the FA Cup tie with Reading on Saturday.

Town head coach David Wagner hailed the capture of another specialist left-back.

He said: “Now that Ben Chilwell has returned to Leicester City, one of our targets in this winter window was to bring in another left back with Jason Davidson the only specialist in our squad.

“James is a player that the Club has watched over a long period of time and it is good that we could act so quickly when he was available. I must say thank you to Aitor Karanka and Middlesbrough for the speed of our negotiations too.

“From what I’ve seen from him during his loan period at Fulham, he has attributes that will work in our style. I look forward to working with James on the training pitch and helping him to understand our ideas.”
