Lolley joins Iron on loan


United have confirmed the loan signing of Huddersfield wideman Joe Lolley.

Lolley, 23, joined the Terriers in a £350,000 move from Kidderminster Harriers , when Iron boss Mark Robins was in charge at the John Smith’s Stadium.

The winger, who can also play up front, has made four starts and 23 appearances from the bench for Huddersfield since his move from Aggborough in January 2014.

Terriers’ chairman Dean Hoyle insists the move is purely to aid Lolley’s development.

“Joe is a talented player with great potential, but he can’t shift Sean Scannell out of the team,” explained Hoyle.

“This loan is in the short term to help him get games and develop.

“In the long term we want him to be a permanent fixture at this club who is contributing week in, week out.

“Under 21 football is not good enough. They need competitive first-team games with fans around them.

Huddersfield boss Chris Powell added: “It is important that I stress this move is designed purely to get Joe consistent time on the pitch to aid his development.

“Everyone at the club is excited about Joe’s future, so hopefully he will excel during his time at Scunthorpe and return to us ready to make an impact in the Championship.”
