James Husband is looking forward to taking the Huddersfield Town challenge.
The on-loan Middlesbrough left-back, whose initial stay is until February 6, is fresh from a stint at Fulham.
He played 12 times for the London side after joining them for a second stint on August 28.
“I learned a lot there,” said the 22-year-old former Doncaster Rovers player, who has been kept out of the Middlesbrough team by George Friend.
“I’m hoping to learn a lot here too, and from what I’ve seen and heard, I think I will.”
As well as talking to Town head coach David Wagner, Husband took advice from Town’s former Middlesbrough midfielder Dean Whitehead.
He was also advised to make the switch by Mustpaha Carayol, the Middlesbrough winger who having spent the first half of the season at Town, has now been loaned to Leeds United.
“Both those two had nothing but positive things to say,” explained Husband, who is eligible for the FA Cup third-round home tie against Reading.
“I live in Leeds, so I know a bit about Huddersfield, and I have played at the stadium before.
“It’s important for any footballer to play games, and that’s my aim in coming here.
“I think the style of football will be enjoyable to play and I’m am looking forward to getting going.”
