Huddersfield Town have completed the loan signing of Middlesbrough left-back James Husband until February 6.

And the 22-year-old former Doncaster Rovers player will be available for the FA Cup third-round tie at home to Reading.

Husband, who will wear shirt No15 for Town, has trained with his new teammates.

His initial spell at the club includes a home game against Fuham, where he has had two loan stints, one of them this season.

Town head coach David Wagner wants competition for Australian international Jason Davidson, and has lost the services of Leicester City loanee Ben Chilwell.

Leeds-born Husband built a solid reputation at Doncaster, helping Rovers win promotion to the Championship in 2013.

He was linked with a move to the Premier League before Middlesbrough signed him during the 2014 close-season, paying £500,000 and sending Curtis Main in the opposite direction.

With George Friend an established player at Boro, Husband has been unable to force his way into Aitor Karanka’s side.

Wagner 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 and helping him to understand our ideas.”
