York City have extended the loan spell of Middlesbrough striker Bradley Fewster until the end of the season.
Fewster joined The Minstermen on a short term loan deal at the end of November which was scheduled to expire in January however City announced that the deal had been extended until the end of the season following Saturday’s devastating League 2 defeat at Yeovil Town.
The 19 year old striker can also play out wide and has scored once in 5 appearances for The Minstermen. The striker originally caught the eye when he featured in a behind closed doors match for Middlesbrough against York City back in October.
Fewster is a Middlesbrough lad and graduated through the youth team set up at The Riverside Stadium before having a loan spell at Preston North End last season. The striker is an England Under 19 international and has represented his country at Under 16 to Under 19 levels.
The extension of Fewster’s loan deal at Bootham Crescent represents the first piece of January transfer business conducted by Manager Jackie McNamara.
The Scot will be looking for the Middlesbrough loanee to find the goals to help boost City’s survival bid and secure Football League safety for the club for another season.
