Higginbotham moves back to Scotland

Kallum Higginbotham is set to join Scottish Premier League side Motherwell on loan until the end of the 2012/13 season.

The 23 year-old attacker started eight games and made a further three substitute during a three month loan spell at npower League 1 club Carlisle United at the end of 2012, but returned to the Terriers in early December.

He has subsequently been training with the North Lanarkshire-based side, who are managed by former Bradford City boss Stuart McCall and currently sit third in the country’s top flight. 

“Kallum’s loan spell at Carlisle didn’t really work out, but we gave him the opportunity to train at Motherwell to try and impress up there and everything has gone well for him so far.

“I know Stuart McCall well. He has a good team up at the right end of the division and Kallum is familiar with Scottish football from his time up there, so this move suits all parties. We have other options in attack and I don’t want to stop anyone playing First Team football if they aren’t going to get it here at this moment in time. 

“We will see where the Club and Kallum are at the end of the season. Hopefully things will work out for him at Motherwell and Kallum will regain some of his sharpness and confidence. He’s not been ruled out here, but this is the best move at this moment in time.”

Kallum, who joined Town from Falkirk in the January 2012 transfer window on a two and half year contract, has made five starts – including the npower League 1 Play-Off Final win over Sheffield United in May – and two further substitute appearances for Huddersfield Town to date.
