Manchester City striker joins until 6 January
Huddersfield Town has moved ahead of the emergency loan window closing to bring Manchester City’s 21 year-old striker Harry Bunn to the Club.
The Oldham-born forward joins the Terriers until 6 January 2014 inclusive and will work with the Under-21 squad under Senior Professional Development Coach Steve Eyre.
Harry has been at Manchester City for over a decade, progressing through the Club’s Academy before turning professional. However, his experience of senior football has come through five loan spells.
Time at Rochdale, Preston North End and Oldham Athletic preceded another loan at Crewe Alexandra in the 2012/13 season, which sadly came to an abrupt end due to a cruciate ligament injury after an encouraging start.
However, Harry has now fully recovered and has just completed a loan at League 1 Sheffield United. He was taken to Bramall Lane by David Weir, but his opportunity was cut short by the arrival of Marlon King and Weir’s subsequent sacking.
Huddersfield Town’s Senior Professional Development Coach Steve Eyre commented:
“Harry is a player I know very well. I worked with him at Manchester City for over a decade and gave him his Football League debut during my time as Manager of Rochdale. Harry is a striker with the desire to match his talent.
“It is difficult to break into the first team at Manchester City, so it makes perfect sense for everyone for us to take a closer look at him throughout the festive period.
“Although Harry will work with our Under-21 group upon his arrival, his presence will also allow First Team Manager Mark Robins to see him at close quarters.
“It’s a great opportunity for him to make his mark here and provide more competition in the playing group.”
Harry has a connection with Huddersfield Town as the son of the Club’s Professional Development Coach Frankie Bunn.
