Huddersfield Town Under-23s striker Rekeil Pyke has joined Sky Bet League 2 side Port Vale on a season-long loan deal.
The Terriers have the option to recall the 19 year-old during the January transfer window with his loan deal running until 31 May 2017.
Rekeil joined the Club at Under-12 level from local side Rothwell Juniors and progressed through the Academy age groups at a fast pace.
For the last two seasons, he has been a regular in Senior Professional Development Coach Frankie Bunn’s Under-23 side; netting seven times in 18 starts across the Professional Development League and Premier League Cup during the 2016/17 season.
Whilst also impressing for Bunn’s side last year, the youngster had loan spells in the Vanarama National League and in Sky Bet League 2 with AFC Wrexham and Colchester United respectively.
The striker also played for David Wagner’s First Team in the 2016/17 pre-season friendlies against Liverpool FC, FC Ingolstadt 04 and Oldham Athletic.
The 19 year-old will continue his development under Michael Brown; the Valiants finished 21st in Sky Bet League 1 last season, which led to relegation to the fourth tier of English football.
