Chesterfield have signed young Huddersfield Town player Chris Atkinson on a youth loan deal.

The central midfielder moves to the Proact Stadium on an initial one-month youth loan deal until October 21.

Huddersfield Town manager Simon Grayson believes the move will offer Atkinson great experience.

He said: “Chris has played in every Development game so far and impressed the coaches immensely. We feel that this move will benefit his development as a young footballer in an environment close to home and in a team who are looking to bounce back following relegation.

“Our young Academy graduates such as Jack Hunt and Liam Ridehalgh have used loan spells at Chesterfield in the past to great effect and we are hoping Chris will do the same.”

The move is the 20 year-old’s second loan move after he made 15 appearances at Darlington last season.

He has made two starts and two substitute appearances for Huddersfield. His first appearance came off the bench against Macclesfield Town in the FA Cup with his first start coming later in the season against Dagenham and Redbridge.

Atkinson follows fellow loanee Liam Ridehalgh from Huddersfield to the Proact Stadium.
