Mottley-Henry: "It feels good."

31 January 2018

Dylan Mottley-Henry has expressed his delight at joining the Spireites on transfer deadline day, as the Barnsley player signed for Chesterfield on a loan deal until the end of the season.

In his first interview with the club for iFollow he said: "It feels good - it's taken a while to find the right club for me, but Tommy Wright and Jack Lester have really sold the club to me and I'm very happy to be here."

Wright played a key role in bringing the 20-year-old to the club having worked with the player previously. "I've worked with him at Barnsley when he was the assistant manager at the time - he's very persuasive," Mottley-Henry revealed.

However, he isn't the only person that he knows from his days at Barnsley. Recent signing Josh Kay is another who Mottley-Henry knows well: "Josh was one of the other lads at Barnsley as well. He's a great lad and as a centre midfielder we work well together. Hopefully we'll be able to come together," he asserted.

Mottley-Henry meanwhile also commented on potential plans for him whilst with the Spireites and where he's likely to feature. He explained: "He just wants me to get balls into the box, get at players and be really positive."

In order for the Spireites new addition to do what the manager wants of him, he'll have to use his strengths to his advantage. But what does the Barnsley loanee see as his main attributes? "I'd probably say my pace is one asset which I need to use," the winger assessed.

"Getting past players and putting balls into the box is my main goal so hopefully it'll happen."

With the move now sorted, Mottley-Henry is eager to get started after a period of uncertainty over his future. "There was a bit of confusion about am I staying or going but I'm happy to be here," he noted.

Ahead of the Crawley match at the weekend, he concluded: "hopefully I'll be able to come into the team and offer some good quality."
