Chris Atkinson signs up until January

Huddersfield Town’s Chris Atkinson has joined Tranmere Rovers on loan until January. 

The 21-year old midfielder has made 44 career appearances, scoring six goals. 

He has had loan spells at Darlington and Chesterfield and made seven appearances in the Championship last season.

Manager Ronnie Moore said: “I’m really pleased Chris has joined us. 

“He’s a bright, energetic young midfielder who is highly thought of at Huddersfield. 

“We did really well out of the long term loan system last season with Jake Cassidy, Liam Palmer and Ben Gibson all playing a lot of games for us and hopefully Chris will have as big an impact as them. 

“He impressed me in his loan spell at Chesterfield last season and he worked his way into the first team squad at Huddersfield as a result of how he had progressed. 

“I’d like to thank Huddersfield Town and Mark Robins for letting Chris spend the first half of the season with us and we will review the loan as it progresses to see if we want to extend it.”
