Harrogate Town have signed Lincoln City striker Adi Yussuf on a month’s loan in time for tomorrow’s Skrill North game at Leamington.

Adi, 21, has been registered for the next month and played against Town in the pre-season friendly for the Imps.

Manager Simon Weaver said:“We are pleased that Adi has chosen to join us on loan. He’s young, big, powerful and quick.

“The biggest attraction for me though is signing someone who is very hungry and is keen to prove himself.”

Starting his career at Leicester City, Adi was a regular in both the Foxes’ youth and reserve side.

He gained Conference Premier experience with a loan spell at Tamworth during the 2010-2011 season.

Following his release from Leicester, he joined Burton Albion. His final number of appearances was halted by injury during his second year.

In the end, Yussuf played 31 times, scoring two goals.

He joined current club Lincoln City in May 2013 and made his debut against Salisbury City in September.

A short loan move to Town’s Skrill North rivals Gainsborough Trinity arrived in November where he scored the winner in a 2-1 victory over Bradford Park Avenue.
