We are delighted to announce the signing of midfielder Scott High on a loan deal from Huddersfield Town until the summer.

The 22-year-old, who has chalked up 60 appearances in the English Championship, came through the academy system at Huddersfield and made his first-team debut in July 2020.

Loan deals at League One side Shrewsbury Town and Championship club Rotherham United – where he played with fellow Dundalk loanee Ciaran McGuckin – followed before he spent a brief spell with Ross County before Christmas.

Scott, who has represented Scotland at U21 level, will wear the number 18 shirt and becomes our eighth new signing of the window following the earlier arrivals of Dara Keane, Koen Oostenbrink, Robbie Mahon, Jamie Walker, Ross Munro, Jamie Gullan and Ciaran McGuckin (loan).
