Sheffield United youngster Jordan Hodder will be hoping to get some match minutes under his belt after arriving at Buxton on a month-long loan deal.

The full-back follows in the footsteps of fellow Blades youngsters Ioan Evans and Otis Khan, who both enjoyed loan spells at the Silverlands earlier in the campaign.

Hodder, who turns 19 next Thursday, signed a professional contract at Bramall Lane last summer.

He has spent most of this season playing for United’s under-21 side, with his most recent outing coming in the goalless draw with Nottingham Forest last Friday.

The arrangement continues Buxton’s link-up with the Steel City club, which began at the start of this season.

The link-up allows the Bucks to attend training at United’s Redtooth academy as well as identify potential loan signings, such as Hodder.
