Dundee sign Scunthorpe right-back Horsfield

Dundee have signed Scunthorpe right-back James Horsfield on loan for the rest of the season.

The 23-year-old, who can also play in midfield, started his career in the Manchester City youth ranks before joining NAC Breda in the summer of 2017 following a loan spell with the Dutch club.

Horsfield moved to Scunthorpe last summer and has made 15 appearances for the Sky Bet League One side.

The defender becomes the second player in Stuart McCall’s squad to join Dundee on loan this month – winger Andy Dales made his first start in Wednesday’s 2-1 win over Hearts, which lifted Jim McIntyre’s team off the bottom of the Ladbrokes Premiership.
