Stockport County have signed Sheffield United defender Evan Horwood on loan.Stockport County have signed Premiership target Evan Horwood on a month's loan from Championship side Sheffield United.
The 19-year-old left back has attracted the interest of Premiership sides Newcastle United and Aston Villa, who have monitored the teenager's progress in the Bramall Lane club's reserves this season.
The Hartlepool-born player, who can also play at centre back, will replace the suspended John Hardiker in Chris Turner's side for Saturday's clash with fellow strugglers Colchester United at Edgeley Park.
The former Hartlepool United and Sheffield Wednesday boss was pleased to extend the loan of another Blades player in Kevan Hurst for a further four weeks.
"Evan is a natural left full back with bags of talent and I'm delighted to have been able to bring him to Edgeley Park and for that I must thank Neil Warnock, who has also agreed to let us have Kevan Hurst for another month," Turner told the club's website.
