York City have re-signed Middlesbrough winger Ryan Brobbel on loan until the end of the season.

The 21-year-old had a successful spell with the Minstermen earlier this season, scoring three goals in 12 appearances.

With Josh Carson expected to be occupying the sidelines for some time due to a knee problem, Brobbel will go straight into the York squad for Saturday's crucial clash with fellow play-off chasers Burton.

York manager Nigel Worthington said: "I'm delighted to get Ryan in. Since we've lost Josh, it will give us more strength in the wide areas plus numbers and bodies as well."
