FC Halifax Town have re-signed their former loan star Devante Rodney from Salford City.
The former Hartlepool United man rejoins the club on loan until the end of the season. The 21-year-old spent the final two months of last season at the Vanarama National League side on the same temporary basis, coming up with seven goals for Jamie Fullarton’s Shaymen.
Ex-Sheffield Wednesday youngster Rodney has recently been on loan at Stockport County, scoring three times in a two-month stint with Jim Gannon’s side. He now returns to Halifax, linking up this time with manager Pete Wild, who told the club’s official website:
“I’m absolutely ecstatic to finally secure Devante’s services on loan from Salford City. I tried to bring Devante into the club back at the beginning of the season, but with the budget already spent, we unfortunately couldn’t make the deal happen.
“However, with some movement in the current squad and the ongoing support from the chairman, I’m delighted to be able to bring Devante back for a second spell with us. The competition for him was strong so I’m really pleased that Devante decided he wanted to come back to The Shay.”
