York City attacker Alex Kempster is on the verge of completing a loan move away from Bootham Crescent, York Press report.
Kempster, recruited from Northern League outfit Whitley Bay nine months ago, scored on his City debut last term in the 4-1 defeat at Curzon Ashton but, having started the first three games of this season, he has only featured once as a substitute – during the 3-0 FA Cup triumph over St Ives Town – since Sam Collins took over as manager in mid-August.
City chief Collins has not closed the door on Kempster’s City career, suggesting that he could still feature for the club during the second half of the campaign but, like defender Tom Allan, who has been farmed out to Alfreton Town, the 23-year-old forward cannot currently be guaranteed a first-team football at Bootham Crescent.
On Kempster’s imminent switch, Collins said: “I’m pretty certain a loan move for Alex Kempster will go through. I don’t want to say which club he’s going to until it’s all confirmed, but it’s pretty much done.”
