Solihull Moors have completed the signing of Burton Albion midfielder Ben Fox on a one-month youth loan deal.

The 19-year-old is a product of the Burton Albion academy and featured against the Moors for the Brewers in pre-season.

Fox signed his first professional contract at Burton in the summer of 2016 and has made four first-team appearances for the Championship side.

He recently scored his first professional goal in Brewers’ 2-1 win over Cardiff City in the League Cup last month.

The midfielder also spent time on loan at National League North side Tamworth last season, making 20 appearances in a half-season spell at the Lamb, impressing fans with a number of high-quality performances.

Moors boss Liam McDonald told the club’s official website of his delight at the capture of the highly-rated youngster and admitted that he has been a player whose progress he has followed closely in recent years.

‘I have kept an eye on Ben’s progress in recent years especially last season when he had a long loan spell at Tamworth.

‘He is a quality young player and will go straight into the squad for tomorrow’s home game against Macclesfield.’

What do you make of this signing? Good to see McDonald utilising the loan market? Let us know your thoughts in the comments section below!
