Coventry City youngster signs for The Alex
Crewe Alexandra have today confirmed the loan signing of Coventry City full back Chris Hussey.
The initial deal runs until 1st January 2011 and Hussey, 21, will be in the squad that travels to Morecombe on Saturday. Hussey can play in either full back roll and will provide much needed cover, although Matt Tootle is now expected to be fit for the League 2 clash following a recent illness.
Hussey has played just 31 minutes for Coventry this season and the former AFC Wimbledon young player of the year will be hoping to improve his fitness as he seeks first team football.
Crewe were previously linked with Sheffield United defender Rob Kozluk after boss Dario Gradi confirmed he was in talks with a full back with Championship experience.
Hussey is likely to be given the number 28 shirt during his stay at Gresty Road.
