Hednesford Town Football Club are pleased to announce the arrival of Stoke City goalkeeper Mate Deczki on a youth loan until the end of the current season.
This move arrives after the loan deal of fellow Stoke goalkeeper Josef Bursik came to an end following our game against Farsley Celtic.
The highly rated Deczki, 18, was born in Hungary and joined the Potters in the summer of 2016 from Hungarian side Debreceni VSC – DLA Jugend for a fee of £75,000.
After talks between the two clubs last month, which indicated Bursik would be returning to Stoke, we were delighted to hear that the Championship side would be offering us the services of Deczki – who has been training with the Pitmen for the past two weeks.
Along with Bursik, forward Michael Howard has also returned to Preston North End after his six month loan deal came to an end. While Dan Cockerline’s loan deal from Southport is due to end on January 6th.
The Pitmen are in discussions with the parent clubs of both Howard and Cockerline though regarding potential extensions to their loans.
