Burnley X-Files: Trotman is a Terrier

Former Clarets youth player, 22 year old defender, Neal Trotman has joined Huddersfield on loan from Preston North End until the end of the season.

Huddersfield boss, Lee Clark who was recently linked with the managerial position at Turf Moor said:

"He is very powerful and quick and he attacks the ball very well in both penalty areas with his head and his feet. He is what you would call a proper, out and out defender. He gives us further good options in the backline."

Trotman was released by Burnley at the age of 18 in the summer of 2006 and was soon after signed by Oldham Athletic.

The central defender signed for Preston North End in January 2008 for a fee of 500,000 agreeing a three year deal.

His time at Preston though has so far not been too successful having suffered a number of injuries and been away of loan spells first to Colchester United and then this season joined Southampton on loan in August 2009 until January 2010.

Trotman returned from St Marys this month

He is therefore now starting his third loan spell away from Deepdale. The deal can be extended beyond the regular season should Huddersfield reach the play-offs and there is no recall clause in the deal.

Bit of a stop-start career for the young lad so far!

True, and I wish him well. But if he's worth half a million, how much is Clarke Carlisle worth, let alone Tyrone Mears?
