The Bulls have signed Fulham defender James Musa on a month-long loan deal.

The youngster arrived at Craven Cottage after impressing during the summer Olympics for New Zealand.

 

The Kiwi, whose paperwork was signed and completed on Friday morning, can play at centre-back or left-back and will be available for United's trip to Grimsby on Saturday, subject to clearance.

 

Speaking to the Official Hereford United Website Bulls boss Martin Foyle said: "We're delighted to bring in James, he's a utility player who can play in a number of positions, and he will add some real competition for places to our squad."

 

The 20-year-old was born in Plymouth, England but has represented New Zealand at U20 and U23 level, and was offered a trial by Fulham after catching their eye during a substitute appearance against Egypt at Old Trafford in the Olympics.

 

He has played for New Zealand outfit Wellington Phoenix, who play in the Australian A-League. He has also made appearances for Waitakere City in New Zealand and Team Wellington, who play in New Zealands ASB Premiership.

 

Musa made his debut for Fulham's U21 development side in a 3-0 defeat against Liverpool in October.
