Jack Diamond has re-joined Harrogate Town on a season-long loan deal.

Lee Johnson had admitted earlier in the month that the winger could head out on loan to develop his game:

It’s something we’ve discussed with Jack. We’ve talked about a loan. I do believe that to develop a player, you need 25 starts throughout the season, whether that’s Under-23s, first team or a loan.

That has proved to be the case, with the arrival of Leon Dajaku freeing up Diamond to head back to the EnviroVent Stadium.

The 21-year-old had a successful loan spell with Harrogate during the 2019-20 season, scoring in the play-off final as the club were promoted to League One.

Harrogate are currently in second place in the fourth tier, winning three and drawing one of their first four games.
