Porritt, has been training with the Imps for the last few weeks and could be tested by Chris Moyses as the Lincoln City manager begins to prepare for next season; after their 2-1 defeat to Kidderminster Harriers last weekend all but ended their promotion hopes.

At Huddersfield Town, he is currently a second year scholar, which is why he has joined Lincoln City on work experience rather than a youth loan deal.

The loan window slammed shut yesterday at 5pm, however, the Imps would still have been able to sign Porritt because he isn’t on a professional deal at the ‘Yorkshire Club’.

The youngster joined Huddersfield Town at Under-13 level from junior side Howden and made his Under-18s debut in the 2014/15 season.

The versatile full-back, who can also operate in midfield, will take the number 25 shirt for the Imps.

Speaking in yesterday’s press conference Chris Moyses said: “We’ve got a lad coming in from Huddersfield until the end of the season, so we will be able to have a look at him.”
