Bristol City target Danns joins Championship rivals Huddersfield
Bristol City have suffered a huge blow by missing out on Neil Danns, the midfielder who spent a successful loan spell at Ashton Gate between November and early January.
Although Danns returned to parent club Leicester last week after making nine appearances for the Robins, manager Derek McInnes was keen to negotiate a deal to bring the 30-year-old back for a second spell.
But his hopes were today dashed when Danns instead travelled north to sign for Championship rivals Huddersfield Town on loan until the end of the season.
While Danns enjoyed his time at Bristol City, it is thought he wanted to be nearer to his family, who are based on Merseyside.
McInnes must now switch his search for a creative midfielder elsewhere.
