Defensive ace set for Minstermen

Highly-rated defender Dean Jarvis is expected to sign for York City ahead of the closure of the transfer window on Thursday.

"I've been talking with Gary Mills about trying to get Jarvis over to York" - Paul Kee
The 20-year-old Institute left-back was travelling to York to play in a friendly game against Blackburn Rovers on Tuesday afternoon. He was set to be accompanied by his manager Paul Kee after being in recent discussions with City boss Gary Mills over a move to Bootham Crescent.

Jarvis is a Northern Ireland Under-21 international and spent a few days training with the Minstermen a couple of weeks back.

Several other clubs were keen on the ex-Aberdeen defender, including Premiership Norwich City, but it is York currently the favourites for his signature.

Meanwhile, Jarvis' Institute team-mate, winger Michael McCrudden, is also wanted by Mills, although Kee believes he can hold onto the former Newcastle United and Northern Ireland Under-19 international until the end of the season.

"I've been talking with Gary Mills this morning about trying to get Jarvis over to York," Kee told the Derry Journal. "There were a couple of clubs interested in signing him, one was Norwich City who are looking for an under-21 left-back for their Development squad, and there was also interest from Colchester and Stevenage but Stevenage dropped out when they were made aware that York City were interested.

"Gary sees Dean as a player capable of competing for the left-back spot at the minute but he's also interested in McCrudden," he added. "He's aware of our situation and knows we need Michael to stay to the end of the season, but the player is still very much on York City's radar."
