Corby Town have signed centre-half Clayton McDonald on a three-month loan deal from Vanarama National League North rivals Worcester City.
McDonald joined Worcester from Redditch United in the summer having started his career at Manchester City.
He also lists Port Vale, Bristol Rovers, Chesterfield and Walsall amongst his former clubs.
The addition of McDonald comes after Steelmen boss Tommy Wright sent young defender Connor Kennedy to Daventry Town for a three-month loan deal.
Wright promised changes following the 5-0 defeat at North Ferriby United last weekend, which left his team without a win in 10 matches in all competition and hovering just above the relegation zone in the league table.
The Corby boss said: “I have to back up what I said.
“I have given these boys every opportunity and I feel I have been let down but more importantly, the players have let themselves down.
“To get players in, I have to let others go. That’s the way it works.
“Clayton is an absolute giant of a man.
“He is a big central defender who will be a threat in both penalty areas for us.
“He is aggressive and he is a leader and to be honest, I think I am missing a few of those at the moment.”
McDonald will be in line to make his debut when Corby take on second-placed AFC Fylde at Steel Park when they return to action next weekend.
