Country

England

Zak Brunt joined on loan from Sheffield United until January 2022.

Brunt, 19, is an attacking midfielder, suited to the ‘number 10’ role, who joined the Blades from Matlock Town in 2018.

He has three goals to his name this season in U23 games and was on the scoresheet nine times last season.

His football upbringing has been well-documented – in the book ‘No Hunger in Paradise’ - having had stints at Aston Villa, Manchester City and Manchester United before being offered a youth contract by Atletico Madrid after a trial, something he was unable to sign due to FIFA regulations.

He returned to England and signed for Derby County aged 14 before dropping into non-league, due to a release clause, with Matlock.
