York City manager Gary Mills revealed he swooped for Salford City defender Jameel Ible earlier this week because he didn’t want to risk losing out in the summer.

The nineteen-year-old joined the Minstermen until the end of the season after impressing manager Gary Mills during the recent behind-closed-doors friendly against Scunthorpe United.
“Jameel is somebody who has been talked about in non-League circles,” Mills told The Press. “I’ve had a long non-League background and, when I’ve spoken to people, he’s been mentioned.
“I’ve really liked what I’ve seen in him and I didn’t want to let him slip through my fingers by perhaps waiting until summer,” he added. “I know there are good players at that level. All these players need is somebody to believe in them and improve them.”
