Huddersfield Town sign Newcastle defender Tamas Kadar

Huddersfield have signed Newcastle United defender Tamas Kadar on a one-month loan.

The 20-year-old Hungary international could make his debut at home to Plymouth Argyle on Tuesday.

Manager Lee Clark told the club website: "He comes here having played in the Premier League and he is an international footballer.

"I was still at Newcastle when he signed and I worked with him there, so we know what we are getting."

Kadar, who made his Newcastle debut against Huddersfield in the Magpie's 4-3 Carling Cup victory at St James's Park in 2009, has been brought in as cover for the injured Gary Naysmith.

Clark said: "Gary Naysmith has such an unique injury that there is no timescale to it, which has led to young Liam Ridehalgh coming into the squad.

He couldn't agree to the move here quickly enough

"He has done absolutely brilliantly, but we need some natural cover there as well.

"He [Kadar] played as a central defender when he made his debut against us last season and that shows how flexible he is.

"The thing for me was the desire the lad showed - he was on the bench for Newcastle in the FA Cup on Saturday, but he couldn't agree to the move here quickly enough and collected his boots from the Newcastle training ground on Sunday before travelling up to be with our squad in preparation for Plymouth.

"He's in consideration for the Plymouth game, but we have to decide whether we start him or ease him in," Clark added.

Kadar was just 16 years old when he made his senior debut in Hungary with Zalaegerszegi TE before moving to Newcastle in 2008.

He won his first senior international cap against Lithuania in November last year.
