EASTLEIGH have signed Simon Heslop on a one-month loan deal, subject to the completion of paperwork.

The 30-year-old midfielder joins Richard Hill's National League side from York City, who he captained to FA Trophy victory against Macclesfield at Wembley in May this year.

Heslop played against the Spitfires last season, scoring when York visited The Silverlake in November.

He joined the Minstermen in June 2016 and has made 17 appearances so far this season, scoring three goals.

His former clubs include Barnsley and Oxford United.

Heslop said: “I’m itching to get going – it’s only initially a one-month loan, but I’m excited to get started.

“This league is all about getting a consistent run going, and I’m sure with the squad assembled, we can give it a go.”
