Vanarama National League club Solihull Moors have completed the signing of midfielder Ben Fox on a month`s loan from SkyBet Championship side Burton Albion.

The 19-year-old is a product of the Brewers’ academy.

After spending five years coming through the ranks, Fox earned his first professional deal in the summer of 2016 and after some very encouraging performances in pre-season was rewarded with a first-team debut against Liverpool in the Carabao Cup as a substitute.

Fox joined National League North side Tamworth on loan for most of last season to help aid his development at first-team level.

He has featured for the Albion twice this season, both times in the EFL Cup where he scored his first senior goal away to Cardiff City.

Moors` manager Liam McDonald is delighted to have the services of this young attacking midfielder, who he described as excellent in the recent pre-season friendly against his side.

He said: “I have kept an eye on Ben’s progress in recent years especially last season when he had a long loan spell at Tamworth. He is a quality young player and will go straight into the squad for tomorrow’s home game against Macclesfield Town”.
