Chesterfield have sealed the loan signing of Manchester City youngster Clayton McDonald in a truly last minute deal.
The club had been awaiting confirmation from The Football League that the initial one-month emergency loan deal was completed in time, and have since been informed that they beat Monday's 5pm deadline by just one minute.
The 20-year-old City reserve captain will go straight into the squad for Chesterfield's weekend clash with Lincoln City, after their midweek game with Aldershot was called off.
McDonald had turned out for Macclesfield earlier in the season but the 6ft 6ins defender will now be focussed on chasing a play-off place with the Spireites.
