Leicester City situation mystifies Neil Danns

Neil Danns

Huddersfield Town loan signing Neil Danns says it is a "mystery" why parent club Leicester City do not see him in their plans.

The 30-year-old midfielder, who spent time on loan with Bristol City earlier in the season, has signed a deal until the end of the campaign with Town.

"There was a lot of speculation I'd had a fall-out with the manager but that's not true," he told BBC Radio Leeds.

"It's been a bit of mystery what's happened there really."

He added: "The last game I started for them I was captain and everything was going well but obviously the gaffer has other plans.

"I'm old enough to respect that people have their own ideas so I'm just going to come here and give it my all."

Danns has not featured for the Foxes since their surprise 4-2 League Cup defeat by Burton on 28 August.

The former Colchester, Birmingham City and Crystal Palace man is now hoping he can help his new club, Huddersfield, end a run of 10 Championship matches without victory.

"I've got no doubts they can turn it around, there's a lot of talented players at this club," he continued.

"Looking at the table we're not that many points off the play-offs, and I'm coming in with a positive frame of mind that we can not only stay in the league but challenge towards the top."

He could make his Terriers debut in Saturday's home game against Birmingham.
