HEREFORD have welcome back midfielder back Maziar Kouhyar on a one-month loan deal from York City. 

The 26-year-old played for the Bulls under Josh Gowling in the 2021-22 c campaign before helping York gain promotion into the National League. 

“It’s just a month at the moment and something we’ll look at, again it’s out of our hands,” said Hereford boss Paul Caddis. 

“We don’t have a recall on him. York had looked at the work that we’d done with Tom Pugh, he’s done really well. 

“Maziar is going to come and get some games. He’s obviously got to earn the right to get in the team at the moment. 

“We know what he can bring, the quality that he’s got and it always helps that he’s got a feel-good factor with the supporters.” 

Kouhyar comes in to replace Tom Pugh after the young midfielder was recalled by parent club Scunthorpe. 

Pugh had been on a season-long loan with Hereford and scored against King’s Lynn Town on Saturday before being recalled. 

“I always planned for Pugh to go back at some point,” added Caddis. 

“It changed every week, two weeks ago it could have been someone else (replacing Pugh). Maziar we definitely looked at, it was probably still done when Pugh was here. 

“We wanted some more threats in the wide areas. We also tried to get another forward in, we had another forward in until the last minute. 

“We want to try and get as many options as we can up the top end of the pitch.” 

The Bulls have also brought in Ghanaian-born midfielder Collins Tanor who has signed on a dual-registration deal with Stratford Town. 

 The 26-year-old spent four years with Manchester City as a youngster before spending several seasons playing in Europe. 

Meanwhile, Jack Tolley has also left the club after his short-term deal expired.
