York City have taken Blackburn winger Andy Howarth on pre-season trial with a view to a long-term loan signing.
City manager Martin Foyle sees Howarth (21) as the likely replacement for departed right-winger Adam Smith.
"Andy's going to do all the pre-season with us with a view to a loan period," Foyle told BBC Radio York.
"He had a good loan period with Rochdale towards the end of the season. He shows his excitement and a little bit of pace, and he's a good size."
