Stockport County manager Gary Ablett has signed Chelsea youngster Liam Bridcutt on loan until January.
Bridcutt was captain of the Premier League club's reserve side last season, but he has yet to make his first-team debut.
He made nine appearances on loan for Watford last term and has also spent a spell on loan with Stockport's League One rivals Yeovil Town.
The 20-year-old has now been allowed out to gain further experience and will stay at Edgeley Park until 2nd January.
Hatters boss Ablett could pitch Bridcutt straight into his squad for Saturday's home game against Bristol Rovers.
