Accrington Stanley have completed loan moves for Adam Kay and Michael Symes.

Teenage midfielder Kay joins on loan for the remainder of the season from Championship outfit Burnley, while Symes arrives on a one-month deal from League Two rivals Shrewsbury.

Symes is seen as a short-term replacement for Paul Mullin, who has headed out on loan to Bradford.

Kay, meanwhile, is regarded as a promising young talent and the 19-year-old will be hoping to pick up some valuable first team experience during his time at The Fraser Eagle Stadium.

"We are happy to allow Adam out on loan to Accrington. We have a good relationship with the club and this will hopefully allow Adam to get some first-team football as the season comes to a close," said Burnley boss Owen Coyle.

"We did a similar thing with Jay Rodriguez last season at Stirling and he really benefited from the exposure."

Stanley manager John Coleman added: "Adam is a promising youngster and we look forward to him joining the squad ahead of Saturday's game (against Exeter).

"We get on great with Burnley, Owen Coyle is a great friend of the club and we look forward to continuing the relationship."
