Accrington boss John Coleman has completed the signing of Burnley striker Wes Fletcher on loan until January.

Fletcher, 20, has previous experience at League Two level following loans at Grimsby and Stockport in the past two seasons.

He will now bolster John Coleman's attacking options for the next five months and could make his debut in Tuesday's home game with Bradford.

Clarets boss Eddie Howe said: "He is a player with talent. We feel he is part of the future here, which why we gave him a two-year deal.

"Kevin Long is already there and the locality is ideal for us to keep an close eye on his progress.

"Hopefully he will go there and score some goals and come back that much better prepared to challenge for a place in our first team."
