Clarets’ striker Alex MacDonald has joined Inverness Caledonian Thistle on loan until the end of the season.

MacDonald’s move, which is subject to international clearance, means a second spell in the Scottish Premier League for the 20-year-old.

The former Burnley youth team player of the year spent a spell on loan with Falkirk last season and heads north again for the chance of first-team football.

MacDonald, who won his first cap at Scotland under-21 level last December, is top scorer for the Clarets’ reserves but has not been able to add to his eight first-team appearances this season.

Caley boss Terry Butcher, whose team is fifth in the SPL, said: “We’ve had a look at Alex in training and he’s shaped up very well.

“We’re pleased he’s agreed to see out the season with us and he adds to our attacking resources.”
