LOAN MOVE: Wes Fletcher

Wes Fletcher is set to celebrate his birthday with a loan move to League One promotion chasers Yeovil Town.

The Clarets’ frontman is travelling to the West Country with a view to completing a deal running for an initial month.

Fletcher has been limited to just two senior appearances for Burnley since emerging from the club’s youth team.

But the striker – who is 22 today – has gained Football League experience during loan spells at Crewe Alexandra, Accrington Stanley, Stockport County and Grimsby Town.

And after recovering from an ankle injury to deliver a two-goal display in a Development Squad friendly last week, the Merseysider will now be looking to help fire the in-form Glovers closer to promotion.
