LOAN SIGNING: Clarets Youngster Joins City

The Dollies have strengthened their defensive ranks with the loan signing of Burnley’s young central defender Dan Moss.

The 18 year old Clarets player arrives on work experience loan and is expected to feature at Hyde on Saturday.

The heart of the Lancaster defence has been a troublesome area for boss Mark Fell with long term injury to Ben Hudson and Steve Williams now deciding to take a break from the game, recently Paul Dugdale has acquitted himself superbly at centre half with Glenn Steel, but with Steele away for the next two games, Fell has brought in one of the Premier League clubs young starlets.

At 6ft 1, Moss is a powerful, combative defender who has featured for the u23 and u18 sides at Turf Moor.
