Loan deal for birthday boy Wes
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 play for an hour in a Development Squad friendly last week, the Merseysider will now be looking to help fire the in-form Glovers closer to promotion.
