Clarets Youngsters Loaned Out

Long, Ginnelly, Whitmore & Green Loaned Out

Burnley Football Club have this morning confirmed that four players have gone out on loan in order to give them first team experience.

Burnley striker Chris Long has this morning been recalled from his current loan spell at Fleetwood Town and immediately joined Bolton Wanderers on loan for the rest of the season.


The former Everton youngster scored four times in fifteen league starts for Fleetwood Town, who are level on points with Bolton Wanderers inside the Sky Bet League top four.

Bolton boss Phil Parkinson said, “I am really pleased with the addition of Chris Long. He’s a good young player and will add real pace to the team.”  Long has made eleven first team appearances for Burnley since signing from Everton in July 2015.

The Clarets have also sanctioned another three loan moves for young players ahead of the transfer deadline to allow them the chance of further first team experience.


Defender Alex Whitmore has re-joined Morecambe following a successful loan spell at the Globe Arena in the first half of the season.  Whilst winger Josh Ginnelly and forward George Green have also headed back out on loan.

Josh Ginnelly, joins FA Cup heroes and National League leaders Lincoln City for the remainder of the campaign, having recently ended a loan spell at Walsall.

Whilst George Green, will aid Salford City’s promotion push in National League North after spending time with Kilmarnock earlier this season.
