Clarets Youngster Metz Loaned to Chorley
Burnley Football Club have today confirmed that Khius Metz has joined Chorley on loan until the end of the season. Chorley are currently tenth in the Vanarama National League North and Khius could make his debut against Harrogate Town this weekend.
Metz, went out on loan last season to Altrincham but picked up an injury on his debut that ruled him out for virtually the rest of the season. He was in a third scholarship year at the time and that was extended until the end of last year because of the injury, so from that it can be assumed he’s had his deal extended again with a further injury this season.
He has scored three times this season for our U23 side and all in different competitions, the first came in the Lancashire Senior Cup at Preston and six days later he scored in the Professional Development League game at Watford. His last goal came in the superb 4-3 win at Newcastle United in the Premier League Cup.
Speaking about the signing Chorley manager Matt Jansen said, “I’m delighted to welcome Khius to our club and he comes highly recommended. His biggest strength is obviously pace and goals will be key for us as we head towards the end of the season so bolstering our striking options is vital. It’ll also be good for him to play against varied opposition in the National League North and show what he can do.”
