McDonald makes Iron loan move

Published Add your comment

Burnley midfielder Kevin McDonald has joined Scunthorpe on a month's loan and could make his debut in Saturday's home clash with Doncaster.

McDonald, 21, has figured just once for the Clarets so far this season, coming off the bench to score in the Carling Cup win at Morecambe in August.

Boss Brian Laws is happy for McDonald to join the club he used to manage, saying: "It does them a favour but it does us a favour. Kevin needs to get some games."

He added: "They play a style of football that will suit Kevin down to the ground so it's a great move for him as well.

"He's playing in the Championship so we can keep a close eye on him and I can keep a close eye on him because I live around the corner! He's not disappearing too far."

Meanwhile, Laws is also hoping to complete two further outward loan deals before the weekend.
