Blackpool defender Ashley Eastham has joined npower League One outfit Bury on a six-month loan deal.

Eastham's arrival will boost the Shakers after they lost centre-back Mark Hughes to a hamstring injury which is expected to sideline him for around six weeks.

Eastham, a product of Blackpool's youth system, goes straight into Bury's squad for Saturday's home clash with Charlton.
