Stockport County have signed Aston Villa youngster Jamie Ward on a month's loan.
The 19-year-old winger could be set to make his Hatters debut against North West rivals Bury at Gigg Lane on Tuesday evening.
The Northern Ireland youth international has been a regular in Villa's reserves in the last two seasons and the teenager is delighted to have secured the chance to earn first-team football with the Edgeley Park club.
"I got a call from my manager Kevin McDonald on Friday saying that County were interested in taking me on loan and I had no hesitation in agreeing to move to Edgeley Park," Ward told the club's official website.
