Clarets stopper to join Championship outfit

Burnley have confirmed that defender Richard Eckersley is set to join Plymouth on a month's loan. The Clarets were recently ordered to pay Manchester United £500,000 plus add-ons for the 20-year-old stopper. With that issue now resolved Burnley boss Brian Laws is keen for the prospect to bolster his experience in the Championship. The deal is expected to be concluded on Friday meaning he could make his debut against Preston on Saturday.

"Now everything is sorted out it's important that Richard plays some games," Laws told Burnley's official website. "He will get that down there and we will keep a close eye on him and hopefully he will come back strong for the end of the season."
