Kevin McDonald has joined Championship rivals Scunthorpe United on a month`s loan.

The Scotland Under 21 international midfielder moves to Glanford Park hoping for the chance of more regular competitive football playing for ‘The Iron’

Brian Laws talking about the move said:

“It does them a favour but it does us a favour. Kevin needs to get some games.

“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.”

McDonald looks to be the first of up to three fringe players who could be leaving Turf Moor on loan with David Edgar being another possible loan after yesterday’s news.

It is thought that Laws hopes to complete another two loan deals by the end of today.

McDonald, 21, has played just the once for Burnley so far this season, coming off the bench to score in Burnley`s Carling Cup win at Morecambe back in August.
