Wes could be Stockport bound

14 October 2010 10:45
Striker Wes Fletcher could be ready to signed for Stockport County on a month's loan and join them as they prepare for a home game against Barnet in League Two on Saturday. Fletcher made his Burnley debut as a late substitute in the Carling Cup win against Morecambe in August and is currently the leading goalscorer in the reserve league having netted five times for Burnley this season.He had a month out at Grimsby at the beginning of this year when he scored once in a defeat against Rotherham, but since then he's been more involved with the first team at Burnley and is far better equipped for a spell in League Two.Brian Laws said earlier this week: "Wes impressed me in pre-season, hence my thoughts on including him in the squad over the summer, and he did really well with us."He's strong, he's worked extremely hard on the physical side of things and he's got an eye for goal. He's a very quiet lad, he's like a Mark Hughes, quiet off the pitch, but not on it, but he's getting on with it and he's impressed us all."We have high hopes for him, but there's still a long way to go yet."Nothing has been confirmed as yet, but Fletcher is the third player Laws referred to earlier today with regard to going out on loan.
