Burnley's squad has been boosted by the return of three young guns who had been out on loan.
Defender, Kevin Long (pictured above) has returned from Accrington Stanley despite Reds gaffer, John Coleman wanting to retain his services.
According to the Lancashire Telegraph he will not be returning to Stanley this season
It is thought Eddie Howe wants to look at the talented prospect again in training before deciding whether to send him out on loan again but this time to a League one club.
The 21-year-old had an impressive six-month spell on loan at the Crown Ground, making 24 appearances and scoring four goals, including the second in Tuesday`s 4-0 win over Macclesfield Town.
His loan spell though expired after that game and it does not look like it will be renewed.
Burnley were also astute in not giving Stanley permission to play Long in the FA Cup so he won't be cup tied and could even be in contention for a place against Norwich at Carrow Road this Saturday in the third round tie.
Howe talking about Long's return said:
'Kevin has done really well at Accrington. He has been a really consistent performer for them and scored a few goals as well,'
'We will have a look at him and see how he has progressed. We will see how much he has improved and where he's at right now and then perhaps look to get him back out, maybe to League One.'
20 year striker,Wes Fletcher has also returned after completing his one month loan spell at Crewe Alexandra. He scored just the one goal in his six appearances.
The final young gun to return is Joe McKee, a first year professional and member of the development squad. The striker was loaned out to SPL club, St Mirren but has featured in only two games in both cases coming on from the bench.
