Burnley have signed 22 year old Millwall striker, Josh McQuoid on a 93-day loan deal and the Northern Ireland international is immediately available to play in the game against Derby County at Turf Moor this Saturday.
This looks a good move by Eddie Howe, who also managed the player during his time at Bournemouth. Howe has clearly moved quickly to give his squad more options in attack following the hamstring injury to Martin Paterson and the return of Sam Vokes to Molineux.
McQuoid joined the Cherries as a youth in 2006 to make his senior début in May 2007.
The Southampton-born forward signed for Millwall on loan in November 2010, and completed his permanent move to the New Den in January 2011 for an undisclosed fee thought to be around £550,000.
"From last week we have lost three players in Sam, Junior and Pato - three attacking options for us," said Howe.
"We felt we needed to bring one in. I thought that was vitally important and one really that played a various number of positions.
"I think that was crucial to us, which is why Josh became so attractive.
"He is a very talented young player who did really well for me at Bournemouth and scored a lot of goals and deservedly got a move to a higher level. I`m delighted to have him with us," added Howe.
"He`s a versatile type of forward. He can play anywhere across the front line and he can play wide as well, which adds to his attractiveness for us.
"He`s quick, athletic and he`s got a good attitude as well, so I hope he will do well for us."
He has been given squad shirt number 19.
