League Two, Burton recently extended midfielder Alex MacDonald's loan spell from Burnley until the end of the season.
His initial month-long stay at the Pirelli Stadium has been prolonged until the 8th May. This means the 22-year-old could help the club reach the play-offs final but will not be eligible should Albion be involved in the League Two play-off final.
Earlier this month two more of our Young Guns also secured loan deals. Hotshot striker, Jason Gilchrist and midfielder Luke Gallagher both joined Droylsden until the end of their season.
The Blue Square North Club will be a good test for both 18-year-olds and the experience will give them a first taste of senior football as they approach the end of their two-year scholarship deals at Turf Moor.
Gilchrist is our current top scorer in the Clarets` youth team . He made the news recently after netting a hat-trick at Old Trafford in December as Burnley knocked Manchester United out of the FA Youth Cup.
Luke Gallagher has also shown good progress in the youth team and he has already represented the Republic of Ireland at under-19 level.
"They are going there for competitive experience," said Turf Moor Academy Manager Jason Blake.
"We have a good relationship with Droylsden, who try and play football the right way, and their position in the league means we will be able to observe our players` performances and temperament and character in a team battling to stay up.
"Both of them have probably exceeded the level of competition in the Youth Alliance but now they will be playing at a competitive level and as well as training part-time with Droylsden will continue their training and development with us."
Meanwhile Blue Square Hyde have also extended the loan stay of Shay McCartan until the end of the season.
Another Burnley player at Hyde though,Tom Anderson has had his loan spell cut short by a knee ligament injury which has seen him return to Gawthorpe for treatment and rehabilitation. Gaffer, Sean Dyche said
"He has got a knee injury but the good news is it`s not as bad as we first thought,"
