Burnley have signed Aston Villa midfielder Peter Whittingham, 20, on an initial one-month loan deal.

"We're delighted to add an England Under-21 international to the squad," said Clarets manager Steve Cotterill.

"Obviously we have a necessity for a midfielder because we only have two central midfield players at the moment.

"It's for a month, but we'll sit down after that and maybe extend it. If he can come in and do the same as Gary Cahill, he'll be an excellent signing."
