Burton Albion's loan move for teenage Birmingham City winger Nathan Redmond has fallen through.

The Brewers announced the signing of the 16-year-old on a one-month deal earlier this month.

But the deal has collapsed as Football League rules state first-year scholars cannot sign on loan for a League club.

Manager Paul Peschisolido said: "I'm really disappointed we've now been told he won't be able to play. It's a shame because he's looked sharp in training."

A Football League spokesman said: "An oversight had been made initially but as soon as the Football League became aware of it they made the club aware."
