Burnley defender Brian Easton rejoins Hamilton on loan

Hamilton Accies have agreed a deal to bring former defender Brian Easton back on loan from Burnley until the end of the season.

And the 21-year-old could feature against Celtic in Saturday's lunchtime kick-off at New Douglas Park.

The left-back has made only one Burnley appearance since moving last summer for an initial £350,000 fee.

With Burnley signing Danny Fox from Celtic, Easton has been pushed further back in the Turf Moor pecking order.

"I am delighted at this," Easton told the Accies website. "I have continued to follow the club's results this season and have been at three of the Sunday games so I know how the team have been playing.

"I thoroughly enjoy it at Burnley, who are a great club, but I have been mainly on the fringes of the first team.

"Everyone looks forward to regular first team football and I can't wait to hopefully be involved tomorrow."

Easton was one of Scotland's brightest prospects when he moved from New Douglas Park.

He has been capped for Under-21 level and has also played for the Scotland B team.

Meanwhile, the deal for striker Joel Thomas to rejoin Hamilton Accies on loan until May from Colchester United has been concluded following Fifa approval.

Thomas joined Colchester in the summer for £125,000 but has made only seven appearances for the League One side.

The striker will also be available to face Celtic.
