Plymouth Argyle to sign Burnley's Richard Eckersely

Plymouth Argyle are set to sign Burnley's 20-year-old defender Richard Eckersley on a one-month loan deal.

"Subject to the paperwork going through, we're signing Richard," Pilgrims boss Paul Mariner told BBC Radio Devon.

Mariner needs cover for the injured Reda Johnson and Eckersley can play at full-back or in central defence.

"It's a bit of a godsend he's come to us, as it affords us a little room," added Mariner.

Eckersley started his career as a trainee at Manchester United before moving to Burnley last summer.
