Four Clarets have secured loan moves.

Defenders Danny Lafferty and Cameron Dummigan have re-joined Oldham Athletic on loan.

And Development Squad duo Luke Hendrie and Conor Mitchell and have joined York City and Bradford Park Avenue respectively.

Lafferty returns to Boundary Park on a month’s loan after making five appearances in October before suffering a shoulder injury, while Dummigan has extended his youth loan for a similar period.

The young Irishman made nine outings for the League 1 club in his debut loan, including a Football League debut at Gillingham in October.

Defender Hendrie links-up with the Minstermen for another emergency month’s loan after spending October with Hartlepool, where he made three appearances.

Goalkeeper Mitchell, meanwhile, heads back to Yorkshire on a month’s youth loan, after impressing while at Sheffield FC in August.

Mitchell, 19, extended his contract with the Clarets in December 2015, after making the first team bench for the first time at Middlesbrough earlier that month.

The Northern Ireland U19 international could feature in a handful of games for The Avenue, in a month where Martin Drury’s side play eight matches.

Mitchell will compete for the number one jersey with former Claret Jon Stewart in the National League North, England’s sixth tier.

Finally, Defender Luke Conlan has returned to Turf Moor from his six-month loan at Scottish Championship side St. Mirren.

The Northern Ireland U21 international made four appearances for the Buddies.
