Burnley’s Tom Anderson loaned out for eighth time

Burnley defender Tom Anderson is joining Doncaster on loan until the end of the season.

The 24-year-old centre back has only just been recalled from a loan spell at League Two club Port Vale where he made 24 appearances.

Anderson, who is a product of Burnley’s youth academy, has yet to make a competitive first-team appearance for the Premier League side and has instead been sent out on loan to a number of clubs.

Doncaster will be his eighth stint on loan having previously spent time at Barrow, Hyde, Halifax Town, Lincoln, Carlisle, Chesterfield and then Port Vale.

Anderson’s current contract with Burnley expires at the end of the season.
