DONE DEAL: ​Bury sign Burnley defender Alex Whitmore

Bury have signed Burnley defender Alex Whitmore on loan until 4 January 2018.

Former Wigan Athletic striker Chris Sang has also joined Bury on a two-year deal.

Eighteen-year-old Sang did not turn out for the Latics' first team before his release from the club this summer.

Whitmore, 21, who is yet to make a senior appearance for the Clarets, spent 2016-17 on loan at Morecambe.

"I'm happy to get Alex in before the start of the season, he's a no-nonsense defender," boss Lee Clark said.
