Hylton in loan switch

ROTHERHAM United forward Danny Hylton is going out on loan in order to increase his chances of playing for the club on his return.

The 24-year-old will join Bury on a short-term deal and Millers chief Steve Evans hopes the match practice will prepare him for a return to the first-team fold at the New York Stadium.

"Young Danny has now got himself in good shape," he told the club's website.

"We've given him a little taste of first-team football in recent weeks and now he needs to have a run of consecutive first-team matches which hopefully will see him back here competing for a place."

A close-season signing from Aldershot, Hylton made his Millers debut as a substitute in the 1-0 victory at Brentford and was handed his first competitive start in the Football League Trophy win at York City last week.

He will now be looking to get more action at the Lancashire club, who yesterday parted company with manager Kevin Blackwell after a poor start in League Two.
