Burton Albion have signed Walsall forward Ashley Hemmings on a loan deal up to and including the 27th April.
Manager Gary Rowett has moved to bring in the 23 year-old ahead of today’s loan deadline.
Beginning his career at Wolves, Hemmings has also had loan spells at Cheltenham Town, Torquay United and Plymouth Argyle, before signing permanently for Walsall in 2012.
Hemmings has been a regular in the Walsall team this season, making 32 appearances in all competitions, scoring four goals.
Rowett said: “We’re pleased to be able to bring Ashley in. We’ve been looking at him since Zeli Ismail got injured he comes with good experience.
“Ashley has lots of ability and has played at a higher level with Walsall in League One. His pace and trickery brings us a different option and we think he’ll be a good addition in the last few games of the season.”
Hemmings goes straight into the squad for Saturday’s visit to York City, and he will wear squad number 12.
