Blues sign Burnley striker Jutkiewicz on loan


***UPDATE 12:50pm – Jutkiewicz signs on loan until 2nd January and will wear the number 15.***

According to HITC, an agreement has been made between both clubs for the 27-year-old and the announcement is to be made soon.

Jutkiewicz has returned from a knee injury at the end of last season, but has only managed two appearances off the bench this season and one start in the EFL Cup game against Accrington. The forward has been knocked down the pecking order in Sean Dyche’s plans and they feel a loan spell will aid his return to full fitness.

Ipswich were reported to be interested in the former Everton youngster, however Blues have moved quickly to agree the loan deal.

The former Coventry man’s most successful spell was at Bolton on loan, where he scored 7 goals in 20 appearances back in the 2014/15 season.
