Yeovil Town winger David Poole has joined League Two side Stockport County on loan in time for their home match against Wrexham. No loan period is specified, though it would be a surprise if it was for more than a single month at this stage.
County boss Jim Gannon has already earmarked Poole for a vacant slot in his side: "David became available. He's played a number of games in the division above and he'll give us natural width on the right."
Poole has played in four games this season but has dropped slightly down the pecking order since picking up a spot of tonsilitus during a period when manager Russell Slade was formulating a consistent strategy for his team. In the past three matches, Slade has more or less selected the same players - the only exception was caused by an international call-up for Arron Davies - and at present Poole's options seem slightly limited and he needs match fitness.
The only concern for Slade will be that Poole has been the only available senior outfield player left out of the squad in recent weeks - aside from the current 'favoured' sixteen, Slade's options lie in a trio of untried teenagers - Craig Alcock, Jake Smeeton and Stephen Maher. Anthony Tonkin and Andy Lindegaard are two senior options, but both are lacking match fitness at present.
Update: 1.30pm: Stockport County's official site have now confirmed this news, specifying a one month loan period.
