Danny Hylton has joined League Two side Bury on an emergency loan.

Hylton, 24, will join the Shakers on a temporary short-term deal, and Steve Evans is hoping that the match practice will prepare him for a return to the first-team fold at New York Stadium.

“Young Danny has now got himself in good shape,” manager Evans said. “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 in the Millers starting 11.

Hylton made his Millers debut in the 1-0 victory over Brentford before getting his first competitive start in the 3-0 Johnstone’s Paint Trophy win at York City and will now be looking for more games under his belt with the Lancashire-based club who yesterday parted company with manager Kevin Blackwell.
