Cheltenham Town have signed Manchester United defender Luke McCullough on a month's loan.

The 18-year-old is set to be on the bench for tonight’s home match against Rochdale, which will go ahead as planned at 7.45pm after a pitch inspection.

McCullough joined the Premier League leaders from Dungannon Swifts in his native Northern Ireland in 2010.

Well-built for his age, McCullough has represented his country at Under-16 and Under-17 level and skippered the United Academy team last season.

Cheltenham's assistant manager Neil Howarth played a key role in the first new arrival of the January window.

"Luke may be young, but he is not short of the attributes needed for first team football," Howarth said.

"He hasn't had a taste of it yet, but we've done our homework and he comes highly recommended."
