Liverpool striker Nathan Eccleston pens one-month loan deal at Rochdale

Liverpool striker Nathan Eccleston has today completed a one-month loan move to League One side Rochdale.

The 20-year-old has yet to feature under new manager Kenny Dalglish and his move to Spotland will be the third loan spell of his career after time at Huddersfield and Charlton Athletic.

Dale were looking short on striking options following the return of David Ball to Peterborough and Eccleston will provide a perfect partner for Ashley Grimes who has netted eight times following his summer move.

Manager Steve Eyre was delighted with the capture when he spoke to the club’s official website: “I’m very grateful to Liverpool for their co-operation. He’s a very good man, he’s a got a lot of fire in his belly, a lot of talent and he loves to score a goal.”

The Greater Manchester side currently sit 18th but with a trip to bottom side Exeter City on Saturday they will be optimistic of moving up the table.

Eccleston is expected to go straight into first-team contention for the game and will be keen to open his account for his new club.
