Lincoln sign Delano Sam-Yorke and Mitch Austin from Cambridge

Lincoln City have signed striker Delano Sam-Yorke and winger Mitch Austin on loan from Conference Premier rivals Cambridge United.

Sam-Yorke, 24, has scored twice in 16 appearances for Cambridge this season, the majority as a substitute.

He will stay with Lincoln until 5 April, while 22-year-old Austin has joined on an initial one-month loan.

Both players will go into the Imps' squad for Saturday's home game against leaders Luton Town.

"We wanted to make sure they went to a club in our league. It's a good opportunity for both players to get some minutes [on the pitch]," Cambridge director of football Jez George told the club's website.
