Hamilton have signed midfielder Charlie Scott on loan from Manchester United for the rest of the season.

The 20-year-old has been a regular in the Old Trafford club's Under-23 side, and this is his first loan spell.

He becomes Hamilton's fourth signing of the window, after midfielder Chrysovalantis Kozoronis, and strikers Marios Ogboe and Mickel Miller.

The versatile Scott can play in the centre of midfield and defence, and at right-back.

Meanwhile, Hamilton boss Martin Canning fears Darian MacKinnon might have played his last game of the season.

The midfielder, 32, suffered a knee injury during Saturday's defeat by Dundee and has damaged his medial ligament.

"Darian is looking likely he will be out for the rest of the season, if not a real prolonged period anyway," said Canning. "You are talking best case two months."
