Lincoln City have signed Southampton midfielder Jake Hesketh on loan for the rest of the League One campaign.

West Bromwich Albion left-back Max Melbourne, 20, has also joined the Imps on loan until 6 January.

Melbourne is yet to feature at first-team level for the Baggies, but has had loan spells in Scotland with Partick Thistle and Ross County.

Hesketh, 23, spent last season on loan at Burton and MK Dons, helping the latter win promotion to the third tier.

His two Premier League games for the Saints came in 2014, and he has also appeared in the Europa League.

"Having played against Lincoln last season when I was at MK Dons, I could see what the club was about," he told the club website.
