The 19-year-old joined the Swans from Brad­ford in the sum­mer, where he had al­ready made 20 ap­pear­ances for the first team.

McBurnie also had a loan spell at Non-League Ch­ester last sea­son, where he scored five times in 14 ap­pear­ances.

Exiles man­ager John Sheri­dan said he wanted to bring in an­other striker, with Zak An­sah, 21, set to re­turn to Charl­ton as his loan came to an end.
