Josh Mullin has today joined Championship side Hamilton Academical on loan until the end of the season.
The midfielder moves to the Fountain of Youth Stadium to hook up with Accies manager Brian Rice, with the Lions having the option recall Josh in the winter transfer window.
Manager David Martindale said: “I just want to thank Josh for all his hard work since he came back to the football club. It hasn’t quite worked out this Summer with Josh missing a large part of pre-season after being unable to make the Spain trip due to family reasons and then on our return, contracting COVID.
“This has led to limited game time for Josh and resultantly, he’s asked to go out on loan to play games. I have a great relationship with Josh personally and would never stand in a players way if they feel that they want to go out on loan for more game time.
“We have an option to recall Josh in the winter window and I’m sure he will go out to Hamilton and do well for them in the Championship.
“We do have a few options in wide areas at present, albeit, we have identified a few targets with Josh’s departure leaving a void for us to fill. We hope to announce a signing in the next week or so.”
Good luck at Hamilton, Josh!
