Wycombe Wanderers sign Craig Eastmond and Chris Hackett on loan

Craig Eastmond

Wycombe Wanderers have completed loan deals for midfielders Craig Eastmond and Chris Hackett from Arsenal and Millwall respectively.

Eastmond, 21, will join until the end of the season, while 28-year-old Hackett has signed for one month.

Eastmond has made nine senior appearances for the Gunners, including four in the Premier League.

Hackett arrived at the Lions from Hearts in 2006 and has amassed 145 games for the London club.

The former Oxford United man played five times for Exeter during a loan spell earlier this season and has made six Millwall appearances this campaign.

Chairboys boss Gary Waddock told the club website: "He's got experience of playing at Championship level and knows League One after his loan spell at Exeter earlier this season.

"We're looking for a spark and hopefully these two additions will provide that."

Eastmond was part of the Arsenal youth team that won the 2008-09 FA Youth Cup and Premier Academy League and spent a six-game loan spell at Millwall last term.

"It's a very good move for me," said Eastmond, who can also play at right-back.

"I just want to play as many games as possible and help Wycombe move up the table.

"I'm always ready for a new challenge, that's what football is all about."
