Stockley has made 16 appearances, but only one start for Bournemouth

Accrington have signed Bournemouth striker Jayden Stockley on an initial one-month loan deal.

Stockley, 18, first featured for the Cherries aged 15, and has made four league appearances for the Cherries this season.

Accrington boss John Coleman said: "I think he's one of the youngest players to have played in the Football League.

"He's keen to go out and play football and that's what you want in lads of that age."

Coleman added: "Another striker is something we need.

"We had one in the pipeline that fell through last night and thankfully we had a couple of other options.

"We need to be addressing the fact that we haven't been scoring enough goals and that's the reason why we've brought Jayden in."

Stockley is available for Saturday's home game against Bristol Rovers on Saturday.
