Colchester United striker Dan Holman has joined Conference side Aldershot Town on a month's loan.

The 24-year-old signed for the U's in the summer, but has hardly featured.

He has recently returned from a similar loan spell at Wrexham where he was restricted to limited game time.

"We're hoping that Dan will be able to get some minutes on the pitch this time.

He went to Wrexham, but only played 35 minutes so he's still not where we need him to be where match fitness is concerned.

He'll now go to Aldershot and will see where it goes from there."

Ipswich Town defender Tyrone Mings has been named the SkyBet Championship's Player of the Month for September.

The 21 year old beat off competition from Norwich City striker Cameron Jerome, Blackpool goalkeeper Joe Lewis and Blackburn Rovers' Ben Marshall.

And in an awards double for Ipswich, boss Mick McCarthy was named the Championship's Manager of the Month for September, after steering the Blues to four wins and a draw over the period.

On Mings, Sky Sports’ Football League pundit Don Goodman said: “This flying full-back is showing, at 21, an athleticism and attitude that is great see.

“He can defend and he can create for his team. No wonder top-flight clubs were courting him.”

Luton Town have announced the loan signing of QPR defender Michael Harriman.

The right-back spent time on loan at Gillingham last season, and played against Liverpool in The Premier League for Rangers back in 2013.

The 21-year-old has signed for a month and will help cover for injured full-backs Paul Connolly and Curtley Williams at Kenilworth Road.

“I’m really happy to have joined Luton.

It’s a great club who did really well last season and you only need to take one look at their attendances this season to know just how big the club is.

If selected I’ll be looking forward to Saturday (against Southend United).”

Norwich City and Ipswich Town stars Cameron Jerome and Tyrone Mings are both up for the Sky Bet Championship Player of the Month awards, while Town boss Mick McCarthy is in the running for the Manager prize.

Canaries striker Jerome has been in great form since making a £1.5million move from Stoke City, scoring five goals in as many games in September.

Meanwhile, Ipswich Town have flourished since losing the East Anglian derby in August- picking up 13 points from a possible 15 last month.

Left-back Tyrone Mings has been a key part of Town's success, showing exactly why he was the subject of Premier League interest in the summer.

The 21-year-old has been a revelation after filling the gap left by Aaron Cresswell, providing assists in the wins over Brighton and Hove Albion and Wigan Athletic.

Mings and Jerome face competition from Blackburn Rovers winger Ben Marshall and former Peterborough goalkeeper Joe Lewis to land the award.

The winners will be announced tomorrow.

Norwich City have loaned out-of-favour defender Sébastien Bassong to promotion rivals Watford.

The Cameroonian hasn't featured since Neil Adams first took over in April, and he will now spend the next 93 days at Vicarage Road.

Adams had recently hinted at reintegrating Bassong back into his squad, but he has now decided against it.

“It’s important for Seb to get some first team football and keep himself fit and involved, so this is a good short-term loan move for all parties involved.”

– Neil Adams, Norwich City Manager
