DUNFERMLINE have made their fifth signing of the January transfer window by recruiting Wolverhampton Wanderers winger Dan Armstrong on loan.

The 20-year-old, who moved to Molineux in 2015, has agreed a temporary switch until the end of the season and becomes the club's third recruit in as many days.

He follows Dundee's James Vincent and Sunderland's Tom Beadling in joining Athletic after impressing boss Allan Johnston after training with the club.

Armstrong, who has featured in Scotland squads at youth level, came through the ranks of Hamilton Academical's academy, which has produced internationalists such as Crystal Palace's James McArthur and Everton's James McCarthy.

He signed a three-year-deal with the Midlands club when he moved south and has featured for their under-21 and under-23 squads.

Johnston commented: "Daniel's got a lot of pace; he can play both sides, he's a wide player or he can play in behind the striker. He's got pace, he can go by people, he's got good movement off the ball and hopefully he brings something different to what we've already got in the team."

After he signed for Wolves, their head of football development and recruitment Kevin Thelwell was quoted in the Express and Star as saying: "He's highly technical, he's very good with his feet, he can play wide and he can play off the front.

"He's got good pace and has a natural left foot which is hard to come by. I think he'll be a really good addition for us."

We'll have an interview with Armstrong, and Pars other recruits, in tomorrow's Press Sport.
