Freddie Draper has joined Gainsborough Trinity on loan until the end of the season.

The 17-year-old has made nine first-team appearances for City after making his senior debut against Sheffield Wednesday in October.

Imps director of football Jez George said: "This is a sensible, short-term solution to get a Freddie a consistent run of games between now and the end of the season.

"Obviously our partnership with Gainsborough, the fact that Tom Shaw is their head coach, a figure who Freddie sees on the training ground at Lincoln everyday, plays a massive part in that decision.

"Freddie knows how highly we rate him, and how we see him as a future Lincoln City number nine, but in the short term his opportunities will be limited with the first team so this makes total sense."
