Young defender Matty Platt will spend the 2018-19 campaign on loan at near neighbours Accrington Stanley.

The Academy graduate will remain with the League One new boys until the end of the 2018-19 season and is available to play in all cup competitions for the Reds, aside from any game against Rovers.

The 20-year-old centre back previously earned experience during a loan spell at Barrow back in 2017, appearing eight times for the Bluebirds.

A highly-rated defender, Platt put pen-to-paper on a new deal which will keep him at Ewood Park until June 2019 and helped the Under-23s team to promotion in Premier League 2 last term.

Good luck at Stanley, Matty!
