Richard Peniket (Fulham - striker) Will spend the next month on loan at Hereford as he looks to continue his footballing education.  The Wales U21 international has been in and around the Fulham reserves this season, so a step up to League One will be a very good test.

Christian Ribeiro (Bristol City - defender) Has joined Carlisle Utd on loan until Christmas.  The Wales U21 international has found opportunities hard to come by after returning from injury.  "He wants to show that he's ready to go, he's hungry, and we think he'll fit in with how we like to do things." Gregg Abbott, Carlisle manager.

David Stephens (Hibs - defender) And his fellow defenders kept a clean sheet as they frustrated Celtic last weekend.  The Wales U21 international has been a first team regular this season and his move North of the border seems to have suited him.

Casey Thomas (Swansea City - striker) Has signed for Colchester Utd on emergency until January.  The Wales U21 international will go straight into the squad for the game against Tranmere.
