Heckingbottom said: "Hopefully. Both sides are relaxed about it. We just don't want to put him in a poor position before the game on Sunday, so we'll wait and see what happens next week.

"We're speaking about a loan deal. He's got pace, good one v one, an enthusiasm and he's certainly got attributes that would help us.

"We've been looking because of Martin's injury. Boyle's standout quality is that pace and speed. So we wanted to replace that."
