RYAN Cooney has rejoined the Shrimps on a season-long loan deal from Burnley.
The 20-year-old impressed at right-back last season as he played 11 times for the Shrimps on loan after joining the club in January.
Cooney moved to Burnley from Bury where he made 29 first-team appearances for the Shakers including nine in League Two as the Shakers won promotion to League One before their financial problems.
Boss Derek Adams said: "Ryan did particularly well for us while on loan last season.
"He's a competitor, tough in the tackle, defensively very good and can get forward, putting good balls in the box.
"He needs to kick on now and do well again this year, he's received another year's contract with Burnley and we're delighted to have him on loan for the season ahead."
Cooney added: "I really enjoyed my time here last season, I had a good run of games and it was unfortunate that the season ended the way it did.
"We got called back in (at Burnley) just leading up to the Manchester City game, so I've been training for a while.
"It will be good to start this season with a fresh start. The gaffer has made some good additions to the squad and I think we'll improve."
