He has also played for Oldham and Whitehaven already this season in League One.

Swinton coach Stuart Littler said: “I’m absolutely delighted. Gavin has been outstanding for us so far this year, and I would like to thank Ian Watson and Salford for their support in agreeing both of these loan deals.

“We have a massive month ahead and these two lads will give us some real strike power and further options within our squad. Alongside our valuable dual-registration agreement with Wigan, our great relationship with Salford continues to give us a real boost in support of our playing squad.”
