Aberdeen-born Burgess, 21, had spent the first half of the campaign on loan with third tier outfit Oldham where he made 31 appearances before the deal expired.

The central defender is available to make his debut for Bury on Saturday when they face Scunthorpe United.

Oldham are currently last in League One, while Bury sit four spots above them in 20th.

Burgess, who has represented Australia at under-20 and under-23 level, has previously had loan spells at Ross County and Cheltenham.
