Stoke City are sending Tom Soares and Carl Dickinson out on loan.

Soares, who only signed for the Potters on September 1st from Crystal Palace, has failed to make much of an impact in the first team and will join Championship strugglers, Charlton. Soares’ impending move to the Addicks comes as rumours go round of the Potters’ attempts to persuade Andy Gray to move from the south east London club on loan. But it’s reported that the striker would only move if a permanent deal was on the table.

Meanwhile, Dicko is off to Leeds United. The defender has found that he has slipped down the pecking order at the Brit and a spell at the League 1 club should help him gain some regular first team action
