Stoke have signed their second loan player in a week by agreeing a six month loan for Manchester United youngster, Ryan Shawcross.

The 19 year old defender will join the path from Old Trafford trodden by Lee Martin last season as the Potters struggle to fill the gaps left by last season’s loan signings.

He’s been given the number 17 shirt and should go straight into the squad to face Cardiff at Ninian Park on Saturday.

Sunderland’s Stephen Wright joined last week on a similar six month loan after falling out of favour at the Black Cats.
