Shea off on loan and an old player returns…
No real surprise as Brek Shea head off on loan again, joining Championship side Birmingham City until mid-December. He had a loan spell at Barnsley at the end of last season, although injury cut short a largely unremarkable loan spell.
Former player Kevin ‘Rooster’ Russell is back at the club with a coaching role at the Academy. A great signing by Lou Macari and amazingly he only stayed one season with us, but during that time became a big hit with Stoke fans.
Geoff Cameorn will be out for at least a fortnight following surgery on his groin. Better news though for Stephen Ireland who should be fit ahead of tomorrow’s game against Leicester City.
