Stoke starlets make loan moves

Stoke starlets make loan moves

Stoke`s young starlets Florent Cuvelier and Ryan Brunt have joined Npower League One outfits Walsall and Tranmere Rovers respectively.

The duo have joined on initial one month loan deals, that give them the opportunity to gain valuable football league first team experience.

Central midfielder Florent Cuvelier moves to the Saddlers after impressing in Stoke`s 7-0 rout over Walsall`s second string last week at the Britannia Stadium.

The 19-year-old Belgium under-19 international has been a regular in both Stoke`s under 18 and reserve team squads since his arrival from Portsmouth in the summer of 2010.

Stoke manager Tony Pulis told the club`s official website: "This is a fantastic opportunity for Flo to make the step up to a higher level."

Youth academy product Ryan Brunt`s move to the Superwhites could see him make his professional debut at Prenton Park.

Striker Brunt has had two other stints away from the club after previous loan spells at non-league clubs, Nantwich Town and Luton Town.

Pulis added: "As we have seen with our younger players, it is enormous benefit to them to go out on loan to gain that experience."

Brunt could feature for Tranmere against high flyers Huddersfield on Tuesday night, whilst on the same night Cuvelier could make his debut for Walsall against Notts County.
