Stokes set for Blades switch

Published Add your comment

Sunderland striker Anthony Stokes is expected to join Coca-Cola Championship side Sheffield United on loan until January later on Friday.

The Republic of Ireland international has travelled to South Yorkshire with a view to sealing the temporary switch after struggling to break into the first team at the Stadium of Light on a regular basis.

Black Cats manager Roy Keane has decided to let Stokes head for Bramall Lane to get some much-needed football under his belt. "I had a chat with him yesterday (on Thursday) and it looks like he will probably go there until January," he said.

Keane's striking options have been boosted with £6million frontman Kenwyne Jones and youngster Martyn Waghorn close to returning from injury.
