Lee Hendrie In Shock Stoke Move!
Well this one came out of the blue! Stoke City have beaten off a host of other clubs and taken Aston Villa midfielder Lee Hendrie on loan.
Crystal Palace and QPR were strongly linked this week and many thought Hendrie would re-join former Villa manager John Gregory at the hoops.
Wolves, West Brom and Southampton were all linked last season as Hendrie looks for regular football.
The 29-year-old will move to The Britannia Stadium on a two-month loan can could make his debut against Preston this weekend.
In other news Brighton are running the rule over 19-year-old Villa striker Sam Williams after taking him on a month's loan.
Their caretaker manager Dean Wilkins said 'Sam's not the experienced striker that we're after, but I think he'll be good for us. We'll take him for the month initially, and then see how it goes from there.'
