Walsall have signed midfielder Peter Sweeney on loan from Stoke.
The Scotsman joined The Potters in the summer of 2005 but has fallen down the pecking order in recent times and spent the second half of last season on loan at Yeovil.
He has made just six appearances this term and is now heading out to Walsall to get some regular football under his belt.
Sweeney has agreed a two-month deal and is looking to make an impact in League One.
"I am determined to work my socks off for the club and do as well as I can," he told the club's official website.
"I am the sort of player who likes to get on the ball and make things happen. I am comfortable on the left of midfield or in the centre."
Sweeney is set to make his debut for The Saddlers against Northampton on Saturday, and is also eligible to play in the FA Cup.
