Partick Thistle have sealed a move for Stoke City defender Andy Wilkinson on a six-month loan deal.

City boss Tony Pulis is keen for the young defender to gain some first team experience and sees Partick as an ideal club to help aid his development.

Wilkinson made his senior debut as a substitute in the LDV Vans in October 2001 and enjoyed a loan spell at Conference side Telford United during 2003/04.

Meanwhile, the club have told former Kilmarnock midfielder Alan Mahood he will not be handed a contract.
