Stoke have completed their team-building plans by snapping up 16-year-old Lee Hodgson on loan from Sheffield.

Hodgson, who comes in on a 3.53 average, started last season with the Tigers before an injury forced him out.

He said: "It will be ideal for me to move to a smaller track after spending most of my time with Sheffield. The move excites me and I think I can do well for Stoke."
