Stoke close signing of Sunderland fullback Wright

Stoke City have completed the signing of Sunderland defender Stephen Wright on a five-month loan deal.

The 27-year-old began his career at Liverpool, and had two loan spells with Crewe before joining the Black Cats for £3m five years ago.

"Stephen is another very good player," first-team coach Mark O'Connor told the Potters' website. "He can play in both full-back roles, is aggressive and can get up and down the pitch."
