Stoke have agreed to let Nathaniel Wedderburn and Tom Soares go out on loan. England Under-19 international Wedderburn has joined Hereford United for a five-week period, while Soares has moved to Sheffield Wednesday for a month.

It is the second time Wedderburn has gone out on loan at League Two level after playing nine games for Notts County last season.

Soares, 23, also had a spell on loan last season when he made 11 League appearances for Charlton Athletic in the Championship.
