Walsall have taken Stoke City midfielder Florent Cuvelier on a month's loan.

Cuvelier, who has been a regular in City's Under-18 and reserve teams since his arrival from Portsmouth in the summer of 2010, will now get the chance to boost his development by performing at League level over the next month.

"This is a fantastic opportunity for Flo to make the step up to a higher level," said manager Tony Pulis to Stoke's website. "As we have seen with our younger players, it is of enormous benefit to them to go out on loan to gain that experience."
