Luke On Loan At Stoke

MIDFIELDER Luke Chadwick has joined Stoke City on loan until the end of the year.

The former Manchester United trainee arrived at Upton Park on a free transfer in August 2004, having served loan spells with Royal Antwerp, Reading and Burnley.

A former England Under-21 star, Luke made 36 appearances for Alan Pardew's first-team last season, scoring one goal in the 1-1 draw against Leeds United at Upton Park in December 2004.

Luke found his first-team opportunties limited towards the end of the season, missing out on a place in the Play-off Final team.
