Stoke City have completed two loan deals as the transfer window closes, with one player arriving at the club and another departing.

Benik Afobe has joined Bristol City on loan for the rest of the season.

The 26-year-old striker completed the formalities of his switch to the Robins shortly before the 5pm deadline.

Meanwhile, the Potters have brought in winger Mark Duffy on loan until next summer.

He has become the club's tenth signing of the window.

The 33-year-old was a key figure in United’s automatic promotion push last season, contributing six goals in 36 league appearances.

Manager Nathan Jones told the club's official website: "Mark is a player with real quality. We had to beat off a lot of competition to get him which speaks volumes for his qualities as a player.

“He will give us another dimension because he can play wide or as an attacking midfielder.

“He’s got vast experience and he’s coming from a club that has just got promoted so we’re delighted to bring in a player like him.”
