Diao completes Stoke loan switch
Salif Diao
Senegal international Diao is out of favour at Anfield
Liverpool midfielder Salif Diao has joined Stoke on a three-month loan.

Senegal midfielder Diao, 29, was a 5m signing for Liverpool in 2002 but has never been a first-team regular and was loaned out to Portsmouth last season.

City boss Tony Pulis told the club website: "We've been monitoring Salif for a while now and have had very good reports about the kid.

"He's played 40 games in his first season at Liverpool, he's still only 29 and he's desperate to play football."

He is set to be joined at the Britannia Stadium by Sunderland's Rory Delap, who is also on the verge of a loan move.

Stoke recently signed Aston Villa midfielder Lee Hendrie on loan as they look to climb the Championship table following a disappointing start to the season.
