Under 21 ace joins Oxford United on temporary deal...
ACADEMY striker George Waring has today joined League Two promotion hopefuls Oxford United on an emergency 28-day loan.
The highly-rated frontman, who netted for the Potters Under 21s during the weekend victory against West Bromwich Albion, could be in line to make his U’s debut this evening.
The deal was ratified by the FA in time for Waring to be included in Michael Appleton’s squad for tonight’s clash against Exeter City, whereby victory would cement them in the automatic promotion spots.
The 21-year-old striker enjoyed a spell on loan with Barnsley last season where he netted six times in his 19 appearances in League One for the Tykes.
