Stokes will join fellow on-loan mackem Greg Halford who is currently sidelined due to an injury he picked up at Doncaster.

The 20 year-old will be available for selection in Sunday's encounter with Sheffield Wednesday. Gaffer Kevin Blackwell said:

"He will give us more options on the left hand side, especially as we have got a few injury niggles. He also played in the hole and gives us great cover right across the front line."

United currently have 5 players on-loan at the club. Them being; Brian Howard, Nathan Dyer, Matthew Spring, Greg Halford and now Anthony Stokes.
