Stoke City's Mamady Sidibe joins Tranmere Rovers on loan

Tranmere Rovers have completed the loan signing of Stoke City striker Mamady Sidibe.

The Mali international, who has struggled to hold down place in the Potter's first-team due to injury setbacks, will join the Whites until the end of the season.

"He's the big target man I've been looking for and we have beaten quite a few teams to get him," Tranmere boss Ronnie Moore told the club's official website.

"He's an experienced striker who leads the line well. He will cause defenders problems and he will give us extra height defending set-pieces too.

"I think he can do a really good job for us at this level and he is a big signing for the club."

Sidibe recently completed a loan stint with Championship outfit Sheffield Wednesday, scoring once in 10 appearances.

Meanwhile, Rovers skipper James Wallace is likely to miss the remainder of the season due to a knee problem that has kept him out of action since early December.
