Mooney joins Stoke

Last updated : 13 September 2002 By Brian Cartlidge
Mooney's chances of first-team football at Blues have become limited since the arrival of Clinton Morrison and he has been used only once this season, a brief appearance from the sub's bench in the home defeat by Blackburn Rovers.

The loan has been allowed despite the new transfer window closing on August 31st because the Football League are not covered by the regulations yet.
