Griffin back with Potters

09 Sep 2006 - 10:45:12

Portsmouth defender Andy Griffin has returned to Stoke City on a month's loan after falling out of favour at Fratton Park.

The 27-year-old started his career with the Potters before moving to Newcastle United in a £1.5million deal in January 1998.

He made 76 Premiership appearances for the Magpies before moving to Pompey on a free transfer two years ago, but has failed to break in to Harry Redknapp's first-team plans this term.

City boss Tony Pulis told the club's official website: "We're delighted to get him. Not only is Andy a quality player but he's a Stoke lad and this was his first club.

"He's excited to be rejoining us and he adds plenty to our squad.

"We've taken him on a month's loan because it looks as though both Marlon Broomes and Lewis Buxton will be out for a while yet with their injuries and we needed the extra competition at the back."
