League One side Crewe Alexandra have signed Stoke City midfielder Jamie Ness on loan until 5 January.

The 23-year-old's arrival follows that of Manchester City defender Greg Leigh, who signed a similar loan deal earlier this week.

Ness began his career at Glasgow Rangers, making 18 first-team appearances and scoring two goals.

He moved to Stoke on a four-year deal in July 2012, and has since spent time on loan at Leyton Orient.

The Scotland Under-21 international scored once in 14 appearances for Orient as they reached the League One play-offs last term.

His only outing for the Potters came as a substitute in a League Cup defeat by Swindon in August 2012.
