League One club Bristol Rovers have signed Stoke City defender Ryan Sweeney on loan for the rest of the season.

The 19-year-old former AFC Wimbledon player joined the Premier League side in 2016 for an undisclosed fee, thought to be in the region of £250,000.

Sweeney, who has previously represented the Republic of Ireland at Under-18 level, made 13 league appearances for the Dons, but is yet to play for Stoke.

Rovers boss Darrell Clarke said: "He'll be a valuable addition to our squad."
