Eve signs for Nuneaton on loan

Dale Eve, the Stoke City goalkeeper, has joined non-league side Nuneaton Town on loan until the end of the season.

Eve, 19, will be hoping to gain valuable first-team experience at the Warwickshire-based Skrill Premier team, who take on Alfreton Town away at the weekend.

The 6ft 4in goalkeeper recently returned to the Britannia Stadium after a month's loan spell with Sky Bet League Two side Fleetwood Town, where he served as back-up to first-choice goalkeeper Scott Davies.

He was rewarded for his impressive performances for the Potters' under-21s with the offer of a new two-year contract earlier this month.

Eve, who became one of Bermuda's youngest players ever when, aged 16, he appeared as a substitute in a 2-1 win over Barbados in World Cup qualifier in 2011, was the only first-year Academy scholar to be handed professional terms last summer after his eye-catching displays for Stoke under-18s.

The former Dandy Town Hornets player was recruited by Stoke after impressing their scouts while playing for Derby County's youth team.

It is understood that Manchester City had also been interested.

On the move: Eve
