Stockport County have signed Salford City duo Devante Rodney and Tom Walker on loan deals.

Both have joined the Hatters until January, as announced by their official club website.

Rodney and Walker have found first team opportunities with Salford hard  to come by since their promotion to League Two.

Stockport, who are now the home to ex-Wolves and Barnsley winger Adam Hammill, are currently 18th in the National League.

Rodney joined Salford in June last year having previously had spells as a youngster at Manchester City, Sheffield Wednesday and Hartlepool United. He has since played 27 times for Graham Alexander’s side, scoring four goals.

He was loaned out to FC Halifax Town for part of last season and bagged seven goals in 14 appearances for them.

Walker, who has played for Stockport before in 2017, returns to Edgeley Park after two years away. He has previously played for Bolton Wanderers and FC United of Manchester.

He was snapped up by Salford in January 2018 and has been part of their squad who have achieved back-to-back promotions from the National League North to the Football League.

Stockport boss Jim Gannon has commented on this double coup to their official club website: “I am delighted to be able to announce the signings of Devante and Tom, as both are proven winners at this level.”

“We’ve had our eye on Devante for some time, and I’m really pleased to add him to the squad, as he has an eye for goal and offers a different option to our existing front men. We have also been monitoring Tom Walker very closely, because we always felt he had the capacity to mature into a very good player.”
