Stoke have re-signed Charlton defender Jonathan Fortune on loan until the end of the season.
The 26-year-old moved to the Britannia Stadium in January as a replacement for Reading-bound Michael Duberry.
However, Addicks boss Alan Pardew recalled the central defender after a spate of injuries and suspensions at the relegation-threatened squad.
Fortune impressed in his first spell with Tony Pulis' side and Potters assistant manager Dave Kemp is delighted to see him return to the Championship side.
"We are delighted he is back - we never wanted to lose him in the first place," Kemp told the club's official website.
"He was exceptional for us before and hopefully he can do the same this time round."
