Stoke have completed the signings of Senegalese midfielder Amdy Faye from Charlton and also his compatriot centre back Abdoulaye Faye from Newcastle. Amdy, 31, joins on a one year contract for an undisclosed fee rumoured to be in the region of 1 million while 30 year old Abdoulaye has signed a three year deal for a fee of 2.25 million, subject to a work permit being given, which seems a formality. Amdy, who signs after a succe sful trial period is no stranger to Premier League football, having previously played at the top level for Portsmouth, Newcastle and Charlton Athletic. He spenta periodof last season on loan at Scottish giants Rangers where he made four appearances including Mats Zuccarello Jersey  one in the Champions League. The six foot tall defensive midfielder made his name at French side Auxerre, making 81 appearances and scoring three times between 1998 and 2003. The has been capped 18 times for his country, including a strong showing at the 2002 World Cup in Japan and South Korea, which attracted the attention of several clubs. It was Harry Redknapp and Portsmouth who won his signature though in August of 2003 for a fee of 1.5 million after reportedly locking him in a room and  Mats Zuccarello Women Jersey refusing to let him out until he signed. He moved to Newcastle United in 2005 and then to Charlton the year after, and in total has made well over 100 appearances in British football. He was arrested in January 2007 surrounded in conroversy regarding histime at Portsmouth, but no charge was made. He has been handed the number 19 shirt and will be eligible to play in Mikael Granlund Jersey  tomorrows Premier League match at Bolton.The similarities between Amdy and Abdoulaye go a lot deeper than just the name. The two were born in the Senegalese capital of Dakar le s than a year apart and both found recognition through fine performances in the French League and at international level, although Abdoulaye did win an international cap until and did notfeature in the 2002 World Cup. In his early career Abdoulaye played for Senegalese clubs ASEC Ndiambour and Jeanne dArc where his goalscoring record as a centre back was highly commendable. He then moved to French club RC Lens in 2002 and had a loan spell at French third division side istres before joining Stokes first Premier League opponents Bolton in 2005. Famed for his strength and physical presence, and his angryyet dominant displays, Abdoulaye enjoyed two highly succe sful years at Bolton, making 60 appearances before moving to Newcastle on tranfer deadline day in August 2007, ironically the same day that Amdy left Newcastle for Charlton. Despite acquitting himself well at the Magpies, Abdoulaye, who can also play as a defensive midfielder was limitted to just 22 appearances last season, including one against Stoke in the FA Cup, scoring once, in  Kyle Quincey Women Jersey a 5-1 defeat against Manchester United. Abdoulaye has been capped 14 times by Senegal, scoring three goals at international level. Unfortuanately, Abdoulaye will not be able to feature tomorrow. The two Fayes are differenttypes of signings for Stoke. Amdy will bring vast experience to the midfield, for a least a year but he will not, I wouldnt think always feature in a strating role. Abdoulaye will, surely play a huge role at the back for Stoke, probably alonside Ryan Shawcro s where his strength and commitment will certainly  Jason Zucker Men Jersey endear himself to fans and his characteristics have already attracted manager TonyPulis to him. Once, while playing for bolton, he produced a tackle on Blackburns Matt Derbyshire that sent the ball flying to roof level at the Reebok Stadium.
