Shrimps sign striker Holroyd

Fortuna Dusseldorf have signed midfielder Robert Tesche on loan

from Hamburg until the end of the season.

The 25-year-old joined HSV in 2009 and has 18 months remaining

on his deal but has been deemed surplus to requirements.

But Fortuna general manager Wolf Werner has welcomed the

player’s arrival in Dusseldorf in the belief that his experience

could prove vital as the club looks to move up the table.

“Robert Tesche is vastly experienced having played more than 100

top-flight matches,” Werner told the club’s official website.

“He knows the Bundesliga and is aware of the standards. I am

sure he will be a useful player for us for the remaining months of

the season.”

Fortuna do not possess the option to sign the player permanently

as part of the deal.

Andrade initially moved to Adams Park from the Premier League

side in October and made his Chairboys debut in the 3-1 victory at


The 19-year-old has gone on to make 17 appearances for the club

and has scored twice, the latest the opening goal in last month’s

2-0 victory at Accrington.

Andrade will be hoping to return to the Wanderers’ starting

line-up when Dagenham visit on Saturday in League Two.

Holroyd was released by North End on January 5 and could make

his Shrimps debut against Cheltenham in League Two on Friday night,

providing the Globe Arena passes a 10am pitch inspection.

The 26-year-old makes Morecambe the ninth club of his career

after scoring nine goals in 21 appearances for Blue Square Bet

Premier outfit Macclesfield this term.
