Shrimps sign striker Holroyd

BY foxsports • January 18, 2013

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 Portsmouth.

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.
