"He is a tricky right-winger, an attacking player. What part he can play until the end of the season, is always tight, but he is on a short-term deal."

Ardley moved to sign Lloyd Sam before the EFL deadline closed on Thursday to provide cover for the injured Cody McDonald.

Lloyd Sam was called up by Ghana on 10 October 2015 to play a friendly against Canada on October 13 in which he was a substitute in the 53rd minute.
