Goalkeeper Jakob Haugaard has joined Stoke from newly-crowned Danish champions FC Midtjylland for a fee of around £600K, on a three year contract. He will be third choice keeper behind Begovic and Butland, as Sorenson has now retired. Although Begovic has been heavily linked with a move to Man Utd as they are waving goodbye to their current no.1 de Gea.
It does look as though with this signing the club are preparing for Begovic’s departure and if so, do we sign a veteran keeper as cover for a season whilst Haugaard settles in?
