Erik Pieters signs for Stoke City

Dutch international left back Erik Pieters has signed for us today from PSV Eindhoven for a fee of 3.8m Euros (£3m approx) on a four year contract. Our first left back in over thirteen years since Marcus Hall and Tony Dorigo! Great to get a new face in early in pre-season and hopefully a couple more new faces to follow before deadline day.

The home friendly against Genoa on August 10th has also been confirmed by the club with ticket details to follow shortly.

On a sadder note legendary Stoke supporter Mabel Smith sadly passed away. A fitting tribute from Chairman Peter Coates can be read here
