FC Koln 2-1 Stoke City
A late winner denied us a decent start to the Colonia Cup in Germany. Peter Odemwingie scored our goal and we take Porto on Sunday, ahead of our Premier League opener against Liverpool next Sunday.
Ibrahim Afellay signed this week on a free transfer from Barcelona – our fourth player from that club now. The winger joins on a two year contract.
Andy Wilkinson has been given a contract by the club to the end of the year as he continues to recover from injury and look for a new club.
