Stoke have signed of Xherdan Shaqiri from Inter Milan for a club record fee of £12m (Peter Crouch for £10m was the previous record fee). The Swiss international winger has signed a five-year contract, a real statement of intent from the club.
I am liking him already with his quote to the official club website:
“I can’t wait to meet my new teammates and make my debut for the Club. It feels great to finally be a Potter!”
Worry over Ryan Shawcross and his back injury as he will require surgery meaning he could be out for at least two months. Maybe one more dip into the transfer market this window for a some cover at centre back?
