Jese Rodriguez has finished his time at Stoke after he was given unpaid compassionate leave until the end of the season. He has not had a successful loan spell since joining in the summer and won’t be missed by Stoke fans it has to be said.
A club spokesman said: “In order to respond to recent press speculation surrounding Jesé Rodriguez, we would like to confirm that the club has given Jesé permission to take unpaid compassionate leave until the end of the season for personal reasons and therefore he will not be returning to Stoke during his loan period.”
Even though we are not yet relegated the rumours are rife over departures of some of our players with Jack Butland linked with a summer move to Premiership new boys Wolves. One former player who may join us on a free is Leicester’s Robert Huth according to a posting on the Oatcake MB. He maybe 34 now but he’d add that defensive steel missing from Stoke most of this season.
