Stoke City pre-season friendlies

Stoke City attend a training camp in Germany w/c 16 July with a mini-tournament on Saturday 21 July against SV Meppen and Hamburg. The players report back for pre-season training on 27 June.

Incomings could be Wolves striker Benik Afobe, who has only just signed permanently with Wolves following a loan spell from Bournemouth last season. Bizarrely he has only just signed for Wolves, however Wolves look set to make a couple of million profit as they paid Bournemouth £10m and we are rumoured to be bidding £12.5m.

Stoke have also had a £4m bid for West Brom midfielder James McLean rejected, although it is looking likely he will sign for either us or Cardiff as he has stated he wants to leave West Brom this summer.

Ramadan Sobhi has completed a medical ahead of a move to Huddersfield Town which is set to complete before he competes for Egypt in the World Cup.
