Four can leave the club

Manager Gary Rowett has said four players – Imbula, Charlie Adam (who has been ruffling feathers with his radio punditry), Maxim Choupo-Moting and Geoff Cameron – are all surplus to requirements and available before this month’s EFL deadline. Imbula is likely to be a loan again and of the four Geoff Cameron looks the likeliest to leave first with firm interest from a couple of European clubs.

Stoke will look to get a few players on loan, either as season long ones or loan to buy where we loan a player and pay the agreed transfer fee in January (like Benik Afobe). Makes bit of a nonsense about the transfer window closing on August 9th though.

Sam Clucas joins Stoke City

Stoke City have completed the signing of Swansea City midfielder Sam Clucas for an undisclosed fee. Clucas has signed a four-year contract and is seventh acquisition of the summer, following permanent signings of Peter Etebo, Benik Afobe, Adam Federici, James McClean, Tom Ince and Ashley Williams on loan.

Although the transfer window has now closed for permanent signings Stoke can still make loan signings and sell to European clubs until the end of August.

Stoke City completed the signing of West Brom winger James McClean yesterday for a fee of £5m plus £1m add-ons. He will be a useful addition to the squad and a player manager Gary Rowett has tried to sign twice at his previous clubs.

Huddersfield’s Tom Ince is reported to be signing soon for a £10m transfer fee.

Shaqiri completed his transfer to Liverpool yesterday. He made it clear he wanted to have Champions League and Premiership football this season. A real pleasure to watch in a Stoke top and good luck at Liverpool.
