Van Ginkel, Given and Johnson all join and Ness leaves

Stoke City have signed goalkeeper Shay Given on a free transfer after his release from Aston Villa. He joins on a two year contract and will be no.2 behind the new no.1 Jack Butland (assuming Begovic does join Chelsea!). Good signing given his experience and the age of our goalkeepers now, all of whom are under 26 years old.

We have also signed midfielder Marko van Ginkel from Chelsea on a season long loan (presumably part of the Begovic deal). This could be a steal of a signing, albeit on loan, given the potential he has.

Former Liverpool defender Glen Johnson has also signed on a free according to the Daily Mail and Sky Sports. Good cover for right back and I think he will be first choice ahead of Cameron and Bardsley.

Jamie Ness has left the club on a free transfer joining Scunthorpe. He had been on loan at Crewe last season and looked set to join on loan again. He’s never really featured at the club and was signed along with Maurice Edu (another recent flop) from Rangers by Pulis.

Rochdale in the Cup, Philipp Wollscheid signs

Stoke City face Rochdale away in the 4th round of the FA Cup. That is a tough tie and could be televised on the Monday night.

German defender Philipp Wollscheid has signed on loan until the end of the season, with a view to a permanent deal in the summer. Looks like a good signing and could pose more of an aerial threat at setpieces and corners. May even make the bench for the Arsenal game.

Midfielder Jamie Ness has resigned with Crewe on loan for the rest of the season.

Cameron a Stokie and get well Huth

Geoff Cameron has had his work permit approved and can now play for us. A great signing and like fellow newboy Jamie Ness can play in a variety of positions. Michael Kightly is set for  medical today ahead of his move from Wolves. Good work Stoke in getting three players in before the season starts. There will be mroe comings and goins you can be sure of that, possibly even Polish trialist Sebastian Boenisch may be offered a contract?

Stoke drew 1-1 with Yeovil Town with Kenwyne Jones getting Stoke’s goal headed on by Boenisch.

Get well soon Robert Huth who has suspected meningitis.

Woodgate joins Boro; Ness delayed and Cameron next in?

Jonathan Woodgate has joined Middlesboro on a three year contract after his contract with Stoke expired. Good luck to him but three years???

Jamie Ness is expected at pre-season training on Thursday as Stoke have taken the transfer to FIFA to rule on.

Geoff Cameron’s, possible move looks still to be on and could be concluded next week.

We have inquired about Blackburn’s Martin Olsson who would be a cracking signing, especially at the rumoured £3m price tag.

Kenwyne Jones looks set to join West Ham an ideal Big Sam forward if ever there was one!

Ness in, Woodgate out?

Jamie Ness has agreed a four year contract with Stoke, subject to international clearance. He joins from Rangers on a free as Rangers are no more and have come back as newco for now. Only 21 and has good reviews from Rangers fans. Question is will Pulis use him in the squad this season or possibly loan him out for a few months? Either way welcome to Stoke and he looks a great prospect.

Meanwhile, possible rumours that Jonathan Woodgate may not sign the one year contract he has been offered. Carlo Nash has also been offered a one year contract but according to his Twitter updates is looking for another club.

No movement on Matthew Upson joining Southampton and hopefully we can keep him, as he performed well each time he was called upon last season.

US defender Geoff Cameron may join the team on their US tour, although again no real movement on his one.

Strange that Fuller has not been snapped up yet, although Ipswich Town are interested.

Jamie Ness our first summer signing?

Stoke look set to sign Jamie Ness from Rangers. He is one of eight players who have refused to join newco, the new club replacing Rangers. There could be a legal challenge but it looks like Ness will be joining Stoke.
