Farewell Huth – the Berlin Wall

Sad to see a modern day Stoke legend Robert Huth leave the club and join Leicester City on a three year deal. He had been at Leicester on loan since January and had proved a real hit with the fans.

He made 188 appearances for Stoke since joining from Middlesbrough back in 2009. He formed a truly immense partnership in central defence with Ryan Shawcross under the reign of Tony Pulis. He was injured for much of the last season until Christmas time and hasn’t really played much since Mark Hughes became manager.

Good luck Mr Huth, wished he could have played on for another year for us

Joselu signs for Stoke :-)

Spanish striker Joselu has signed from Hanover (who we signed Diouf off) for 8m Euros. Looks a good signing and another good signing.

Outward bound looks like Huth is set for Leicester City for a fee of £2.5m; Begovic is still being linked with a move away with Roma the latest rumoured club and Chelsea another strong contender; Steven N’Zonzi has reportedly stalled on a new contract and according to his agent/father wants to move to a bigger club. That story has been around before and maybe his father’s way of getting his son a higher paid contract.

Fixture list is out tomorrow 🙂

Farewell Palacios!

Stoke City have announced their retained list and the the first team players leaving are Thomas Sorensen, Wilson Palacios and Andy Wilkinson. Andy Wilkinson has been at the club since 2001, one of our longest serving players of recent times.

Peter Odemwingie is retained by the club although a new contract has yet to be announced. He has been injured for much of the season, although hopefully he will be offered at least a one year contract.

Transfer rumours are linking us with all sorts of players including Barcelona’s Dutch international Ibrahim Afellay and Konoplianka.

Outgoing looks as though Robert Huth will complete a £3m transfer to Leicester City possibly next week. Peter Crouch is being linked with West Brom and former Stoke boss Tony Pulis. That could well happen, although long term Pulis target Carlton Cole has just been released by West Ham.

Philipp Wollscheid signs :-)

Stoke City have taken up the option to buy Philipp Wollscheid from Bayer Leverkusen following his loan spell since January. He has signed a three year contract and officially joins the club on July 1st when the transfer window opens again. His signing looks to further Huth’s exit to Leicester City in the summer.

Another possible signing, more for the under-21 squad, is 18 year old Blackpool striker Dom Telford. No confirmation of the deal and it has been reported on Goal.Com

Stoke City transfer news

Robert Huth, currently on loan at Leicester City and earning rave reviews, is unsure if he will still be at the club come the start of next season.

Few plays with twelve months left on their current contracts look set to be offered new deals over the summer including Steven N’Zonzi, Jon Walters and Geoff Cameron.

Incoming players could include goalkeeper Jakob Haugaard, who plays for FC Midtjylland. There is still uncertainty over Begovic’s future at the club and with Sorenson retiring we are a goalkeeper short minimum. Burnley defender Kieran Trippier is another rumoured transfer target, although Liverpool and West Ham are also interested in signing him.

Transfer deadline day January 2015

So far we have only brought one player in, Philipp Wollscheid, on loan from Bayer Leverkusen.

With the transfer window closing at 11pm Monday 2nd February we have been linked with Tottenham’s Aaron Lennon again, although Hull City and Everton are also keen. Mark Hughes dismissed any new signings yesterday, although he would hardly say outright as he is a canny one like Pulis in the transfer market.

Robert Huth is all set to join Leicester City on loan for the rest of the season, a good move for both. Ryan Shotton and Edu have both left permanently which reduces the wage bill. No news on Brek Shea leaving though and no bugger seems to want Palacios!

Edu away! Huth next? Crouch and Odemwingie new contracts?

Finally! We get shot of Maurice Edu who has signed a permanent deal with Philadelphia Union. One of the worst Pulis signings that’s for sure.

Robert Huth has been made available for loan and a possible permanent move. End of an era and a Stoke legend of recent years with his defensive partnership with Ryan Shawcross.

Peter Crouch looks set to be offered a new two year deal as he is out of contract this summer. Peter Odemwingie has also hinted that he would be happy to extend his current contract which also expires in the summer.
