Stoke City finally signed Saido Berahino from West Brom on a five and half year deal for at least £12m, rising to possibly £15m with add ons/clauses. Hopefully he can rediscover his goal scoring form of the 2014-15 season. His signing could see Bojan leave this week with Middlesboro the most likely destination still.

Two youngsters have gone on loan for the rest of the season…Ollie Shenton has joined Wrexham and Ryan Sweeney has gone to Bristol Rovers. Shenton was tipped to break into first team action after a couple of subs appearances in the 2014-15 season. This is the first loan period for Shenton which will hopefully develop his potential further. Sweeney joined us in the summer from AFC Wimbledon after impressing greatly during his time there.

Stoke have signed the highly promising defender Ryan Sweeney from AFC Wimbledon for a fee of £250k. He’s only 19 and looks set for a role in the Academy set-up or possibly a loan move for the short term. Good signing on the basis of reports about him and hopefully he will make the first team in due course.

Ramadan Sobhi’s first day of training with us can be seen here. Lots of excitement over his signing, not only from us Stoke fans but his many fans in Egypt.

The ongoing saga of the possible signing of West Brom’s Saido Berahino looks to be in doubt again after West Brom completed a takeover by a Chinese businessman. However, he was previously at Blackburn and an admirer of Mark Hughes’s management so maybe this could help the transfer?

The rumour mill has Peter Crouch linked with a possible move to Wolves. Possible although if he does drop down a division clubs like Brighton may also be interested.
