After an FA Cup performance to forget the transfer rumour mill is in full swing with Real Betis supposedly interested in signing Marc Muniesa, who said last month he wants away to guarantee first team football.

Bojan is after a move and after Saturday’s first half performance he won’t have impressed any potential suitors!

One player on the move is goalkeeper Jakob Haugarrad who has joined Championship side Wigan on loan for the rest of the season. With the signing of Grant permanently and Butland due back from injury hopefully next moth he’s be fourth in pecking order of goalies.

Geoff Cameron is due back from injury next week which should help us out in the midfield area.

Souttar finds a suitor ;-)

Scotland youth international Harry Souttar is reportedly close to a move to Stoke City from Dundee Utd. Stoke have been after him for sometime and the local press in Dundee are reporting this transfer as being concluded by the end of this week. Another youngster (he’s 18) for the academy ranks along with recent new signing Ryan Sweeney.

Seems Jack Butland could face Man City on Saturday although Glen Johnson is not going to feature as he recovers from injury.

Stoke City transfer news

Posted in Football, football transfers, Stoke City FC, The Premiership with tags , , , , , , , , on June 27, 2016 by The Rock 'N' Roll Oatcake

Weekend press reports have Stoke in pole position to sign West Brom striker Saido Berahino. If true, he could sign this week ahead of the players returning for pre-season training next week. One target we won’t be signing is Norwich’s Nathan Redmond who signed for manager-less Southampton.

One player heavily linked with a move away is Charlie Adam who is wanted by newly promoted Burnley and a move that could appeal to Adam as he would be guaranteed more starts.

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 🙂

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

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.

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!
