The telegraph said the on the waiting list was jay Rodriguez

How long was he injured for

(0)
(0)

Yeah, I saw this but how many wingers do we really need? Arni, Odemwingie, Assaidi? Bojan, Redmond?

There will just not be enough game time to go around. personally I think we need to look for a proven striker that will bang in goals

(0)
(0)

/ we don't have assaidi or redmond yet! so currently we really do need another winger!

(0)
(0)

Proven striker = Diouf

(0)
(0)

IMHO I reckon we could do with signing 2 wingers; 1 starting 11 winger - Assaidi, Redmond etc and 1 winger for depth.
Realistically we only have Arnie.
Odemwingie was good on the wing but is a striker.
Bojan is a striker and has been at his best when played as such.
Shea - unconvinced as yet if he's good enough - might be going?
Walters - meh! - might be going?

Javier Hernandez might be the star player Hughes has said about signing

(5)
(2)

Already signed 2 strikers. Can't see Herdandez willing to go from sitting on the bench at United to sitting on the bench at Stoke.

(2)
(4)

United said to want between 10-15mil for him, 1 can't see us paying that for him and 2 I don't think he is worth that much!

(3)
(3)

Possible loan deal? As cover in case Bojan doesn't crack it straight away. Hughes says he will still use loan market.

(2)
(1)

We need proven striker and quick doubt diouf who has a poor record is going to do it for us. Bojan is more a deep lying player. Looks like coates a'nt going to spend on the stadium or the team. Come on we need a goal scorer don't wanna suffer crouch and walters another season. Ill be happy with Hernandez, Assaidi and Redmond

(1)
(2)

Diouf has a poor record?
Last 3 seasons - 71 appearances in all competitions scoring 35 goals. That's pretty much a goal every 2 games.
He has the 9th top goal scorer in the 2012-13 season (only 1 goal behind Muller).
Over a 38 game Premier League season that's 19 goals.
Your opinion is not supported by the actual statistics.

(2)
(1)

we won't get Hernandez, Assaidi and Redmond. I suspect we'll get ONE of those three, unless we loan one. I think we'll buy Assaidi OR Redmond and then potentially loan Hernandez but I find that unlikely.

Stoke looking to offload Shotton, Walters, Palacios and Jerome.

(7)

I hope so. Unfortunately I can't see there being many takers for the likes of Shots and Palacios.

Stoke hoping to tie up a deal for Assaidi within the next 5 days. If a deal cannot be concluded by then, Stoke will submit a second improved offer for Nathan Redmond. Stoke are also rumoured to be interested in Zakaria Bakkali again.

(5)
(0)

Apparently Assaidi (or his agent) is demanding £45k a week and Stoke aren't willing to meet those demands.

(5)
(0)

I think, all in all, Nathan Redmond may prove to be a better signing.
1. He's much younger than Assaidi
2. He's not as injury prone
3. He can boost the English Player requirement

(4)
(0)

Ousamma Asssaidi? Do me a favour. He was a flop at Liverpool and now our very astute manager is going all out to get him! The mind boggles.

(1)
(2)

Assaidi was one of a number of '' flop '' Liverpool signings who were never given a chance, Aspas, Borini and Alberto to name a few. I think given a chance he will prove to be a good buy.

(2)
(0)

Is that the same "very astute manager" who has;
given Stoke their highest points total, highest league finish, 1st top half finish, 1st time as top midlands club in it's 125 year history, revolutionised Stoke's playing style to make games more entertaining to watch whilst spending less in 2 seasons than Fulham have on one very average Championship striker?
Assaidi was a 'flop' at Liverpool but he proved last season that given a chance in the right set up he can be sensational. He terrorised opposition defences last year with his skill and scored some stunning and crucial goals. Assaidi has proven he is a very good player. The only problem Stoke have with Assaidi is concerns over injuries and high wage demands.

(2)
(0)

He may have been a flop at Liverpool but he was magnificent for us last year?

Dont shoot the messenger but. I've heard on the grapevine that Mark Hughes is looking at a loan deal for Roger Johnson from Wolves. Could be just what we need

(3)
(11)

Worst rumour so far.
Hughes has already signed a CB, he's also signed an out and out RB which frees up Cameron for defensive cover.
Also, if Hughes wanted a newly promoted Championship player he could just go out and buy one. There's no need for an established PL club to be loaning from lower divisions.

(7)
(2)

Don't be silly lol

23 Jul 2014 08:22:12
Following the Bojan deal Stoke are looking at signing 2 more players in the next couple of weeks.
Assaidi is one. Fee has reportedly been agreed and now Stoke are just trying to settle on personal terms (greedy agents).
No idea who the 2nd is? And looking at the current squad, I'm not even sure if it'll just be a squad player unless a 'starting 11' player is sold?

(8)
(0)

Heard on another rumour grape vine that Hughes is still after another big name?

(1)
(0)

Cash + Cameron Jerome has allegedly been offered for Redmond.
Personally can't see us signing Redmond AND Assaidi. Competition for places is great n all but Arnautovic, Assaidi and Redmond will all see themselves as definitive 1st team starters. Someone will end up very unhappy. Plus Odemwingie also made a claim to be considered during the last half of the season and with a reasonably successful world cup.

(3)
(0)

Stoke need a CAM quick (hunt) would be a deadly signing! Agree or what?

(2)
(5)

If we play the same 4-2-3-1 as last season a CAM like Hunt would be awesome BUT with the signings we've made (Diouf and Bojan) Hughes might be playing 2 up top next season.

(1)
(0)

Hunt has already signed a contract with someone (cant remember who)

Hunt has signed for Wolfsburg

Barcelona have finally agreed a deal for Bojan which will see him spend the upcoming season on loan at Stoke City, this will be announced very shortly potters

(5)
(10)

Apparently Barca have agreed for Stoke to BUY him.

(12)
(4)

Cannot believe we have signed this player. Is he a striker? don't think so! 4 goals in 24 appearances for Ajax would suggest not. Same strike rate as Kenwyn Jones and Mark Hughes got rid of him. The mind boggles. We would have been better off getting Emily Heskey. Relegation scrap this season. Cheers Mark.

(3)
(18)

It was a buy for £3 million. We have him on a 4 year deal.

(6)
(6)

This guy is only 23, he's scored 40+ goals for Barcelona at a very young age so that proves a point in itself, what a fantastic signing for Stoke, watch out for this lad it's going be all about him next season!

(14)
(2)

Heskey, Jones don't think they are in Bojan's league, its not all about scoring goals. Relegation scrap. you will be selling your season ticket then?

(6)
(3)

Lifes good fellow stokies, lifes always good! another season top10 great to be a potter

(8)
(1)

Bojan brilliant signing by Stoke well done to Hughes

(12)
(2)

Bojan- brilliant coup for Hughes
Anyone that has watched football over the last few years will see this is a quality signing and takes the club to the next stage. In the alternate if we want to play in the championship we could have kept Jones and signed Heskey

(11)
(3)

How deluded you all are. brilliant coup for Hughes? Pah! He's scored 26 goals in 104 appearances for Barcelona over 5 years. What a strike rate! Any striker worth his weight should be scoring those goals in 2 season - at least. And you're right. I have not renewed my season ticket and never will until MH is gone.

(3)
(13)

Why hate on a manager who got us our highest finish in the prem with barely any of his players.

(8)
(3)

Bojan scored 10 when he was 17 in La Liga

(5)
(2)

Have mixed feelings on this issue. I was opposed to Hughes when he first joined but have to admire his pickings (cheap but good, Pieters and Arnautovic in particular)

Now I think we have to back him with his latest pickings. To me the most significant signing could turn out to be the new centre back.

Another matter of interest is whether Bojan has a buy out clause? They seem very fashionable. If he has, how much??

Now we have to wait and see who he gets rid of. Any bets?

gmass

(0)
(0)

How can WE be deluded especially when YOU can't see how well Stoke have done under MH and within a season the club is looking at bigger prospects and progression speaks for itself.

(10)
(3)

In my opinion its time to get rid of wilson, he did a job but was a bit shaky at times, plus we now have texeria who looked decent vs monchangladbach (is that how you spell it?) so maybe its time he left, also I personaly would want n zonzi to go.
Why have a player who doesn't want to play for us.

(3)
(2)

It's Nzonzi's dad/agent who is unhappy with Nzonzi being at Stoke not Nzonzi himself.
Mark Bowen has said that the £3m figure for Bojan is a joke and was considerably less than that, barely into six figures. This deal only gets better.

(4)
(0)

I agree that Wilson isn't good enough, but I feel he's a good utility player as he can play full back, centre back and centre mid, so he could be useful if we get a lot of injuries. However I feel we must keep N'Zonzi, he's too good for us to let him go in my eyes.

(3)
(0)

Barcelona will weave a buy back clause into the deal of Bojan joining us.

They did it to Roma and they will do it to us.

If Bojan plays well this season, then we will have to say bye bye to him on the cheap and he will return to the Barca bench

(0)
(1)

Barcelona only have a first refusal clause on Bojan. Like United had with Shawcross.
All's this means is that if any other team comes in with an offer for Bojan at a later date Barcelona can decide to match it and get him back.

It is rumoured that Palacios is going to Qatar for 1m and Jerome could go to Fulham for 2m. If so then Walters will be worth 3m or more. If we sell these three it would pay for Redmond. We would still need an extra striker ( hopefully free) Then our total capital spend would be whatever we pay for Ossie. Surely Liverpool has to accept an offer below 7m when they look like getting 14m for Borini.

Late thought Steven Fletcher could be surplus at Sunderland if they get Borini and not expensive.

It all seems to depend on Bojan but I do share the view that he is a gamble. Not had the best 3 years.

gmass

(4)
(2)

Well Heskey is currently a free transfer ;)

(4)
(4)

Bojan a gamble?!?! are you crazy?

(5)
(1)

£1m Palacios deal was done but he failed the medical.

(3)
(0)

Yes, Bojan is a gamble. He has had a really poor last 3 seasons and he started going downhill (from what I've read from Spanish journalists) when a manager who had faith in him left Barcelona. What he needs is confidence in him, like Assaidi and Arnautovic. Who deals with players like that best and sorts them out? Mark Hughes. There's no doubt it would be a gamble (whoever said "are you crazy?" to that is deluded) but personally I feel it would pay off. Particularly if we could sign him on a free at the end of the year, after his loan.

(3)
(4)

Palacios's move cancelled due to his medical fail

Bojan deals looks to be off as Isiah Cuenca a former barca player has been in contact with bojan about join Deportivo

(1)
(11)

Bojan going greece

(3)
(8)

I'm not to fussed about bojan. It's all just rumours etc, yes it'd be nice but I wouldn't mind just settling with Redmond and assaidi for now.

Plus his form the past 3 seasons haven't been promising at least we know Redmond and assaidi are promising.

(4)
(2)

 

 

18 Jul 2014 09:41:34
At the moment it sounds as if Stoke are trying as hard as they can to push through deals for Assaidi (£5m) and Bojan (loan). There are complications such as price demands and competition, respectively, but Stoke are trying to push them through. If either of the deals fail to be completed Stoke will turn to either - a second bid of £4.5m for Redmond OR free agent Keko, a Spanish winger.

(4)
(1)

Redmond wants to join stoke so hopefully the club will put in a better bid

(5)
(0)

Looks like bojan could be going to greece according to sky sports

17 Jul 2014 21:05:21
Stoke squad for Germany does not include Palacios or Jerome? Are they leaving? Shotton and Ness in squad. Even if only 2 leave it means first team squad is just 21. Therefore space for upto 4 new faces? Interesting

(1)
(0)

No because you are forgetting Begivic, Odemwingie and Cameron which would make 26 without Jerome and Palacios. also if the Assaidi deal is completed that makes 27

(1)
(0)

Stoke representatives have held talks in spain with bojan to try tie up the deal by monday bojan wants prem football but depertivo are being in the way. Bojan and assadi in the week maybe

(3)
(0)

The 23man squad includes Dan Bachmann who is an under age player

(1)
(0)

So, leave out Buchanan but add 3 from World Cup that makes 25 therefore we need to lose one from that 25 every time we bring one in?
My guess, if we sign a striker Walters will go. but we may lose Shotton as well.

16 Jul 2014 20:57:40
Oussama Assaidi's transfer to Stoke City could be finalised before this weekend for a fee around £5million

(8)
(2)

We need to try and get Bojan and/or Assaidi deal done before the Squad go to Germany really.

(6)
(1)

Bojan is going to Deportivo, Riviere has gone to Newcastle. We need Assaidi and Redmond.

(4)
(3)

I think we need Assaidi OR Redmond, seeing that they're both similar players in a lot of aspects. We just need another attacking midfielder to complete the squad.

(2)
(4)

Bojan has rejected Deportivo

(4)
(1)

 

 

16 Jul 2014 20:45:24
Both Bojan and Rivi�re deals look unlikely now with Deportivo and Newcastle winning the races to sign these players, respectively. I think we need to hurry up and sign up Redmond before someone beats us to that.

(4)
(5)

Who actually disagreed with that? Rivière has already moved to Newcastle, Bojan going to Deportivo is imminent and we have put in a 2nd offer for Redmond. Spot on.

(1)
(3)

Spot on?

Nice one.

More than likely a squad acquisition if there is any truth in it.

Any more news on Bojan, because it's rumoured we're facing competition from Deportivo now?

Stoke have had a 3. 5 Million bid rejected for Nathan Redmond Norwich remain set on 6 Million sale to either stoke or southampton

(6)
(0)

Im sure 4. 5-5mil would be enough for the to accept, we should go for him 100%

(5)
(1)

Norwich are quiet stubborn on 6M I think we should pay 4M and throw in palacios

(5)
(1)

I think Naaarch might want £7 million if we're throwing in Palacios.

14 Jul 2014 23:19:13
Bojan deal looks to be completed in the next 24-48 hours. We are in pole position to sign him and Mark Hughes has been talking with him last week. Fingers crossed. If we can sign him Europa League here we come.

NzStokeFan

(7)
(3)

What planet are you on? If you think signing Bojan will get us into the Europa League you are deluded. He's a fairly decent player but he is not the Messiah. Another season of mid-table mediocrity beckons

(8)
(8)

Mid table mediocrity. Success for Stoke is always going to be finishing between 6th and 10th with a good Cup run and would not be mediocrity, especially with 70 to 80 million in the coffers. We could not compete with the big four. Bojan would be a very good signing.

(6)
(6)

It will be many many many seasons before (and if) we make it to the Europa League places.

(4)
(6)

Obviously you did not clearly understand my reply re success for Stoke. I never mentioned the Europa League, only that anywhere between 6th and 10th is success for a club like Stoke. The sooner some Stokies realise this the better. Redmond would be a positive move if we get him for less than 5 million.

Most likely signings for now are looking like Redmond (£6m) and Bojan (loan). Although we are still interested in Rivi�re, Assaidi and Sergi Roberto (if N'Zonzi leaves).

(10)
(1)

Sergi Roberto and Bojan are class. Hoping for these ones for sure

(6)
(1)

I really wouldn't mind if N'Zonzi goes. Yes he is pretty good but he is so unloyal.

(4)
(4)

Rivière is going to Newcastle

(6)
(2)

Sergi Roberto would be a perfect replacement for N'Zonzi. He'll probably be more likely to come since Bojan and Muniesa are already here. (If Bojan does join). Things are really looking good.

Another Barcelona player heading our way is Sergi Roberto.
Muniesa is playing a big part as they are very good friends.

He is a young winger and we can get him cheap

(8)
(5)

He's valued at 7m!

(2)
(1)

Won't happen linked with him last year but we signed muniesa instead

(3)
(1)

Sergi Roberto is a CM actually and he won't come. Muniesa tried to persuade him to come last summer but Roberto didn't want to.

12 Jul 2014 15:06:54
Stoke city targets:
Bojan Krkic (Barcelona)
Xavier Hernandez (Man U)
Nathan Redmond (Norwich)

(16)
(2)

Yes please to all three

(11)
(1)

Bojan supposedly done and Redmond set to be at Clayton Wood this week.

I dunno about Hernandez but yeah, would love to see him with us

(10)
(2)

Add Oussama Assaidi to that list too

(5)
(3)

When are people going to FINALLY realise. ASSAIDI isn't HAPPENING and it has been off for weeks now!

(6)
(10)

Bojan and Redman would both bring pace and energy, Hernandez is not a 90 minute player, hopefully Nzonzi moves on

(5)
(1)

I can't believe people are still hoping for Assaidi, I think they need to stop being so stubborn and accept that if he was going to come, he'd probably already be here. Negotiations stumbled due to their price demand and his fitness. Redmond and Bojan would be excellent signings. Hernandez. I'm not too sure.

(4)
(4)

Stoke are still looking at agreeing a fee with Liverpool for Assaidi so what you talking about!! It's still on as far as we know and MH will keep trying till the last minute to secure the deal

(8)

12 Jul 2014 12:01:43
Slimani still interesting Stoke City & Crystal Palace however Its Leicester where he will be heading as the new boys look to seal a deal worth €10million

(2)
(2)

Stoke aren't interested in Slimani.

(2)
(1)

10 MILLION!?!?! For Slimani!?!? He scored like 2 goals at the World Cup.

(5)
(2)

Yes €10million because he's scored at the World Cup and also has 8 goals for Sporting in 26 apps

(2)
(1)

8 goals in 26 appearances in that league is pathetic.

(4)
(2)

He's not worth €10m at all. 8 goals in 26 games for a striker in the Portugese league makes him average in their league. So how in earth do you think he'd cope with the Premier league? Absolutely stupid. Why do people make up this stuff?

Contract expires next June so could end up being a free full transfer a la Ireland

Would love to see him in a Stoke shirt and then sign him on a full contract at the end of the season.

According to website he is a winger. Does this mean we don't keep trying for Assaidi?

Jack rodwell to be confirmed as a stoke city player by next week good signing if we can get him fit.

(9)
(7)

we already have Sidwell, Whelan, Palacios, N'Zonzi and there's only 2 central midfield places too fill so. I think I have proved my point.

(8)
(0)

If palacios goes then there is only 3 so rodwell would be a great signing

(5)
(3)

Geoff Cameron can also play as a holding midfielder.
Above comment also neglected to mention Ireland.
I also suspect Rodwell's wage demands would be too high.

(6)

I think 9 other clubs pages are saying the same. Somebody has a busy agent methinks.
