Stoke City Rumours
Stoke Poll of the Day: Do far too many people watch games through their camera lens recording it, rather than just enjoying the moment?
Yesterday's Poll: Do you think daytrippers going along to soak up the atmosphere, rather than helping to provide it, are why the atmosphere in football is lessened these days? Yes - 67% No - 33%

Signed on loan til after the derby game, then a permanent :)
Confirmed transfer list on BBC Sport says he's on loan.
Why then has he posted goodbye notices severing his connection with Stoke where he has been since he was 9. Does he not think he could be coming back after loan?
Potential for a permanent move if he impresses during his loan spell will be woven into the contract I assume. He probably intends to exercise this option.
I doubt he will have actually severed his ties as Derby is pretty close to stoke. He'll most likely stay at his current home near longton
So is it a 1 year loan with 3 year permanent deal after?
26 Aug 2014 12:07:19
Hughes has already said he's not signing anyone!
25 Aug 2014 17:13:28
What planet are you on? Welbeck is terrible.
No chance! I'd happily see him in a stoke shirt though.
25 Aug 2014 17:12:09
Not going to happen, Stoke will not pay £11m for one player. Also Yarmolenkos wag demands are too high and Stoke wouldn't allow that, whereas other teams will pay his wages. If he moves, it won't be to stoke.
He's got 12 months left on his contract - Stoke won't pay £11m. Wait until January and get him cheaper or next summer and get him for free.
One more player could potentially come in however it's not a guarantee, winger or centre mid. Hoping Geoff Cameron stays at Stoke, a good player that's slowly slipping away because of MH
I'd say Abbie Clancy could fulfil
25 Aug 2014 17:01:43
Yarmolenko not happening. Assaidi or Redmond potentially, but I wonder if Moses was an alternative to these because we were unable to get these. Wickham and Gignac is a load of rubbish. Not going to happen in a million years. and We are rumoured to be interested in Westwood of Villa and Danny Bath of Wolves.
Good god, Hughes has said he's not signing anyone!
25 Aug 2014 16:57:10
Wilko just signed a 1yr deal
25 Aug 2014 16:52:14
24 Aug 2014 19:31:25
Id Keep Huth and let Texiera go out on loan to get much needed experience.
24 Aug 2014 17:25:51
Anything is better than Wilson
Wilson is class
Wilson is a liability and I have not seen a worse centre back in the Premier League ever.
24 Aug 2014 17:23:20
Wickham would be a good signing
24 Aug 2014 17:16:54
15 Aug 2014 20:27:56
I think its going to happen. dunno if I want it though
He's never quite made it although he is premier league quality. He likes to play as striker like Odemwingie. So what do we need now. A winger, who wants to play on the wing, or a striker? Still think we will be moving 3/4 on.
Think he will be an excellent signing.
Great for stoke well happy good times ahead
He was incredible the season before he joined chelsea at wigan, let's just hope we can get him playing like that again!
Moses loan finalised
Check bbc sport finalised
15 Aug 2014 20:02:06
Dunno what's going on, but let's face it we aren't getting him. disappointed with the villa result today too
Assaidi was a stupid choice. He is greedy and injury prone, Moses is perfect and we can probably sign him at the end of the season.
12 Aug 2014 23:28:59
More likely its Walters. Cannot see NZonzi and Pulis kissing and making up. Nzonzis first transfer request was when he fell out with him.
C'mon we all know that he will never leave stoke for palace
Hughes said n zonzi wasnt leaving, maybe (and hopefully) pulis classes shotton had a midfielder and palace are getting shotton
Not now pulis has gone
12 Aug 2014 16:39:43
I would rather Redmond or Asssaidi over moses. he has pace and strength yes. but fluffs his crosses and shots a lot. snatching at things instead of composure
Moses tends to run around without knowing where needs to go. He does have pace but wastes it. Seems to have been round for ages without really doing much.
Crouch to QPR to meet up again (6 times) with Redknapp. Fact!
Thought moses was liverpools?
Well done mate. Can your source now find a striker or tell whose leaving?
09 Aug 2014 14:22:47
Lazy player for a young talent, can't falter! :)
Hope not he's not good enough for Stoke.
I'd rather see Yarmolenko or Yedder but I don't think either will happen.
There was a rumour in Nabil Bahoui, Swedish footballer, born to Moroccan parents, 23 years old and a winger.
A great young talent but I would love to see yarmo
09 Aug 2014 12:04:53
08 Aug 2014 17:07:41
Get all 3!!! just get it done 1000%
Stoke won't pay 8m for anybody.
Paid 8mil for wilson p, paid 10 for crouch? have spent no more than baut 3mil so far this year with a rumoured 15mil to spend!
08 Aug 2014 12:19:19
As much as I doubt this will happen. Getting cash in for Crouch now and more so removing 60k per week from the wage bill should free up some funds.
He has turned down the move
It'll be hard for him to put pen to paper in East London while he's in Germany.
Well, that happened didn't it?
07 Aug 2014 16:16:15
I really hope so. A young, good prospect.
Hughes seems to have Stoke playing with a fluid front 3. Not sure an out and out winger is as desperately needed as many 1st thought.
Is this a ruse to get Ossie to make up his mind? We are told Liverpool is not the problem. Its either Ossie, or more likely his agent, trawling him around Europe
We're being linked with Yarmolenko now too. As above I reckon it's to show Assaidi's agent that we've got more options than just him.
03 Aug 2014 05:41:33
I haven't heard anything recently. It's all gone a bit quiet.
Our negotiations with Assaidi and his representatives have been put on hold during our pre-season tour so that MH can focus on the technical and tactical ability of the squad.
What do we think though? agree if we will sign him disagree if we won't.
Personally, I think we will sign him. From the sound of it, we agreed a fee with Liverpool and the stumbling block now is simply his agent being greedy, but I imagine the closer it gets to the end of the window, the more worried the agent will get about losing the sale (Assaidi wants first team football, Agent wants commission) and he'll stop being so greedy and we'll get him on our terms.
Not so sure we will get him. Stoke are going to stand firm on their wage evaluation because that's their way. Assaidi and his agents will now tout him out across Europe and somebody somewhere will be willing to pay stupid wages for players. I can already think of 2 clubs in London alone *cough-West Ham-cough-QPR*
29 Jul 2014 04:01:26
I think robinho on loan as he will go to Orlando and the co owners are a Brazilian and the director of stoke kaka has gone to Brazil robin ho to stoke
Bloody hell last post made a great deal of sense thank for clearing that up pal
On his Way to Boca Juniors plus the Assadi deal is back on
Boc Juniors have recently denied their Ronaldinho interests. Its unlikely that we will see him next year but it is still a possibility.
Wage will probably be in excess of £45k a week. He'll go to a poorly run club like QPR or West Ham (more money than sense).
Yeah the problem being, they aren't willing to spend their money - hence all the "bargain" signings.
No assadi agreed to lower his wage to join stoke
I'd rather Stoke sign the likes of Diouf for free and Bojan for about £1m than do a Fulham and spend £11m on a championship player.
Yeah but overall I'd rather us simply pay, for better players. Not random Greek players that have done well in a random European league. Proven players
Random Greek player from Greek league?
No such thing as a proven player. Every player is a risk.
I'd rather us be sensible (as we are) AND spend big money than just be sensible. Obviously the reason Hughes was brought in was because of his ability to sign "bargains". But I'd much rather us spend money on good players, proven in good leagues. Okay so some signings might not work out, but some will and it can be great. Just the difference between Adrian Ramos and Mame Biram Diouf. Or the difference between Sergi Roberto and Steve Sidwell. I feel like we would benefit from putting money into our transfers and personally I wish we would. I'm fed up of seeing low key signings every year, I want someone to get excited about and I want to be entertained.
So would you have been happier spending £12m on Diouf last season? That's how much they wanted and what we were close to spending. Instead we played it smart and got the same player for free. Diouf is a massive signing that has been over looked and somewhat over shadowed by Bojan because he's from Barcelona.
I'm afraid you're talking complete nonsense. First of all Hughes was not brought in to buy bargains, he was brought in to play attractive football which under pulis wasn't happening. (in the eyes of the Coates family) Secondly, Hughes' previous managerial spells have ended because he's brought in players that have had this so called reputable "big player" reputation in major leagues (Robinho, Granero etc) all moved for money and have not cut it in the premier league. As said before we have brought in players (for free) that have premier league experience - Sidwell, Bardsley, Diouf and like people have already stated we have brought in two players who have no prem experience however are highly rated and still young to become great players. I think Hughes has learnt from previous mistakes and will gradually build instead of major reform. Rome wasn't built in a day. Lastly and this is my personal opinion I want players who are excited to play for the club instead of moving for money. When times get bad they're the player who will drag the team through. Players who sign for big money and on big wages will just advertise their availability and I personally do not want that. If you do want that then I'd suggest supporting QPR.
Personally, simply to provide an alternative argument for you all, I say MH OUT, LONG LIVE THE REIGN OF LORD TONY PULIS! You all underestimate how good Pulis was. The only reason we stopped playing well was because the players stopped playing for Pulis and working hard for him. Our poor season wasn't down to Pulis, it was down to the players. They simply didn't want to work hard enough. This was proven by Pulis' miraculous recovery of a dead and buried Palace team last year. Palace will finish above us this year and we will finish below 10th because other teams are investing heavily.
Adrian Ramos? Really?
All of our signings this summer have been poor in my opinion.
Mate, under pulls stoke had a very old team. now under hughes we have brought in much younger players. this will be our likely squad next season.
Yes thank you. in the coming years we will replace huth and cameron, and maybe a new mid. we have a bright future. *touch wood*
A goal every other game in the Bundesliga is by no means poor.
If the Bundesliga is less competitive than the Premiership then surely, unless you play for Bayern or Dortmund, it'd be harder to score?
Pulis loving post has got to be a spoof? Hasn't it??
The point is now that MH has a more complete squad than TP ever had, competition in each position and won't have to play centre midfielders in defence anymore. plus they've done the business early enough for the player to gel enough in pre-season so we should hit the ground running. Also there is prob at least 7 teams worse off than us this time round (QPR, burnley, Leicester, West brom, Sunderland, Villa, Southampton) all for different reasons but I do think that Stoke had a good midtable team last year (that overacheived) that's been added too and not lost any big names so stop doubting and believe for once!
No it doesn't make it a more impressive record. it just means it's easier for an average player to stand out in a team and it means the majority of the time, he's playing against weak opposition, so it's easier to score. You are completely wrong and that was a stupid thing to say. HOWEVER, I happen to think that Diouf was a great signing and I also agree that Bojan will come good for us.
27 Jul 2014 17:10:52
Yeah, I saw this but how many wingers do we really need? Arni, Odemwingie, Assaidi? Bojan, Redmond?
/ we don't have assaidi or redmond yet! so currently we really do need another winger!
Proven striker = Diouf
IMHO I reckon we could do with signing 2 wingers; 1 starting 11 winger - Assaidi, Redmond etc and 1 winger for depth.
Bojan is a striker really. if you played him on the wing he is a bit aimless. he needs to be up front, getting in behind defenders
I don't think Diouf is proven. He may have a pretty good goal record but everything changes in the prem.
Only the likes of Van Persie and Aguero can be properly classed as 'proven' season after season goal scorers.
26 Jul 2014 12:00:41
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.
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!
Possible loan deal? As cover in case Bojan doesn't crack it straight away. Hughes says he will still use loan market.
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
Diouf has a poor record?
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.
Diouf was a flop at a team in the top 3 of the prem if he can't do it for a team that dominated most matchs ill doubt he'l do much for us. If you think the german league is as good as the prem you are wrong. Only once in 6 seasons have our top goal scorer got more than 10 in the league. Bottom line is Coates won't spend money. Free transfers a'nt gona fire us up the league, any player who is going to improve us a'nt gona be aloud go out of contract, Diouf won't get 15 in the league. Bardsley and Sidwell worse than what we have.
Diouf wasn't given a chance at Man U and he was very young. He's grown a lot and shown he can be a consistent goal scorer in the Bundesliga in the past few years and that is as good as we're going to get at the moment. As for the "good players don't go out of contract" statement - that's ridiculous. If a player refuses to sign a new contract because he wants to move, the club can't do anything about it. Stupid sweeping statement.
Do you realy think any of our best players would leave for nothing? No we would sell them with one year left on there contract if they refused sign another and they would be plenty of bidders. Bardsley has been told he won't be first choice next season by Sunderland, both he and Sidwell did not interest anybody whilst under contract because they are not worth any money.
You don't have to spend millions to have a great side, southhamptons old team cost next to nothing, still finished 8th
For the record Southampton have at least 2 players who have cost more than Stokes record signing Wayama £12 and Osvaldo £15 and they have something Stoke have not had for 35 years a youth policy. So if you can't bring em through the youth team you have to buy them.
Stokes youth team is incredibly poor and has been terribly organised over the past few years. No good youth prospects are produced unlike at Southampton.
And how good is Wanyama? He's not worth that amount anymore he had a poor season and needs go back to the Scottish league, simple
25 Jul 2014 23:20:05
I hope so. Unfortunately I can't see there being many takers for the likes of Shots and Palacios.
25 Jul 2014 23:18:55
Apparently Assaidi (or his agent) is demanding £45k a week and Stoke aren't willing to meet those demands.
I think, all in all, Nathan Redmond may prove to be a better signing.
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.
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.
Is that the same "very astute manager" who has;
He may have been a flop at Liverpool but he was magnificent for us last year?
Thats the one!
Its easy become the top midlands club when there's only WBA and Villa. There use to be 1/3 midlands teams in top division.
24 Jul 2014 15:35:54
Worst rumour so far.
Don't be silly lol
23 Jul 2014 08:22:12
Heard on another rumour grape vine that Hughes is still after another big name?
Cash + Cameron Jerome has allegedly been offered for Redmond.
Stoke need a CAM quick (hunt) would be a deadly signing! Agree or what?
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.
Hunt has already signed a contract with someone (cant remember who)
Hunt has signed for Wolfsburg
22 Jul 2014 15:36:57
Apparently Barca have agreed for Stoke to BUY him.
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.
It was a buy for £3 million. We have him on a 4 year deal.
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!
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?
Lifes good fellow stokies, lifes always good! another season top10 great to be a potter
Bojan brilliant signing by Stoke well done to Hughes
Bojan- brilliant coup for Hughes
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.
Why hate on a manager who got us our highest finish in the prem with barely any of his players.
Bojan scored 10 when he was 17 in La Liga
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)
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.
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.
It's Nzonzi's dad/agent who is unhappy with Nzonzi being at Stoke not Nzonzi himself.
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.
Barcelona will weave a buy back clause into the deal of Bojan joining us.
Barcelona only have a first refusal clause on Bojan. Like United had with Shawcross.
22 Jul 2014 00:51:59
I presume you mean Biabiany? Not true.
