The Latest Stoke City FC Transfer News
Historical Transfer News and Team Gossip has been archived below:
Stoke City manager Tony Pulis has been extremely busy in the transfer market so far as he searches for all new talent to reinforce his squad for the start of next season. There have been many players linked to a move to the Britannia stadium from a wide variety of clubs but as of yet there have been no major developments for the manager to boast about.
The first singing prospect that Pulis has is of landing MLS player Geoff Cameron from the Houston Dynamos with a fee of around one million pounds said to have been tabled by Stoke for his services. The defender is highly prized by both his club and Tony Pulis who sees him as the perfect addition to his squad but as of yet there is no firm deal in place as negotiations continue between the two clubs.
Stoke City have also now entered the race for Blackburn midfielder Steven N`Zonzi after the player stated that he no longer wishes to stay at Ewood Park and wishes to get straight back into the action in the premier league. Stoke will have to fight off stiff competition from clubs such as Tottenham, Aston Villa and Sunderland if they are to gain his services for next season with a few of around seven million pounds being required by Blackburn.
Tony Pulis will be highly disappointed as Everton look set to land the Scottish international Steven Naismith from right under their noses. Stoke had felt reasonably confident in brining Naismith to the Britannia but once David Moyes entered the race for the forward it looked almost certain he would be playing at Goodison next season which is a huge blow for Pulis.
One of the best signings Stoke have made so far this summer is bringing former Glasgow Rangers midfielder Jamie Ness to the Britannia stadium on a free transfer after the Scottish club went into administration. Pulis has long been a fan of the player and is extremely happy to have added him to his squad. The player is currently out injured but the manager is quietly confident he can bring the player into the team by the start of the season which will be music to Stoke City fans ears.
