This week will be the unveiling of the new Mozzaameter which will show if I believe it’s a possibility or it’s not happening in the Transfer World.
A deal in progress was reported earlier this afternoon between Stoke & Sunderland. A central midfielder who has a big fan in Tony Pulis and it’s clear to see because we have been chasing him for a couple of season’s now and he desperately wants his man; I however can’t see what he’ll bring to the team as I don’t think he’s no better than Rory Delap or Glenn Whelan; But I won’t call him anything bad about his performances and give the lad a chance which some Stoke fan’s can’t seem to get to grips with!. A former captain of Sunderland side that got promoted and was also captain in the 2 games against The Potters in the 08/09 season. He however got several Stokies ruffled on a Stoke messageboard by saying “Stoke didn’t even string 2 passes together” after the 2-0 defeat at The Britannia so he is not the most liked man here in Stoke at this time. But when he does sign i’ll give him a chance and hope he proves me and several thousands of Stoke fans wrong. The fee will be around the £3m which is probably right for a player with a fair amount of Premier League games under his belt.
He missed the game against Grays & has not joined up with the West Ham squad over in Austria and this has fueled up immensely with Stoke’s interest and it’s pretty certain by looks of things that he will be a Stoke player very soon. This deal I thought was dead and even made a blog on here about possible solutions but this seems to have progress somewhat since then. It’s believed Ashton want’s a move back up North and be closer to family in Cheshire and Stoke will be an interesting proposition to Ashton because he’ll the be the big fish in a smallish pond, good wages, be adored by England’s best fans and be close to family and friends; what more can he want? Ashton will be A Stoke player before the match against Burnley. The fee will be around £8m which is a good piece of business for an England international
Stoke are once again in the chase to sign the highly rated youngster with local rivals Wolves in the running. The fee is reported to be £750k and that’s a bargain as he is one of the highly rated youngsters in the Football League. Stoke we’re interested last season but nothing came off it for reasons unknown, he’s a speedy winger who loves to run with the ball and is a good crosser of the ball and the age of 21 has a lot of time to grow. I think Stoke will be favourites because of the money and a very bright future which it is set to be at Stoke and also with several former Saints player I think it’ll be enough to convince him to come.
It’s been reported Stoke are after AS Monaco Croatian international who can play anywhere across the Midfield. It was reported Wolves we’re interested but couldn’t afford his wage demand which is around £30k so for Stoke it’s a possibility. I think this one will be one of them unexpected arrivals and would be a good signing and at 29 he’s in his peak and will be wanting to play in England and this will be his last chance to do so probably so it will be interesting; he’s also 6″1′ so will be a large figure in midfield. The fee will be around £2.5m which is good value for an experienced international player and won’t be too much of a lose if it didn’t work out
