Â Stoke City have sold young striker Adam Rooney to Scottish Premier League side Inverness Caledonian Thistle for an initial fee of Â£50,000 following a successful trial period at the club. The fee could rise to a maximum of Â£75,000 and the deal also includes a percentage of future sale clause, meaning the Potters will profit from the enxt move Adam makes as well.
Â The Dublin born 20 year old, who has two Ireland caps at Under 21 level is stoke’s record youngest hat-trick scorer. He scored three in a 5-1 victory away a t Brighton on the final day of the 2005/06 season, taking the recond away from none other than Stanley Matthews.Â
Â Rooney had though found first team opportunitiesÂ hard to come by and made just 15 appearances for Stoke, also scoring in a defeat at ReadingÂ two and a half years ago. He has had loan spells at Yeovil Town, Chesterfield and Bury, being most successful at Chesterfield, scoring six times in 22 appearances, many of which coming on the wing. Rooney also scored city’s third in a 3-0 pre-season win over Newcastle town last month.
