Stoke City LIVE news and transfers Rooney linked, Allen eyes last hurray, £160m move


Welcome to our coverage of Stoke City on Thursday 24 March.

Stoke City owners, the bet365 Group, announced yesterday that they have ‘underscored their continued long-term commitment to the club and its funding’ by reducing the debts of the club’s holding company by £160million.

This announcement comes after the Potters returned to victory for the first time since February against Millwall (2-0) last weekend, before the international break. A first-half goal from Jacob Brown was then doubled by Lions’ George Saville as he put the ball into his own net.

While they may not be able to try and build momentum following the positive outcome, they can prepare for the busy and demanding schedule next month. The Potters will have seven games before the end of April.

Sheffield United, Reading, West Brom, Bristol City, Blackburn Rovers, QPR and Middlesbrough will follow. They host Coventry at the bet365 Stadium on the final day of the season on May 7.

Michael O’Neill welcomed Abdallah Sima on loan from Brighton Hove and Albion after suffering a groin injury in December. The Potters boss says he will consider the youngster as an option for the next few games.

However, last weekend’s victory put Stoke five points behind West Bromwich Albion’s mid-table in 12th place. With 24 points still to play, O’Neill’s men have a chance to finish higher in the Championship.
