The move that a lot of Stoke City fans didn’t want to happen looks set to go ahead and be completed very soon.

The BBC report that Republic of Ireland winger James McClean is set to sign for the Potters from West Brom any time now.

No doubt fans will put their feelings about this move behind them for the good of the club when they see what he can bring to the bet365 Stadium this coming season.

Manager Gary Rowett is known to be a big fan of the player, he even tried to sign him for Derby County when he was in charge there.

McClean was brought back into the West Brom side towards the end of last season and put in some great performances although he could not help the club maintain their top-flight status.

The 29-year-old is thought to be costing Stoke around £5 million which, seeing as he has a year left on his Baggies contract is not a bad bit of business.

As far as the fans go, they will have to get over their problems with the player and get behind the club for the up and coming season, personally, if he wants to put on a Stoke shirt and perform for the club as he can then I’m right behind him.

As you would imagine, there is plenty of feelings about the subject on Twitter…
