Reports coming out of Scotland say that Stoke could soon have a new man at Gary Rowett’s side in the shape of St Johnstone assistant manager Callum Davidson.
The 41-year-old has been Tommy Wright’s number two for the last five years and has been part of Gordon Strachan’s backroom squad for the Scottish international side, in his younger days he spent time with Rowett at Leicester City.
The Courier reports that Davidson is the man who Rowett wants at his side as he sets about trying to lead the Potters back into the top flight at the first time of asking following last season’s relegation.
Davidson was capped 26 times by his country and played for Blackburn Rovers before going to McDiarmid Park in 2014 to end his playing career at the team he started with in 1998. Recently he took charge of the side while Wright was in hospital.
Last season the Saints finished 8th in the Scottish Premiership.
Will it be a good hiring for Stoke? I remember him being a good player…no idea on his coaching ????????♂️
