More exciting news is flooding through the Potteries tonight, as it seems that Stoke have made another acquisition from Barcelona. Young midfielder Sergi Roberto has taken to his official Twitter page to potentially announce he is signing for the Staffordshire outfit.
The 21 year old Spaniard posted on Twitter earlier this evening saying ‘Muy contento de empezar este nuevo reto en el @stokecity.’. Translated, this actually reads;
‘Very happy to start this new challenge in the @stokecity.’
The post was quickly deleted, however the player does follow the official Stoke City Twitter account.
Has Hughes made a second purchase with his connections in Barca? Or is this purely speculation at the moment? Only time will tell. One thing is for certain, these are very exciting times for Stoke City fans.
