At the start of the season, the Stoke City fans in the Transfer Tavern were expecting a tough campaign…
Mark Hughes has had a mixed spell as manager in recent years, and whilst he had done a marvellous job in transforming Stoke since his arrival – there was a serious air of concern amongst the Potters in the Tavern.
Nonetheless, Hughes has defied expectation – and his Stoke City side currently sit 9th in the Premier League, with Premier League safety looking more than assured.
With the pressure off somewhat, Hughes will no doubt already be looking towards January and the re-opening of the transfer market – and our landlord thinks it’s safe to assume that the Potters will be doing a fair bit of business in the new year.
However, whilst much of the focus will likely be placed upon incoming talent – the Stoke City fans in the Tavern are hoping to see a few short-term departures too – with a number of Stoke’s young talent deserving of a spell on loan.
With that said, these 2 Stoke City players should plead Hughes for a loan move away in January
