A look at Wilfried Bony to Stoke City

A look at Wilfried Bony to Stoke City

After a pretty quiet summer transfer window, Stoke City made a flurry of moves on deadline day, including the loan signing of Wilfried Bony.  While the headlines of the day were dominated by big money buys like Moussa Sissoko and David Luiz, Bony could prove to be one of, if not the most, impactful signings of deadline day.

Swansea Favourites For Relegation?

Swansea Favourites For Relegation?

At a time when terms such as money, commercialism and riches are synonymous with the beautiful game, there are sides like Swansea City, which go against the modern day monotony of the football world. When money is being spent heftily on players, Swansea seem to detach themselves from the surroundings and exist in an isolated environment of their own. How good a sight it is to witness Leon Britton dictate play from the midfield? Or the 33-year-old Angel Rangel maraud …

Everton have had a frustrating transfer window and the sale of John Stones for £47.5m has created a need for defensive reinforcements. Ashley Williams joined on Wednesday for a fee of £12m, which is a good addition and adds some much needed leadership to the defence. They are also looking for another centre back to strengthen the squad, with Lamine Kone a priority target. Everton have already had an £18m bid turned down for the Sunderland defender and could return …

Swansea Sign Spanish Striking Duo

On Friday, Swansea City announced the signing of Spanish international Fernando Llorente on a free transfer from Europa League winners Sevilla.  Manager Francesco Guidolin has since confirmed that the club will also sign Spanish striker Borja Baston from Atletico Madrid.

Why Aleksandar Mitrovic is Worth Buying and Who Should Look at Buying Him

Why Aleksandar Mitrovic is Worth Buying and Who Should Look at Buying Him

Aleksander Mitrovic had an eventful first season in England.  In his first start at St James' Park, he was sent off.  In his last Premier League game at St James' Park for at least a year, he was sent off.  In between those two red cards, he showed some real promise. Mitrovic was Newcastle's second top scorer by the end of the season, despite making only 22 starts.  He was key in their late bid to stay up, and is …
