Afellay arrival provides Stoke City with left-sided depth

Stoke City manager Mark Hughes said he was encouraged by his sides performance in their 2-0 win over Singapore XI in the third-place playoff of the Barclays Asia Trophy.

With Stoke City manager and players arriving in France for a week long training camp in advance of the Colonia Cup in Germany, there was another kind of arrival on Monday in the shape of former PSV Eindhoven starlet and free agent Ibrahim Afellay, who joins the club on a two-year contract.

It should come as little surprise that his most recent employer was Barcelona and in swapping the Nou Camp for the Britannia Afellay becomes the fourth player to make a switch to the Potteries from the Catalan...

Stoke midfield boosted by return of Bojan

Stoke City manager Mark Hughes said he was encouraged by his sides performance in their 2-0 win over Singapore XI in the third-place playoff of the Barclays Asia Trophy.

After a couple of weeks in Singapore, Stoke's players could be forgiven had they turned up to Wrexham on Wednesday evening less than enthused at the prospect of pitting their wits against the Conference North side in a preseason friendly.

As it happened though, they arrived in excellent spirits and mirrored the enthusiasm of their fans who filled the away end at the Racecourse Ground eager to get a glimpse of their side's new arrivals on home soil. A fortnight in the sweltering temperatures of...

Stoke City nearing finished article after Barclays Asia Trophy success

Stoke City manager Mark Hughes said he was encouraged by his sides performance in their 2-0 win over Singapore XI in the third-place playoff of the Barclays Asia Trophy.

Stoke finished their maiden Barclays Asia Trophy campaign in third place with a comfortable 2-0 win over a Singapore Select XI through goals from a resurgent Steve Sidwell and man-on-a-mission Marko Arnautovic.

While everyone would have preferred to have played in the final of the competition, by failing to overcome Everton on penalties on Wednesday the Potters were given a good opportunity to dictate their final game. That's not a luxury they would have been afforded had they faced tournament favourites...

Singapore Select XI go down fighting vs. Stoke in Barclays Asia Trophy

ESPN FC's Jason Dasey and John Wilkinson recap Singapore select XI's performances in the Barclays Asia Trophy, after recently falling to Stoke City 2-0.
Coming off of FA cup win last season, Arsenal beat Everton 3-1 in Singapore to become Barclays Asia Champions.

The Singapore Select XI suffered their second straight defeat as visiting Stoke City defeated them 2-0 to claim third place in the 2015 Barclays Asia Trophy on Saturday night.

After losing 4-0 to Arsenal in Wednesday's opening match, V. Sundarmoorthy's men put in another brave display but they were outclassed by the side who finished ninth in last season's English Premier League.

Stoke's goals were scored by Steve Sidwell (seventh minute) and Marko Arnautovic (73rd) at the Singapore National Stadium.

Stoke's new signings and young players impress in defeat vs. Everton

Stoke's pick-and-mix XI put in a creditable performance during Wednesday's defeat vs. Everton.

Stoke kicked off the 2015 Barclays Asia Trophy and their own preseason campaign, losing on penalties against Everton following a 0-0 stalemate in the late afternoon heat of Singapore.

The Toffees arrived having already played a friendly and had many of their first team stars available to start. Stoke, meanwhile, fielded their non-international playing contingent having only just welcomed back those on national team duty just a few days prior. For the Potters, it was a side that bore little resemblance...

From survival to sleekness: Stoke's evolution under Mark Hughes

Stoke City boss Mark Hughes has admitted that there were too many problems for the Shaqiri deal to go through.

The big clubs are drawing their plans together, seeking to consolidate or capture a place in the Champions League. But beneath those upper echelons of English football, something is slowly stirring in the gloom. Stoke City are growing stronger with every transfer window. They have stability, on and off the pitch. They have two consecutive ninth-place finishes to their name. And this year may be the year that they earn themselves a place in Europe.

Stoke will continue their preparations for the...
