During the World Cup, Stoke City center-back Harry Souttar gained a lot of praise for his play with Australia — So much so that following the World Cup, the Souttar transfer rumors went into full overdrive — Specifically, rumors about Leicester City being interested in the six-foot-six defender.
Since the World Cup it’s been long speculated that the Foxes were moving in on a potential deal for Souttar. However, all of that speculation can now officially be put to bed — As per Fabrizio Romano, Leicester City are in the process of finalizing a permanent transfer deal to sign Harry Souttar.
If Tuesday’s transfer deal for Souttar becomes finalized, it’ll mean Souttar will end his time at Stoke City having started 61 matches in 61 matches played for The Potters. Souttar also contributed 1 goal, 3 assists, 81 tackles, 61 blocks, 87 interceptions, and 353 clearances.
Souttar could have contributed even more over his Stoke tenure, had he not missed a year of playing time with an ACL injury. In the end, Souttar’s true impact on Stoke City could be the fee that The Potters negotiate for the coveted Transfer.
