    Tommy Simkin, a 19-year-old goalkeeper, will undergo another loan spell next season at Walsall in League Two, where he can continue developing both as a goalkeeper and as an athlete outside of The Potters.

    There's strong belief in his future potential, given his impressive stature and sharp reflexes. Tommy has already caught the attention of England's Under-20 national team, making his debut on March 22nd, showcasing his skills on the international stage.

    Tommy has also excelled statistically at Stoke City's youth level, playing 26 games in the Premier League U-18, totaling around 2,340 minutes with 7 clean sheets and 60 saves, highlighting his early career achievements.

    Having been part of Stoke City's academy for several years, Tommy has progressed through the ranks, featuring in both the U-18 and U-21 divisions, and even making appearances for the first team.

    Currently, with the signing of Viktor Johansson, it seems that Tommy's opportunity will come in a few years. For now, the most important thing will be for him to continue accumulating minutes with other teams, as his moment to wear The Potters' jersey is very close in the coming seasons.

    It's worth noting that this young goalkeeper has a promising future, as emphasized by Director of Football Jon Walters, who sees him as a key prospect destined to don the Stoke City jersey in the future.

    "We have high hopes for Tommy and see him as a real prospect for the future. This loan presents an excellent opportunity for him to leave a mark in the EFL with a club that has made a significant effort to facilitate this move."
