Ben Gibson is the new signing for Stoke City, who will sign until June 2027 to represent The Potters. The footballer has had a significant career in England, with his most notable achievement being the promotion to the Premier League with Middlesbrough in the 2015/2016 season.

"Stoke City is a fantastic club with a lot of history, great stature, and I'm really looking forward to getting to work. I have played here, the atmosphere is fantastic, and the fan base speaks for itself. I want to be part of a team that brings the good times back to Stoke. There are some brilliant players here, and now it's about creating that unity and togetherness to find the camaraderie that will guide us towards achieving something great."
