The four new signings come from renowned teams such as Arsenal, Liverpool, Rangers, and Chelsea. These players, who occupy different positions—a goalkeeper, a full-back, and two wingers—are expected to enhance Stoke City's current squad.

Despite their youth, they have great potential for development, and the club's academy director, Gareth Owen, is committed to nurturing these future English stars.

  • Noé Cooper: A goalkeeper from Arsenal, Cooper brings impressive potential with his commanding presence between the posts, which excites the team about his future in the youth divisions.
  • Francisco Gyimah: At 17 years old, Gyimah spent the latter part of last season with The Potters through an agreement with Liverpool. The club decided to retain him with a new contract to aid his physical development, as his role requires both defensive and offensive skills. The club believes he can continue to develop and prove why he belongs at Stoke City.
  • Kieron Willox: An 18-year-old right winger from Rangers, Willox already has some familiarity with the club, as he and Gyimah were present at the end of last season. Both players have continued to impress, leading the club to offer them contracts to remain with the team.
  • Chinonso Chibuese: An 18-year-old winger from Chelsea, Chibuese has been highly sought after in the market. He is known for his physical strength and versatility in attack, making him a valuable addition to Stoke City. The club sees enormous potential in him, expecting that he will significantly contribute to the team's performance.

These signings demonstrate Stoke City's commitment to investing in young talent, hoping to build a strong foundation for the club's future success both domestically and internationally.
