In a recent interview with the BBC, chairman Peter Coates said that he expects transfer dealings to start moving in the next few weeks.

The Potters chairman explained that transfer talks have been “messy” because of the Euro 2016 tournament.

“It’s always messy with the Euros, as nothing gets done,” Coates said.

Coates expressed that he is expecting the deals to start taking place in the upcoming days now that the tournament is over and talks can be carried on in more clarity.

The Stroke City chairman also added that the team is trying to bring in new players.

“We are hoping to bring one or two new players in,” the chairman claimed.

Talking about the timeline attached to those signings, Coates explained that patience is the main tool for those deals, explaining, “You’re not in control – you just have to be patient and hope things drop for you.”

Stoke City F.C. have recently placed a record Egyptian bid for Al Ahly and Egypt youngster Ramadan Sobhi.

The youngster is reportedly on the move with his parent club accepting the offer put in place by the Potters.

Sobhi, 19, is set to miss his team’s next champions league game in order to complete the move.
