Stoke sign Wolves midfielder

Stoke sign Wolves midfielder

Stoke City have completed their third signing of the summer with the news that Wolves midfielder, Seji Olofinjana has signed for £3m.

The Nigerian international will need a new work permit before the deal is finalised but, under the current rules, that should be a formality. He had signed a new contract with our South Staffordshire rivals only last October but had a clause in his contract that enabled him to move to a Premier League club should they not achieve promotion.

The 28 year old only turned to professional football after getting a degree as a Chemical Engineer and we believe that must make him the only current member of the squad to have been to university.

Since joining Wolves in 2004 he has made 148 appearances and scored 18 goals and leaves Molineux with glowing tributes from his former club with Chief Exec, Jez Moxey calling him 'a model professional who has served us well'.

I've watch Seji about a dozen times over the past three seasons with wolves and every time i've seen him....underwhelmed. The guy plays with no passion, can't shoot, head or tackle, a poor signing. I personally hope i will have to eat my own words.
