Former Potter on the move… Again!

Former Potter on the move… Again!

Former Stoke striker Ade Akinbiyi has in principle agreed to move back to England and play for League 2 side Nott`s County.

The much travelled Nigerian left previous club MLS side Houston Dynamo in August to make room for another player, and has now returned to play for the oldest club in England.

Akinbiyi first played for the Potters in the 2002/2003 campaign when Pulis, during his first spell with the club, brought him in on loan from Crystal Palace. He scored twice in 4 games at the back end of the season including the goal that kept the Potters in the championship against Reading.

He then made the move permanent and became a sort of a cult hero following his tendency to score goals and went on to net 17 times in 59 appearances before moving to Burnley in 2005 for £600,00.

So are County set to become unlucky 13? I don't see him sticking around but neither do I see him quitting after 1 game though, do you?
